FASHION ONLINE SHOPPING – women of the internet.
“The history of shopping is largely a history of women, who have overwhelmingly been the principal shoppers both in reality and in the multifarious representations of shopping” (Bowlby).
“Yes!” the Internet has changed the way we shop fashion.Transforming the way that customers shop, re-shaping the high street as a result. Many of us now shop from our homes and free to do it when ever we want. Only 20 years ago most of us were oblivious to the existence of the internet as a place to shop, but it was not until the invention of the World Wide Web by Tim Berners-Lee that widespread consumer use of the Internet became a possibility. Today we can find an online fashion with nearly every retail product available like handbags, clothes, shoes and more at the best prices and we can do so from any location without worrying about going to the store. No wonder it’s still one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

So it gives a freedom of decision based on the public interaction or opinions. In other words, the digital environment has a growing effect on consumer’s mind and buying behaviour.
