This report have help us realized that in today’s world, Fashion has been a very huge influence on us. In the fashion industry, Bardot is still like a new baby compared to other competitors. It has some good advantages but overall, Bardot has a lot to improve on at the same time to make the company expand.

Bardot as a company did not do very well in understanding their Competitors. This is one of the most important factors I have observed while doing this report. How can you not understand who your competitors are? If a company do not understand who their competitors are, how are they suppose to compete themselves in the industry? In the marketing world, it is not only important to understand who your targeted segments are, it is also very important to understand and study who your competitors are. However, I have listed out a number of competitor in this report according to the market segment they are targeting at.

Why would young adults buy Bardot instead of other brands? What can Bardot do to attract youngsters these days? Due to influences by the Baby Boomers, people in our world today are willing to spend money on clothing. Especially with young adults preferably from Generation Y and Generation Z, they are the people who would want to look good because of peer pressure. These kids are willing to spend money on clothing within even thinking twice if they are able to afford them.

As well as that, with globalization and outsourcing on the other hand, clothes can be bought for a much cheaper price. Efficiency also plays a enormous role in the fashion industry today. Look at all the big international brands they all portray fast fashion. This is also another section Bardot is not very good at. Just by Increasing efficiency itself, will drives more targeted consumer into stores.

Even though there are imperfections with Bardot today, with improvement to the company I believe Bardot will be climbing up the ladders in no time.
