"This is notable as consumers may be seeking more inexpensive, non-branded apparel."This research is particularly interesting as Amazon doubles down on its mission to be seen as a fashion destination. While it is a top seller for basics, the online giant has had less success bringing customers in to shop for more fashionable pieces.But it has been working hard to overcome this, developing many new private label brands, rolling out its Prime Wardrobea try-before-you-buy service with free return shippingand more recently, launching The Drop, a fashion shopping experience that offers on-demand products available for purchase for only 30 hours at a time.Amazon is also said to be making plans to launch a luxury fashion platform that will work similarly to a concession in a high-end specialty store, according to a recent report from WWD.While Amazon told Business Insider that it does not comment on "rumors or speculation," if the site did come to fruition it could play a crucial role in improving its image in the fashion world and helping it to break into the luxury space.SEE ALSO:Costco proves why it's Amazon-proof as stores like Target and Macy's struggleJoin the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: Gold can cost $1,500 per ounce ' here's why it's so expensive
