“Many luxury brands will have been relieved to leave Covid-ravaged 2020 behind. After all, the personal luxury goods sector shrunk for the first time since 2009 with sales back to their 2014 levels. But this depressing statistic masks a happier prospect for 2021, and the following few years. With the environmental situation and other issues likely to get worse this decade, such a boom might well be short-lived, but it’s likely to happen all the same. The question for luxury brands then remains: how can we take advantage of the impending upturn, starting right now? In response, they are taking three new directions to protect their brand desirability in 2021 and beyond: strengthening their relationship with local customers, seeking greater customer intimacy and polishing purposeful luxury credentials”.


The goal of this the 2021 Global Fashion Management at Seoul / 2021 KSMS International Conference is to shed light on Luxury fashion consumption in a post pandemic world in Asia and beyond. Special emphasis is made on understanding the relevant marketing theories and practice.
