>> FASHION MAKES THE CUT
The 2021 Global RepTrak featured more luxury brands than ever before, including newcomers Chanel, Burberry, Prada, and Burberry. Even though these are big names in the fashion industry, 2021 is the first year they were included in the Global RepTrak.
Why was this the year fashion was a major player on the reputation field? We can attribute this to a side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic: RepTrak’s reputation score measures emotional connection. Over the course of the year we went through, we imagine that this emotional connection grew – emerging as a desire to connect with what’s always been true: the delight and pleasure of a luxury brand.
