Quantitative research is "the process of testing relationships, differences and cause and effect interations among and between variables" (Wood & Haber 2010). Quasi-experimental design and Experimental design are two differnt methods that researchers use. The difference between the two methods is that in quasi-experimental design, subjects cannot be randanly assigned where with experimental design, subjects can be randonly assigned to groups.

The true experimental design is considered the "golg standard" in research design (LoBiiondo-Wood & Haber, 2010). One of the strengths that the experimental design has is that there is a better chance with experimental design of determining if the intervention caused a change. A second strengh of experimental design is that the subjects can be randomly assigned into groups and thus studies using randomization are considered true experimental designs. A third strength of the experimental design is that randomization or control grpups and a more diverse selection of subjects.

Weaknesses of Experimental Design include the artificial setting of the experiment limited ability to generalize findings and limited ability to manipulate variables. The artificial setting of the Experimetal Design is not neutral, making it difficult to appply real-world settings. Strengths that the Quasi-Experimental Design has include the large sample size, monimal threat to external validities, and more generalized. Weaknesses of Quasi- Experimental Design are loss of control, limited in conclusive results of cause and effects, and internal validities.

The study done by Oswalt, Biasini, Willson and Mrug (2009) would be considered as an experimental design. The participants were randomized. The subjects were selected from a random table number and then randomly assigned to a control group (Oswalt, Mrug, & Biasini, 2009, p. 285). The…...

Iris Van Herpen Fashion Show Analysis by Angela Papadopoulos-Fortune

...HIGH VOLTAGE HAUTE COUTURE- IRIS VAN HERPEN 2013 SHOW ANALYSIS What was it about Iris van Herpen’s High Voltage Haute Couture Show during Paris Couture Week 2013 that was so ‘electrifying’ ? Everything. As a guest member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne for the fourth season in a row, she didn’t fail to deliver. One would not have expected anything less from this avantgarde Créateur as this is exactly what she is - a Créateur, although let’s not take away the kudos from her many collaborators who season after season help her invent and develop new and strange ways of making a frock. In fact it would be like taking away Lesage from Chanel or Dior but one might argue that it wasn’t this craftsmanship that is part of the backbone of what Couture is all about and was shown to the select few who may actually afford to be able to buy it and to the press and critics who would either love it or at the very worst not understand it. But then we all know that Haute Couture is not about who can afford to buy and wear it, it’s about the €240 billion global industry that revolves around selling the bag, the shoe, the make-up or the perfume that goes with it, which at this point in time, Iris does not have. It is interesting that the Chambre Syndicale invited van Herpen to show her exceptional frocks. To the traditionalist or the outsider they may not tick all the ‘Haute Couture’ boxes but look carefully, they do and the Dutchwoman has added a few more boxes of...

...Fashion Observation Analysis 1. Go to a public place and OBSERVE the community of people in that place for at least 30 minutes; perhaps as long as 60 minutes. In your report, describe the setting and note the date and time of your observation. Describe the element of “community” that you observed. The public place, in which I chose to observe fashion, was a community fall festival. This festival occurs once a year and brings people from several communities. I arrived at the festival in early afternoon, around 12:30 pm. The festival was just starting to get crowded. At this time there were mostly families with children present. I observed numerous families with babies in strollers. There were at least twenty “vendor” booths operating this day. Vendor booths are individuals or companies who have come to the festival and set up a booth or concession truck to sell and promote their products. There were booths selling homemade baked goods, hair bows for little girls, Halloween and Christmas decorations, and make-up, to name a few. This festival also included a small carnival with rides and games. 2. Take notes describing your observations, giving special attention to recording: A. The ages and other demographic characteristics that are observed; elaborate in your description about how you determined demographic characteristics such as socio- economic class and education levels. Throughout the course of my observation, I noticed that most of vendors that were......

