The presentation proposes a new idea for a Zara line extension: Zara for women, a line designed for real women that embraces various body shapes.

The project was done by combining marketing and buying behavior information. Keep in mind that this is a fictitious line. However, actual data about the company and the industry were used to design the marketing plan.
