Local fashion brands in China have significant competition, the international giants. These are well-known brands, which are part of the category known as “fast fashion”. We find Zara, H & M, Uniqlo, Gap, c & a. Chinese brands are developing strategies to compete with these international brands that are already well established in China.
Interestingly, more and more Chinese brands have managed to open shops in the 2nd and 3rd tier cities. By moving to these new cities, brands have the opportunity to grow and have a larger customer base.
Although there has been a rapid growth in international e-commerce, Chinese consumers still visit stores and Chinese brands are squaring up to their international rivals.
