Fashion Outlet Summary
Fashion Summary   Fashion Terms   Fashion Companies   Fashion Influence

The world of fashion is enormous.  Sometimes a little fashion summary can be advantageous.

An outlet store, factory outlet or factory shop is a brick and mortar or online store in which manufacturers sell their stock inventory directly to the public at discounted prices.  In modern usage, outlet stores are typically manufacturer-branded stores grouped together in outlet malls.  Fashion outlets stores off sell left over (end of season) garments from leading fashion brands or clothing stores.  It is a way for companies to reduce excess inventory.  Some fashion outlet stores sell goods that has been specifically produced for the outlet stores.  While these items may look like those in regular retail stores and bear the same brand name, they are often made with cheaper fabrics, trims or have fewer features than their full-price counterparts.  Manufacturers will produce garments or footwear with lower cost components so that they can retail at lower prices in the outlet shops.
