Limitations to the research The study is expecting to experience some limitations starting from the respondents. Given the big size of the fashion industry, finding the right sample consumers with knowledge about the streetwear fashion right from evolution to the present state will be difficult. To mitigate this challenge, the study will supplement its data using secondary sources that will give information on previous research works and data collected for comparative analysis. Also, due to conflicting schedules and the fast-moving streetwear market in China, setting solid meetings with appropriate times will bring conflicts. Similarly, working under a tight schedule of the respondent with little time for the research will end up getting less information from the

respondents. To mitigate this situation, the study will first carryout a feasibility study to identify the right respondents before sampling them. This process will help in reducing redundancy among the respondents and make sure the study gets the most out of them. Another limitation that is anticipated is about the streetwear consumers who may be quite reserved, and hence they will not be willing to divulge information concerning their fashion patterns. In mitigating the situation, it will be essential to conduct informal meetings prior to the interviews to develop a close relationship with the respondents, hence they will be open and willing to share information on the subject matter. Research plan The research plan for the study encompasses several stages from inception of the topic to the presentation of the findings. First, a topic will be chosen, issues to be addressed defined, and a feasibility study carried out. The principles of the precursors will be identified and evaluated. Research will then commence will collection of both secondary and primary sources and recorded in a manageable manner. The data will be analyzed and a presentation of the findings made. Before the interviews, the respondents will be conducted officially through a request letter for their participation in the study with the terms of reference together with the confidentiality of information clause well stated. Since resources for carrying out the research will be limited, it will take three months to conclude and it will involve few participants who will be a representative of the whole population.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
