Staying on Top of Fashion Trends — We’re Experts at It!
How do we do it? We get asked that a lot. How do we stay at the forefront of the women’s fashion industry? How have we managed to grow our brand to over 75 locations, and counting? How do we remain one of the best investments you can make if you’re interested in a fashion franchising opportunity? Well, the answer is simple: we never stop. We never stop learning, never stop working, and never stop paying close attention to the fashion influences and trends that delight our customers. It’s not always easy to stay ahead of a curve that’s constantly shifting — after all, the fashion world is dynamic, which makes it interesting and fun. But we’re committed to bringing the very best product we can to our franchisees and their customers — and here’s how we do that.
We’re Fast-fashion Experts
In all the years we’ve been in the women’s fashion industry, there’s one thing we’ve learned for certain — each of our customers has her own sense of style, and she’s shopping at Apricot Lane because she wants to express that side of herself affordably and in real time. She doesn’t want to wait ages before her favorite runway look hits her favorite clothing store; she wants to find it and buy it right away, so she can enjoy it before anyone else and while it’s still on-trend. Apricot Lane knows this, which is why we’ve become leaders in the fast-fashion industry. What is fast-fashion? It’s a segment of the women’s fashion industry characterized by affordable pricing, quick runway-to-retail turnaround time, and limited production of items to keep inventory unique and fresh. Because we’re committed to the fast-fashion premise, our buyers attend some of the largest and best fashion trade shows in America, and we meet regularly with vendors in the Los Angeles Fashion District to take advantage of unique buying opportunities. That means our franchisees are constantly benefitting from fresh and fashionable merchandise they can delight their customers with. Fast-fashion is fun, it appeals to shoppers of all ages, and it’s a concept that Apricot Lane does better than anyone else.
