Answer - 12 option fashion range plan

ASSESSMENT AND PROJECT BRIEF

Element 1: A report

Context

By any measure the fashion industry is large and complex with different business models competing to capture consumer loyalty and their business. Fundamental to the relationship between consumer and fashion business is the research, creation, sourcing and delivery of a profitable and balanced fashion product offer that accurately reflects current trends, culture & the profile of the target consumers.

Your task

You will create a 12 option fashion range plan

Your individual report will be about the range plan supported with research and analysis.

  • Reflect one of a choice of six retail brands: All Saints

 

  • You can create a range for one of the following

-For women

-For men

-But not children (VAT differentials)

 

  • The range create can be

-A coordinated separates collection

-A product type collection

 

  • Be ranged to 5 fictional city centre UK stores of the same size

-You do not need to specify stores

-The following presumptions will be made for the assessment and within the teaching approach

        -Presume that all 5 stores are bricks and mortar stores

        -Do not include online

-Presume 5 stores are the same physical and turnover size

-Presume all 5 stores are in UK city centre locations

 

  • Have an eight-week lifecycle

-The lifecycle refers to the number of weeks that the range will be “prime”

-Prime refers to the range

  • • Trading optimally
  • • Without fragmentation of option or size

  • • Is positioned in a primary location within store

  • • Will be a focal point within the total range within store

 

  • At the end of the eight week lifecycle new ranges will take over           -The range will no longer be considered “prime”

-It will fragment and loose appeal 


-Be moved to a secondary location within the store 


-Possibly be marked down or removed from the shop floor until the end of season sale 


 

  • Achieve an average % intake margin of 65%

-Intake margin % measures the difference between the cost price paid to the supplier and the retail selling price charged to the customer

  • • Intake margins % vary by
    • • Business model, product type, fashionability country of origin, volume placed
    • • For this assessment reflect differing intake margin % by fashionability
    • • You will need to reflect this within the range plan and ensure that the average intake margin % of all options combined equals a minimum of 65%
    • • Higher than 65% is even better!

 

  • Identifies an open to buy budget (OTB) required to buy the range

 

  • The range will be justified with a report explaining the research undertaken to create the range why it is appropriate for the chosen brand and its target customer

What you do not need to do as part of a complete hand in

• Sketches, CAD designs or garment costings

• We are not asking you to design your proposed range

• Fabric swatches nor colour chips

• Colour descriptions only are acceptable

• Decide suppliers that would be used for the range beyond country of origin

• You do not need to source a factory to manufacture the range

• Describe the stores being ranged beyond noting that they are city centre locations

• You do not need to identify a specific set of stores for the range
