Consumer Fashion Innovativeness Across Cultures: a Test of Scale Reliability and Measurement Invariance

This study attempts to establish measurement invariance for a fashion innovativeness scale across five diverse cultures with samples from Korea (N = 639), China (N = 523), India (N = 172) USA (N = 399), and France (N = 428). The results from a series of confirmatory factor analyses indicate that the fashion innovativeness scale is applicable to culturally divergent countries. Implications of findings are discussed.
