"Fashion and quality at the best price" & ''Cheap Chic'' You can see, this quote from H&M annual report has shown clearly a strategy that has been successful for many H&M retailers. From a customer's viewpoint, I can agree that H&M provides products with fairly good quality, fashion at the best price! The price is the key point for many customers to choose H&M products. '' While the pricing is cheap, the branding isn't. H&M spends a hefty 4 per cent of revenues on marketing.'' In fact, there are around 2,700 H&M stores in more than 40 countries and 94,000 employees all work hard to bring you fashion and quality at the best price.
In the past few years the cotton prices has soared remarkably and other inflation costs have increased rapidly, which force H&M to face with many difficulties: raising selling prices or taking the temporary margin hit. In my opinion, a main reason why H&M came to this decision is due to the awareness of their value-for-money image. Let's see, guys! Why Magazines | Magazine Advertising | Bauer Media.

As well as making an advert I need to create a poster, and for this I want to be a little bit more creative and look at a short animation sequence.
You may have seen the tv screens up the side of the tube escalators on the London underground, these are fantastic and the slight time delay on each screen means as you go up the escalator you can carry on watching the animation. First I had to come up with what I would show, seeing as I know how I'm going to show it! My first idea was 'looking after me' and I wanted to have the 'me' cut out of different types of fruit to show the inside and show they were healthy options etc. But i was struggling to make this work on screen and my attempt at doing myself ended so badly I was too embarrassed to even photograph it! Bak to the drawing board, and as I was searching for images of fruit and veg I came across this heart made of fruit and veg, and it got me thinking of Milton Glaser and his iconic I heart NY design.

Athletix Female | GENESIS MANNEQUINS | Manufacturer of Mannequins. H&M lines up to compete in booming sportswear market - News : Sport (#378838) BERLIN/FRANKFURT, Germany - Hennes & Mauritz , the world's second-biggest clothing retailer, is launching a new sportswear line with the help of Sochi-bound Swedish Olympians in a bid to outpace discounters like Primark that are snapping at its heels.
The global sportswear market will grow more than 7 percent in 2014, outpacing 5.8 percent growth for broader apparel, according to Euromonitor. H&M hopes that by muscling into a market seen to be worth $220 billion this year it can move away from the cut-throat budget fashion area and towards higher-margin products could help it copy the success of Inditex's mid-market fashion chain Zara. While unlikely to pose a serious challenge to pricey performance gear dominated by Nike Inc and Adidas AG , H&M could chip away at their sales of casual and fitness wear.
"Consumers, particularly female, are looking for fashionable, yet functional apparel," said Euromonitor analyst Ashma Kunde. "Players like Nike and Adidas should be wary. H&M Turns to Sportswear to Make Zara Sweat - Businessweek. H&M, taking a page from Gap and Uniqlo, is stitching together a line of sportswear.
The company, which already stocks underwear endorsed by David Beckham, will start selling the gear in the new year, just in time to outfit Swedish Olympians for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. In fact, Sweden’s Russia-bound athletes helped H&M (HMB:SS) design the stuff—a mix of windbreakers, fleece jackets, and gear for running and yoga. The athletic apparel game is competitive. H&M, the world’s second-largest clothing retailer, will be wrestling for market share with such all-stars as Nike (NKE) and Lululemon (LULU) while tackling more pedestrian players such as Fast Retailing’s (9983:JP) Uniqlo and Gap (GPS), which now has both GapFit and Athleta, a separate brand aimed at active women.
Still, there are a few reasons why it makes sense for H&M to take a shot at yoga bros and marathon moms. 2) No judging: Everyone wants to look good at the gym. H&M introduces new concept for Sport line. Barriers To Entry & The Threat Of New Entrants. Today we will look at how you can use barriers to entry to reduce the threat of new entrants into your market. The threat of new entrants is one of the forces in Michael Porter’s Five Forces model of industry analysis. This threat applies to any business of any size, big or small. It can be particularly damaging if your market is a fixed size and suddenly you find that you have to share it with a competitor who has decided that they see an opportunity. A simple example is if you own the only shoe shop in a small town selling shoes and boots for men, women and children.
Why New Entrants Will Be Attracted To A Market? Any indication that a market is growing, that it is under-served in meeting customers specific needs or particularly profitable will trigger interest from an entrepreneur who believes that there is money to be made from taking part in your market. Evidence that existing businesses are making good profits will persuade entrepreneurs that this as an opportunity too good to miss.
The Future of the Sports Shop - Solutions for Sport. The Future of the Sports Shop Paul Sherratt of Solutions for Sport looks at the future of the sports shop.The sports retail industry is being confronted with unprecedented change. Technological advances, changing consumer spending patterns and economic turmoil means that the sports retail landscape is changing quicker than some retailers (and brands) are able to react. Today’s consumer has vastly different and more sophisticated expectations of product, service, value and environment than five or even three years ago. In the new multichannel reality, the boundaries between virtual and physical space are becoming blurred and retailers are being forced to question the role and function of stores in an environment where their relevance to the connected consumer is increasingly subject to challenge.
Todays shopper has vastly different expectations from the shopper of yesteryear and, in order to survive, the UK sports retailer must understand and embrace these changing expectations. Good luck! Risk management. There are risks and uncertainties related to fashion, weather conditions, macroeconomic changes, climate change, trade interventions, external factors in production countries and foreign currencies, but also in connection with expansion into new markets, the launch of new concepts and how the brand is managed.
Fashion Operating in the fashion industry is a risk in itself. Fashion has a limited shelf-life, and there is always a risk that some part of the collections will not be well received by customers. Within each concept it is important to have the right volumes and achieve the right balance in the mix between fashion basics and the latest trends. In summary, each collection must achieve the right combination of sustainable fashion and quality at the best price. To optimise fashion precision, the Group buys items on an ongoing basis throughout the season. Sustainability is an increasing important factor, and consumers are becoming more and more aware of sustainability issues.
