(2014) "Gossip, self-monitoring and fashion leadership: comparison of US and South Korean consumers"
The purpose of the study was to investigate tendency to gossip, self-monitoring and fashion leadership among young adult consumers in two cultures: US and South Korean.
the research plan was used is a surveywhich conducted using a convenience sample of 690 (278 US; 412 Korean) university students. Data were analyzed using MANOVA, ANOVA, descriptive statistics, ''2 and Cronbach's alpha reliability.
the most obvious findings are that when Compared US participants and Korean participants, Korean participants scored higher on tendency to gossip and lower on self-monitoring, the two subscales of self-monitoring (ability to modify self-presentation; sensitivity to the appearance of others), and fashion innovativeness and opinion leadership. In both cultures,fashion leaders scored higher on self-monitoring and tendency to gossip than fashion followers, and high self-monitors scored higher on tendency to gossip than low self-monitors. Results of this research supported Hofstede's (1980) theory of cultural dimensions as appropriate for examining differences among fashion consumers from different countries.
this Results cannot be generalized to other population groups or cultures. Further research should include data from participants in different countries and of different ages thereby contributing to the generalizability of the results. we can take a clear picture about how cultures differ so we can predict our palestinian brand reaching ,posisioning,and awaring palestinians or others about our brand.
The findings of the study suggest that gossip, especially in collectivist cultures such as South Korea, can increase brand image and serve as a useful marketing tool. Social media is one way to initialize word-of-mouth communication about a brand.

(2015) "Luxury fashion brands: Factors influencing young female consumers' luxury fashion purchasing in Taiwan"
This paper offered insights into the consumption motives and purchasing behaviour of that market segment in Taiwan against the background of increasing consumption of luxury fashion brands by young female consumers in Asian countries.
the data approach that be used is ,analysis of data collected using face-to-face semi-structured interviews with 23fashion -conscious females aged 18-32 years was completed and new empirical insights are offered.
The study found a high level of involvement in the world of luxury fashion retailing. Asian consumers devoured media commentary, drew inspiration from female celebrities and treated information-seeking and discussion of luxuryy fashion brands with friends as a serious and enjoyable pursuit. The social status conferred by expensive fashion wear motivated them to spend on luxury brands even if their discretionary income was limited. Potential guilt in so doing was assuaged by rationalising that the quality was good and the purchase would be long lasting. Marketers targeting this valuable segment should communicate appeals to an aspirational lifestyle in traditional and social media, effective at reaching young women.
(2010) "A synchronic understanding of involvement with fashion: A promise of freedom and happiness"
This work proposes to study the phenomenon of fashion not as being evolutionary but as a consumption response that is mediated by consumers having a certain perception of time. This work also proposes not only that the temporal dimension seems to be essential in the process of fashion adoption but also that emotional aspects are predominant.
research methodology was by empirical work was conducted based on structural equation modelling with a sample of 341 individuals, using path modelling with a multi'group analysis.
The empirical results show that the needs for social acceptance not only do not arouse interest in new tendencies but even entail unpleasant emotions such as anxiety. Moreover, fashion is more emotionally positive if it has the quality of future.
Not only would it be profitable to promote involvement with fashion by transmitting the importance of others, but also the use of social needs in advertising could be unethical since it would generate unease in the consumer. Since it is clear that, in fashion an orientation to the past is accompanied by an increase in negative emotions, it seems logical to reject designers who praise classic styles without offering anything new.
(2014) "Is Uppsala model valid to fashion retailers? An analysis from internationalisation patterns of fast fashion retailers"
Uppsala internationalisation theory is highly utilised due to its simplicity and applicability. However, there are contrasting results on its assumption that firms follow a gradual internationalisation process. Literature shows that firm strategies (e.g. targeting a niche market) and firm resources (e.g. brand image and asset specificity) may decrease barriers of entry. Global fashion retailers possess these characteristics and may not follow a gradual internationalisation pattern. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to examine whether fashion retailers that target a niche market, have a strong brand image and asset specificity will follow a gradual internationalisation pattern suggested by Uppsala.
methodology was used that two aspects of internationalisation (speed of internationalisation and market selection) were analysed. Market selection was measured by three aspects of distance (geographic distance, economic distance, and culture distance). Data were collected utilising secondary sources and internationalisation patterns were calculated using existing formulas.
Overall, results provided partial support for Uppsala model. After cautious expansion early in internationalisation, fashion retailers experience a period where rapid expansion exists. During initial internationalisation, geographically and economically close markets were chosen, which mirror the Uppsala model. However, no incremental patterns were observed thereafter. In addition, after initially moving to culturally close countries, firms moved to countries with close cultural proximity to each other rather than close to home market.
