In European countries social factors have a significant influence on the fashion industry. Business needs to introduce the newest fashion trends in order to attract their younger customers and be successful.
Advanced technology allows companies to conduct online shipping, maintain an effective supply chain and distribute raw materials quickly. They need to use the newest technology in order to survive in a fast-moving market.
Generally middle-class people are avoiding expensive products, therefore they tend to buy low priced goods. International diversification might be a risk factor for the fashion retail industry due to changes in people's socio-cultural backgrounds. European fashion firms can benefit in the U.S. because of the value of the dollar, which weakened against the euro after the global financial recession in 2008.
Impacts of culture and globalization on the growth of ZARA
domestic operation from 1975-1988
A lot of governments regulate the environment. The fast fashion industry presents a special problem because companies change clothing lines very quickly, generating significant amounts of waste.
Creating several social relationships and providing aid in poor areas in different developing countries has given Zara and other fashion firms a positive reputation in the international political field.
Changes in patent laws, antitrust legislation, tax rates, and lobbying activities can affect firms significantly.
: As part of Inditex, Zara entered into an agreement with the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the United Nations and agreed to principles and policies of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to improve the economic and social well- being of people. Zara does not use forced labor and do not hire child labor. Zara states that there is no discrimination, provides safe and hygienic working conditions, does not demand extremely excessive working hours and recognizes environmental awareness.
the limited market growth opportunities in spain => main reason to expand internationally.
