These four Ps work together to form the basis of a marketing plan.

In order to effectively market fashion, you need to ask yourself:

WHERE do I compete?(whole market?)

HOW do I compete?(new product? New image?)

WHEN do I compete?(first into market? Wait for demand?)

environment you are intending tobecome a part of.

This process is called an environmental scan

Unless you focus solely on one target audience (which you can do),

you would break your market into segments and use a different strategy to

target each one.
