Consumer profile 2 - The Creative Fashionista

Name: Leila Wilson

Gender: Female

Age: 29

Race: Asian

From: Manchester

About: Working in a 9-5 office job as a journalist, Leila likes to buy products which have a real concept story and are a little more creative than her office wardrobe. Has the disposable income to attend events, and buy into products but ultimately wants to have fun and experience life while curating a stylised look. Doesn’t buy based on brand but based on story and true connection with the product. Likes to create looks to express herself when outside of the office. Used to be apart of the skate scene so appreciates the history of footwear and apparel in this scene but now buys for enjoyment of product only. Will wear what she buys. Other brands this consumer buys varies as it is about creating a final look, not individual pieces. But invests in creative sneakers as a key part of her outfit.

Taking inspiration from zombie movie culture, the design concept for the collaboration sneaker became a design inspired by survivors and zombies set in a zombie apocalypse. Taking inspiration for the survivors colourway from how footwear and materials in footwear age and change over time and how in an apocalypse setting the consumer would need to 'fix' and 'repair' their own footwear.

The zombie colourway is inspired by imagery, colour and changes noted in zombies from research in zombie theory and cult movies. Especially focussing on the layering of materials, much like the layering of rotting skin on a zombie.

Blood splats to be added at in-store event on Halloween night when sneakers will be worn. 

The design for the survivor footwear took a lot of inspiration on how sneakers wear out over time and what household products can be used to 'repair' them. Looking at tape, staples, ropes (shoe laces?). It also took into account the sneaker may be 'altered' in a zombie apocalypse by a consumer to have pockets etc so that it could store items.

A lot of the design took shape by creating the footwear to appear already used, aged and damaged. Another key part of the design was to add markings for 'days survived' which look drawn onto the footwear.

 

Lastly ways to incorporate branding from the store needed to be taken into account.
