Customer Narrative My customer's name is, Madison, and she is a loyal shopper of Rag and Bone. She is 32 years old and is a new mother. Her style is contemporary and the household income is $250,000. Her favorite products from Rag and Bone consist of: accessories/ handbags/ leather goods. Madison lives in the lower West Side of New York City and is an accessories editor for Harper’s Bazaar. Madison’s husband is a lawyer. Madison wakes up every morning at 6:00am and has to get her two year-old ready for the nanny. She leaves the house at 7:15 am and uses public transportation since having a car in the city is not ideal. She takes the bus uptown, while checking her e-mails on her iPhone, to the Hearst Magazine offices on 57th street. However, before entering the office she stops at Starbucks to get her plain black coffee before starting a long day. Madison’s day consists of pulling accessories for different spreads in the magazine, styling accessories for photo-shoots, and attending meetings. There is not even time for a lunch break she eats while in the office. After a long day at work, leaving around 6, Madison takes the bus back downtown to be with her family. Once Madison gets home it is all about family. Her husband has dinner ready since he gets home from work before and they eat dinner as a family. She then plays and watches some night time television with her daughter, before putting her to bed at 8. Now it is time she spends time with her husband. They watch some television and talk about their days and how everything was. After talking and putting all her attention on her husband she goes on her MacBook Pro to check her e-mails one more time for the day. Finally she goes to sleep around 11:00pm so she is able to get up the next day and do it all over.
