SOMMAIRE

Chanel has many strengths that makes the multi-billion dollar company strongly established within the elusive designer and haute couture market. The strength of an established brand started by Coco Chanel, carried forward by the talented and creative Karl Lagerfeld and an amazing marketing and management team that has proved Chanel’s ability to attract young consumers since late 90’s till today. Chanel’s success is truly a result of the house’s decision to remain true to Chanel, always desiring to be a style, for “Fashion fades, but style remains”.

We have, therefore, planned a modest increase of 6% in sales this season due to the dedication of our loyal clients and the growing admiration from young professionals. Instead of taking risks, our plan is based on realistic financial expectations. We have noticed a steady increase in profits since 2009 as we, globally, recover from the economic recession. We feel optimistic that this trend in Luxury retail will continue to grow, however, we have and will remain dedicated to our loyal customers by providing tasteful and chic garments to fit into each of their individual lifestyles.
