TLL’s Guide to Fashion-based Properties

Fashion designers and labels primarily fall into three groups — apparel (and accessories), footwear, and home/interior design. Within these broad groups fall non-personality-driven labels, such as OP, Burberry, and Carter’s, and designer names, such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Norma Kamali.

Fashion-rooted licensing programs typically enable the brand to expand into categories where the licensor has little or no expertise in manufacturing, marketing, design, or distribution, or where licensing is more profitable than maintaining an in-house operation.
