Episode 16: Comparing the Marketing of Luxury Fashion Brands to Brands like ASOS

Diving into common marketing techniques from both high-end and more affordable brands, with inside knowledge about a leading UK premium designer, we’ll be analysing what brands are doing well – and not so well – online.
