According to the Confederation of British Industry (2015) “The UK’s creative economy is in vibrant health with strong sectors generating benefits across the wider economy”. This view is supported by the British Fashion Council (http://britishfashioncouncil.com) who assert that the thriving UK fashion industry reflects “the voracious appetite of the UK consumer” and is worth in the region of £50bn to the UK economy, when taking into consideration its direct, indirect, induced and „spillover‟ effects…”

YOUR TASK

Select an organization/brand from the UK’s fashion industry (e.g. Footwear – Men‟s, Women‟s, Children‟s; Cosmetics/Beauty; Jewellery/Watches; Accessories; Luggage/Bags; Hair Products and Lingerie). You may select any
organization/brand, however the organization selected must have a website and must be sizeable enough to provide you with the quantity and quality of information necessary for the purposes of this assessment.

Your task is to undertake research into your chosen organization/ brand and its marketing environment.

Produce an individual report based on your research, in which you:

  • evaluate what you consider to be the two key challenges in managing the organization’s marketing operations. For instance, you may want to consider how the organization is responding to specific challenges from the external environment or its competitive environment. (Approximately 1000 words)
  • provide an analysis of the current marketing activities being undertaken by the organization and the extent to which they are achieving the organization’s objectives. You are expected to access secondary sources such as the organization‟s website, annual reports, product information, etc, to assist you in determining the organizations objectives. You should include an indication of the metrics that the brand/organization are likely to apply in assessing the success of their activities. (Approximately 1000 words)
  • evaluate how the brand is embracing two key trends in marketing management. (Approximately 1000 words) For example you may wish to consider trends resulting from the impact of globalization, technology, changes in buyer behaviour etc.

It is expected that you will support your analysis:

  • with evidence (such as, illustrative examples of what the organisation is currently doing, data, relevant citations from referenced sources, etc)
  • by applying relevant marketing concepts, tools and techniques to support the analysis/evaluation
  • by providing a clear insight into the contribution of marketing to the success of the organisation.

You are expected to address the marketing mix and other relevant marketing practices in your work.
