Luxury brands major focus is on providing an exceptional experience, which can arguably be hard to achieve online.

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the practice of Electronic Customer Relationship Management in luxury brands. In particular, how fashion luxury brands communicate the luxury value through e-CRM.
