Cunningham Gold


A rare street-fashion vignette, often observed on Fifth Avenue in Midtown, is a group of strangers, attracted by one another’s highly individual style of dress, who pause on their way to work to inquire of their clothes. The tradition may vanish, as one member of the group is moving to California. At times, they spontaneously try on one another’s look. Last week, nature provided a backdrop only it could create. In Central Park, a “Brigadoon” mist settled over the lake, and cascades of willows framed the Bow Bridge. All over the city, the ginkgo tree proved once again as the leaves fell that Manhattan streets are indeed paved with gold.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
