Abstract

Consumers are influenced in their fashion styles in a variety of ways (Bertrandias & Goldsmith, 2006). They often talk to each other, and seek and give opinions. Opinion leadership and opinion seeking are recognized as among the most important word-of-mouth influences on product sales and brand choice (Behling, 1992; Bertrandias & Goldsmith, 2006). Conversely, opinion seekers typically have less interest in and knowledge of products (such as fashion) than opinion leaders and; therefore as consumers, they seek information and advice from opinion leaders (Goldsmith & Clark, 2008).
