Implications - North American society stresses the importance of individuality and self-autonomy. As such, fashion apparel often caters to the idea of making consumers stand out rather than conform. Corporations looking to gain a competitive edge over their competitors should cater to this specific consumer mentality and advertise products as though they make users seem more individualistic than other brands.
