What Brands are Being Sold? Are they recognized and respected? These are some of the most critical questions any Franchisee must consider when determining if a franchise is right for them. When opening a Couture Traders Franchise, you are dealing with some of the most recognized and revered brands in the world. When someone who knows fashion, sees brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel or Gucci, it invokes a feeling of quality, class and luxury. Beyond the instant recognition that these brands have, Couture Traders and our Franchisees benefit daily from the millions of dollars that these brands spend in marketing and advertising. Instant recognition, instant brand respect and instant assumption of quality.
