Controversial fashion brand Brandy Melville

The fashion brand which has made Scarlett popular was founded in 1970 in Italy by father and son Silvio and Stephan Marsan. The name of their company ‘Brandy Melville’ was a character in a book Stephan read and he was the one to come up with the name.

Their first retail store was opened in Los Angeles in 2009, and by 2016 they counted over 100 stores worldwide. The brand is known for not spending a lot of money on advertising, as they are mostly focused on using word-of-mouth and social media to advertise their clothes. Although the company is originally from Europe, they are mostly focused on adjusting their prices for women living in the US.

Women have described Brandy Melville as ‘trend-setting’, ‘relevant’, cool and fast fashion’, and one of the reasons why their clothes are one-size and are mostly bought by teenagers is that their product research team is made of teenagers of age 15 and up.