...Memo To: Professor Montgomery From: Laura Graham Date: 9/16/12 Re: The Fashion Channel Problem/Opportunity Identification The Fashion Channel (TFC), is a successful fashion network that wants to strengthen its competitive position and increase revenue. Recently, competing networks have stolen key viewers; however, marketing initiatives can attract viewers and advertisers. ------------------------------------------------- Situation Analysis TFC wishes to strengthen its competitive position and generate more advertisement revenue. It has the advantage of being the only channel dedicated solely to fashion. While competition for viewers between cable channels is fierce, TFC has the opportunity to seize the key 18-34 female demographic. The company’s strengths stem from its identity as a broadly accessible niche network. TFC sells approximately 2,000 minutes of advertisements a week to cosmetics companies, brand name clothing designers, and car manufacturers. As a basic channel, most consumers automatically receive it with their cable package. On the other hand, the company is facing pressure from other channels whose fashion segments are gaining popularity. To gain wider viewership and higher ad revenue, TFC must use marketing to lay a foundation for future growth. External market conditions seem reasonably stable for business at this time (2006-2007). Consumer prices are expected to rise by about 4% in 2007, which is above 2006’s 2.5% price increase.......

Case Analysis of “the Fashion Channel”

...Introduction and Problem Definition The Fashion Channel (TFC) was a widely available niche cable network which only offers fashion-oriented programming. It was very successful until other regular networks began to copy its concept and take market share of it, which as a result, had a severe negative effect on TFC’s advertising revenue and affiliate fees. The problem is how to develop the segmentation and positioning, change the current content of programming, and reach the target customers, so as to get back those market shares from competitors, create more revenues and maintain TFC’s early standing. Situation analysis  External Analysis: There were several hundred competitors in this industry and they took note of TFC’s concepts. TFC faced double-edged competition rendering it have to focus on not only ratings and demographics but also program subjects. Moreover, surveys showed that TFC had the lowest indexes, which actually made its affiliate fee at the low end as well. At the same time, the target consumers of competitors were premium CPM (cost per thousand)’s groups, while TFC only appealed to the less valued group. Ad industry was booming and competition was fierce. Ad buyers began to use surveys and optimizer programs to make decisions, which made rating and target group become more important to network companies. In general, consumers were fickle. Their disappointment and switch would lead to the losing of operator, affiliates and distribution support.......

...3.The rise of digital media has democratized fashion journalism, shifting traditional power relationships and producing different kinds of representation Discuss and critically evaluate this statement with reference to the fashion media. INTRODUCTION The digital revolution, including the mechanical, electronic and digital technology, took off in the 1980s. This revolution brought tremendous changes due to the computing and communication technologies. Analogous to the agricultural revolution and the industrial revolution, the digital revolution marked the beginning of the information age. The idea is that the current age will be characterized by the ability of the individuals to transfer information freely, and to have instant access to knowledge that previously would have been difficult or impossible to find. The main component of this revolution is the mass production of computers and mobile phones. As a matter of facts, the number of Internet users in 1990, being 2.8 million, increased by approximately 75.000% in the next eleven years, reaching 2.095 billion users in 2011. The positive aspect of this revolution is that it enhanced society’s growth and development at an impressive rate. The economic impact of the digital revolution has been enormous.Without the World Wide Web (WWW), globalization and outsourcing would not be at the level it is today. Other positive aspects are the interconnectivity, the ease of communication and the exposure to information. These......

The Fashion Channel Case Analysis

...Situational and SWOT Analysis The Fashion Channel is a network dedicated to fashion twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Since it was founded in 1996, it has successfully achieved profit growth above the industry average rate and steady revenue. TFC reaches more than 80 million households in the United States, and targets a wide variety of demographics, specifically, viewers between the ages of 35 and 54. Impressed by The Fashion Channels’ success, other markets such as CNN and Lifetime started adding fashion related programming to their networks, becoming a threat to TFC. Currently, TFC customers’ satisfaction is low and revenues are projected to decline. The Fashion Channel must implement a new strategy for segmentation and advertising to attract more viewers to increase ratings and revenue. Strengths: • TFC is the only network dedicated to fashion 24/7. • The channel appeals to women between the ages of 35 and 54. • TFC is included in the basic cable package that is in approximately 80 million households. • It is a unique market. • TFC has achieved full penetration of available households. Weaknesses: • By only showing fashion related programming, it is not a diversified market. • TFC grew too quickly and did not develop a detailed segmentation, branding, or position strategy. • Some of the members of the leadership team are resistant to change. • TFC does not target any specific viewer segments. • Customer satisfaction is......
