PoloRalphLaurenExecutive Summary

Ralph Lauren is one of fashions leading retailers, who has had great success in creating great demand for their clothing line. In 2003 the fashion industry struggled with the plummeting economy, and a major concern was cutting costs while gaining productivity. Polo Ralph Lauren also felt the economic pressures, the company was able to compensate by targeting European and Japanese markets. According to Polo Ralph Lauren, in terms of growth strategies, “We have a global retail initiative that includes selectively opening new stores and acquiring licensed stores in key markets.” Another key strategy is to continue expanding products to new markets.

Polo Ralph LaurenIndustry Situation and Company Plans

Bases on Polo Ralph Lauren’s three-year analysis, it seems the company has increased dramatically insales since Fiscal Year 2001. Reasons for this include targeting markets in Japan and Europe, and the virtual Ralph Lauren website. Both changes have allowed the company to target great audiences with their products.

Ralph Lauren has had some setbacks. For Fiscal Year 2003, a serious lawsuit against Ralph Lauren has created problems

Futuristically, Polo Ralph Lauren plans to continue developing European and Japanese markets through a process of consolidating the company from having “5 international headquarters in 3 countries into one central European headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland”. In order to effectively centralize the International front, Ralph Lauren plans to upgrade the information support systems already in place to be more efficient and effective. Ralph Lauren expects successful long-term growth from these strategies.

Another avenue for growth is in fashion. This year, traditional tailored suits will be the latest trend in the fashion industry. This is one of Ralph Lauren’s specialties. Sales are expected to rise in all quarters as a result. Also, Polo Ralph Lauren recently launched “a heritage-inspired collection with a weekend influence. The new line has exceeded expectations, domestically and internationally”.
