Here’s a short video about Uniqlo featuring Fast Retailing CEO, Tadashi Yanai. Although Uniqlo is Asia’s fastest-growing clothing retailer, it is a strategy of “slow fashion” that helps it to succeed in these budget-conscious times. There is plenty of useful business vocabulary here: standout, titan, concept, resonate, frugal, supply & demand, driving force, critical, slowdown, consumption, domestic, variety, overseas.
For anyone living in Japan, it’s hard not to cheer for Uniqlo. In anticipation of global expansion, it even changed its official language to English this year. Coming soon to a store near you, XXS, XXL & XXXL!
