The Existential Crisis Of Fashion Industry
The words Covid and crisis are going hand in hand since the past few days. Similarly, the situation has brought an Existential Crisis to Fashion Industry. Read the how and what about it in this post.
The Existential Crisis Of Fashion Industry
What is an Existential Crisis?
It is a phase when an individual questions the purpose, meaning and values of their life. In this case, it is the whole of fashion industry who is facing this crisis. It is not necessarily a negative phase. However, it comes close to depressive disorders and conditions.
Why is there an Existential Crisis In Fashion Industry?
In the pandemic and post pandemic era, a lot of things are being questioned and believes are in process of refining themselves. The essential industries are in demand at the moment and things like fashion are not really the concern right now. Therefore, the priorities of people are changing.
More and more people who are providers of fashion are having a similar complaint. For example, No one wants to buy new clothes or be up to date on the fashion trends while they are locked in their homes. In addition, other major changes in the fashion industry are that the productions have stopped, the shops are not opening, there are no buyers even if you are willing to provide. The overall demand of fashion gone down.
In conclusion, all of this has brought an existential crisis to the fashion industry.
In addition, talking particularly about India, people here are obsessed with the quality and durability of fabrics. This of course, cannot be known without touching and feeling the fabric. So, there is little substitute for the physical buying and shopping.
Being in Style
All fashion lovers will agree that there are somethings that will never go out of fashion. However, in this industry, most things are those which go out of fashion. There is a specific time for each fashion trend. Just like people don’t go shopping for sweaters and shawls in winter, people may not buy the existing fashion produced after the lockdown is open.
Rather than gaining nothing, retailers are putting the existing stocks on sale at heavy discounts. Though there are some gains, the losses are a lot more. Therefore, the returns that people are getting against fashion products are too little.
Change in Choices
There is a change in the kinds of apparels that buyers now prefer to have. Purchases in the lounge wear section have increased a lot. On contrary, those mass produced due to high demands are left in the warehouses. Since the sales have gone down and there is a lock- down, brands have reduced advertising or completely stopped it. Therefore, there is a crisis for advertisers as well.
Newer Ways of Promotion
The industry and its stakeholders are coming up with new ways to keep the consumers engages. For instance, check out The Best Of Met Gala Challenge.
In this way, stakeholders are making sure that though fashion consumption has gone down the craze of fashion remains intact.
The industry to keep its existence intact is accommodating newer things. For instance, coming up with new ideas of sustainable fashion. In addition, most brands are getting in production of masks and safety essentials that are currently the need of the hour.
