“This launch is about taking Degrassi’s fashion influence by the horns. One only has to look at the way high school students embrace clothes from the show to understand Degrassi’s influence.” says Epitome marketing manager. “I believe that this launch was long overdue. There was a need to bridge the gap between what people see on television with the reality on the ground. Also, Canadian teens are having a difficult time deciding which outfit to wear during their prom nights and this fashion line will ease their transition. “

The product launch will target teenage consumers in their final high school year or those who are due for prom night. The purpose of this design is to create a platform where teenagers can purchase a series of chic prom items under one roof at affordable prices. The essence of the designs will be to capture the latest prom trends but still manage to make every individual look unique. It would certainly be unacceptable to find almost everyone with similar outfits at prom. (Kaplan, 2008)
