The consumer has changed. Values and behaviors are shifting, and what’s emerging is a newfound emphasis on “me” as luxury, and on transformative, personal experiences that transcend product or brand. As a result, the retail industry is undergoing not an extinction, but an evolution – a pivot away from telling consumers how to think, feel and buy, towards regaining trust, and rebuilding meaningful relationships with the new consumer. In Episode 4 of Creative Spaces, we’re joined by retail marketing and analytics expert, Margaret Moraskie, as she relates her journey, and the step back from her thirty-year tenure from the industry as a way to gain critical perspective in both her professional and personal life. In our fourth installment, we’re looking at the current and future consumer landscape, what “I am the new luxury” means for brands, and how the increasing use of technology like artificial intelligence will ultimately require a human insight to achieve its full value.
In a world of limitless choice, the power to stand out comes from a brand’s authenticity and its ability to continually inspire audiences.
