Asia Fashion Brand – What will it take for an Asian company, especially Thai, to come up with a luxury brand that will rival the likes of Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Chanel in the future? The first and perhaps most difficult step is the creation of a product or service that people desire. The assumption is you already have the money, so you must create. It can be a product like a car or refrigerator. It can be a spa or a service. But you have to create something that does not exist and would be the dream of some peopleSponsored Links
To create this product or service, the company needs a designer. Look at any of the top luxury brands, and you’ll find star designers like Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Giorgio Armani, and Miuccia Prada who are perhaps the most valuable assets. The companies who create an exclusive brand, here the star system comes in. Stars are not the celebrities but the designers who are the rare ingredient in the whole system

Many of the European luxury brands have a long history, adding depth and timelessness to their products and services
Accept your heritage. What is heritage? `I am Thai. Accepting Thailand’s heritage is crucial in creating a worldwide luxury brand. Thailand’s image is what you will make it. It is what you do that will create your future

Your cheap fashion – our misery The fashion industry’s willingness to continue producing cut-price clothes by exploiting Asia’s cheap labour force, including the children who harvest cotton in Uzbekistan, was discussed in a German television programme on 23 January.
The group of German teenagers, including girls dressed in clothes by the fashion chain H&M, were clearly shocked by the plight of textile workers in Bangladesh.
Journalists from the German TV channel ARD visited this South Asian country to film the working conditions in the factories where closed for the well-known Swedish chain H&M (Hennes and Mauritz) are made.
