Business Takeaway for Entrepreneurs
Let’s return briefly to her main clothing line. L.A.M.B. markets not just apparel, but shoes, accessories, bags, watches, and fragrances. Stefani wears and sports all of her line’s items, and not just at launches or promotional events, but all the time. Why is this important? Because it shapes her brand in terms of authenticity. She’s not just hawking items, she’s promoting her lifestyle and Living Her Brand. She even incorporates her clothing line into her music. In Harajuku Girls, she sings “Just wait 'til you get your little hands on L.A.M.B.”
