Today, collaborative fashion approaches are a popular method of reimaging and positioning in contested markets. Fashion collaborations see brands, designers, artists, and companies come together, offering consumers new, alternative products. While shopping continues to be a popular leisure and touristic activity, it is becoming comparable across cities. At present, scholars and practitioners have paid scant attention to collaborative fashion consumption (Botsman & Rogers, 2010). This chapter considers how destinations should become involved with fashion collaborations and drop culture from the offset, establishing specific events for tourists to experience. Ultimately, changing the culture and behavior of shopping tourists to one of event experience and not solely product ownership.
