The Journal of Interactive Advertising (JIAD), owned and published by the American Academy
of Advertising, is a refereed publication designed to promote our understanding of interactive
advertising, marketing, and communication in a networked world. The Journal will publish
a special issue on ¡°Interactive Advertising and Digital Communications in Fashion¡± with papers
presented in ¡°Interactive Advertising and Digital Communications in Fashion¡± track at the 2019
Global Fashion Marketing Conference at Paris (http://gammaconference.org/2019/).
This special issue examines the intersection of interactive advertising and fashion consumer behavior.
Over the past several years, interactive advertising has provided new opportunities for fashion brands
and products to connect with their target customers more personally and innovatively. For example,
Chanel and Burberry have been recognized as the most influential luxury brands on social through
its digital strategies. Meanwhile, Instagram has become the most influential source for fashion insight
and the top social media site for fashion brand followers.
As interactive technologies continue to evolve, newer platforms such as artificial intelligence (AI),
augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and voice/image recognition technology have vastly
changed fashion consumer behavior. It is undoubtedly that research related to interactive advertising
and fashion consumer behavior is needed given the growth of young fashion consumers along with new
trends in interactive media.
The landscape of interactive advertising has been changed over the past decade. Today, interactive
advertising encompasses a variety of forms such as search, email, display, mobile, digital video, audio,
programmatic, social, advergaming, interactive billboard, and behavioral advertising (Interactive
Advertising Bureau, https://www.iab.com/). With the advent of new technologies, interactive advertising
presents tremendous opportunities for consumer to consumer and consumer to brand exchanges through
¡°communication, interaction, control, change, and creation via computer-mediated experiences¡±
(Daugherty et al. 2017). How do fashion marketers use interactive advertising to connect with their
consumers? How has interactive advertising changed and impacted fashion consumer behavior?
This special issue seeks to answer these questions with academic research on interactive advertising
and consumer behavior toward fashion.
Potential topics may include, but are not limited to the following:
Interactive advertising effectiveness related to fashion brands
Internet advertising and fashion consumer behavior
Social media and fashion/luxury brands (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, WeChat, Weibo, Pinterest)
Fashion influencers, bloggers, and vloggers
Personalization and customization in fashion advertising strategy
Relationship marketing and fashion consumers
Electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) and fashion marketing
Online product reviews and user-generated content (UGC) for fashion brands
Online community for fashion consumers
