"'Brand' is something on which leading fashion labels, department stores, and specialty retailers are intensely focused. Every piece that’s produced and placed on the racks needs to carry and convey a brand message that’s true to the company’s 'DNA.'

In fashion, this is called 'private label' and it happens at every level of the business, from mass to luxury."
