Extracts from this document...


Product Report: I feel that the product I have created is very strong in the marketing sense that it is original yet adaptable for the target group, also it's light weight and eye catching so it fits the intended purpose of evening wear, not only this but it will not clash with many outfits. Also from a business point of view the bag could be marketed in a certain way to attract customers like psychological pricing, which makes the customer feel like it is paying less for the product but in reality it may only be a difference of a few pennies (e.g. �19.99 instead of �20).I have suggested this because the final price for my bag is quite high and this is something I in the future would like to lower in order to attract the potentially highest amount of customers. ...read more.

Also my bag consists of a lot of hand embroidery and it would be unfair it workers were not paid what their work is worth. Also as a cultural point, my Indian step design tends to hold a religious background so that is why it would to be replaced if it was to sell in India because the bag would not be socially acceptable due to religious reasons. Also no dyes were used on the fabric in the process so this is environmentally sustainable as it can cause skin cancer and therefore my product does not promote this. Lastly for health and safety reasons the buttons and diamantes are secure so that small children cannot be harmed by them, also there are no loose bits of beaded lace . ...read more.
