|Abstract: ||This study explores the revitalization of ageing brands through brand rejuvenation
strategies in the Chinese fashion market. The customer-based brand equity model from
Keller (1998) is employed and expanded with sequential exploratory designs in order to
examine the role of brand personality and brand extension in the process of brand
rejuvenation. The study also explores other brand elements, such as brand image and
A shopping center intercept survey was conducted to collect data in five cities that
are most representative of China: Beijing (Northern), Shantou (Southern), Shanghai
(Eastern), Chengdu (Western) and Wuhan (Central). The sotvey was also conducted in
27 provincial cities. Of the 7,000 infotmants, 4,705 responses are considered valid in
this study. The empirical tests, using structural equation modeling, support the research
hypotheses. Specifically, brand personality, brand extension, and supporting marketing
programs can be effective brand strategies for rejuvenating ageing brands. In addition,
brand image, brand awareness and brand relationships can serve as mediating variables
of the three rejuvenation strategies. These empirically valid rejuvenation strategies can
help companies with ageing brands revitalize or lengthen their brand lifecycles.
