Abstract Compared to consumers’ focus, in the past, on the functional aspect of fashion products, consumers recently tend to place more importance on their impressive and memorable experiences in purchasing process. As consumer’s interest changes from functional aspects to individual experience in purchasing process, fashion brands try to convey the identity of the brand through creating favourable consumers’ experiences. Therefore, this study explores the effect of individuals’ aesthetic experiences with fashion brands’ SNS accounts on their attitudes. More specifically, the study evaluates whether consumers enjoy the flow of fashion brands’ SNS accounts and form purchase intentions through their aesthetic experiences and product placement. Through a survey, empirical testing was done to investigate the effect of the aesthetic experience on of flow and purchase intentions. The current study tests the interaction effect among perceived aesthetic experience, narrative images, and product placement employing 2×2×2 MANOVA. The findings herein reveal that the aesthetic experience affects flow and purchase intention, and that there is a statistically significant interaction effect between aesthetic experience, narrative images, and product placement.
