Research and Consultancy

Rezwana’s research interest includes Sustainable Fashion, Luxury Branding, Consumer Behaviour, Circular Economy & Digital Marketing.

She is particularly passionate about understanding consumer behaviour and the role it plays in shaping sustainable practices in the fashion industry. Her current research focuses on sustainable luxury, and more specifically, how consumers balance their desire for luxury consumption and sustainable practices to achieve a harmonious coexistence between the two. She is also fascinated by several consumer behaviour theories, and has adopted Heider’s Balance Theory in her research, which proposes that individuals strive for balance in their beliefs and attitude to avoid cognitive dissonance.
