Giorgio Armani Case Study

...Case Study: Armani: Made in America? Giorgio Armani has successfully established for himself a strong, longstanding name for himself in the luxury retail business, and in the process, has acquired millions of loyal customers who continually enter into his stores. His company is a leading fashion and lifestyle design brand with over 5,000 employees, 13 factories and 500 exclusive retail stores in 46 countries worldwide. Since the beginning of his company, Armani has made sure to remain loyal to his Italian roots: “His success, many say, is what really put Milan on the map, and—along with the Fendis, Missonis, and Versaces—he is often crediting with having made the “Made In Italy” slogan synonymous with excellence in tailoring and design”. In 1978, Armani signed a licensing deal with Italian manufacturing mega-company Grupp Finanziario Tessile to produce and distribute all of his collections and has remained loyal to this day. But has his decision to rely solely on GFT failed in growing alongside the worldwide expansion of his business? America has seen a large decline in the amount of positions that are available in the manufacturing business. Most companies have made the decision to outsource their manufacturing needs to international countries based off of the fact that employees are paid much less than those employed here in the states. It also rids the company of various other expenses e.g. fixed assets, varying wages demands, etc. Exploring the pros and......

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary film making styles and which focuses more on the evolution of a theme or an idea. A photographic essay is an attempt to cover a topic with a linked series of photographs; it may or may not have an accompanying text or......

"The impact of the Hong Kong protests for luxury goods has been that they have created a climate in which Mainland Chinese nationals feel uncomfortable, and as such curtail or cancel their travel to Hong Kong," Bernstein Research said. Hong Kong Protest, also called the Umbrella Movement or Umbrella Revolution began in September 2014 when activists in Hong Kong protested outside the Hong Kong Government headquarters and occupied several major city intersections after China's Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPCSC) announced its decision on proposed electoral reform. The occupied area are primarily the shopping center in Hong Kong, such as Tsim Sha Tsiu, Mong Kok, Causeway Bay, Admiraty, etc. Protests in Hong Kong could hit the sales of luxury goods makers as Mainland Chinese tourists shun the region and buy their expensive items elsewhere, analysts warned. During this period, the stores round the occupied areas close irregularly. As Armani have stores in those three areas, therefore Armani also affected by this issue. However, big discounts on products such as watches and handbags had typically attracted Mainland Chinese visitors to spend on luxury in Hong Kong, where they make up 70 percent of purchases.

...A Write an essay (900-1200 words) in which you analyze and interpret Karen Shephard’s short story “Popular Girls”. A part of your essay must focus on the narrative technique and the many references to labels and certain locations in New York City. Popular Girls  A short story by Karen Shepard    You know who we are. We're Kaethe and Alina, CJ and Sydney. Stephanie. Our hair is blonde or brown or black. Rarely red, rarely curly. It's thick and straight, and falls back into place after we run our fingers through it and hold it away from our faces long enough for you to see our striking eyes. When we do this, you get shivers. It's 1982, and we sit on the benches lining our New York private school's entrance, after classes are over and before we head home. They are old church pews, and we are from another world. Our canvas book bags mass at our feet. They're from Sweden. They come with an excess of zippers, a plastic ID tag on a small chain, and a ruler that we never use. We buy them at Chocolate Soup, on Madison, the store for cool kids. We say things like "Tenth grade is the Howard Johnson's of school life." You can sit on these benches too, but we do not notice you. Last fall we excised some of you from our group by taking you aside five minutes before chapel and saying "It just isn't working out." We see everyone who walks past us, in and out of our 200-year-old originally Episcopalian school. We sweep you with our eyes as if you were a landscape. We've seen...
