In the modern highly competitive business world, marketing strategies are required to meet the increasingly complex and diverse needs of customers. Therefore, it is very important for companies to have a brand strategy in order to increase their competitiveness in the market. On the other hand, a general decline in consumer confidence among young people has begun to appear since the early 2000s. The Nikkei Regional Industry Research Institute's "Youth Attitude Survey" also shows a decrease in the ownership rate of famous foreign brand clothing in 2007 compared to that of 2000. Kuga's analysis of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications' "National Survey of Consumption" also indicates that young people's interest in fashion has declined.
