Wechat, equivalent to facebook, is the Chinese popular messaging app. It’s used by celebrities, companies, brands, bloggers and media outlets. With a little less than 500 active users wechat is a real commercial device in China. Thanks to this app as well locals as foreign can communicate with Chinese consumers and let them known their product.

Even if the market fashion is grown in China, the brands must be on these networks to attract Chinese consumers. It’s been what Yoox, Italian online fashion store made with his shop, inside the social media wechat. Yoox by using wechat let Chinese customers know his brand story, can sell directly with an online selling that doesn’t waste Chinese customer’s time and also give instant service appreciated. Coach, the US luxury brand does the same. They put their new products arrival and also some news to be closer to the customers. They also adapt their wechat wallpaper according to Chinese special events. Coach creates also their regular Chinese consumers by sometimes writing a lucky draw in their account which can permit to customers to win something. Abercombie & Fitch, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Zara, Uniqlo, Shiseido, Bata, H&M, Longchamp and the other have a wechat account to target Chinese consumers.
