The report ranked brands according to Luxury Fashion Social Index, which evaluates brands across 5 categories: Social Visibility, the number of conversations a brand generates on social media; General Visibility, the number of conversations generated on news outlets, forums and blogs; Net Sentiment, the ratio of positive and negative statements of brands online; Reach Growth, how much a brand’s following has grown in a month; and Social Engagement & Content, how brands are communicating and responding to their audiences. The maximum score a brand can receive is 500, and the highest score a brand can receive per category is 100.
