Implications - Fashion shows are important events in the fashion world because they let viewers know what styles are going to be hot in the coming seasons. Brands that endorse fashion shows have an amazing chance at gaining new consumers, especially if they give out free samples of a product that they are promoting. This has definitely influenced other brands to set up more accessible booths at which potential buyers can attain more information on a specific product, increasing their chances of purchasing an item.
