This study adopts quantitative method by utilising self-completion questionnaire to collect primary data on the Internet. A total of 116 questionnaires are collected and 108 are effective.

The findings show that there are significant differences between the level of fashion involvement and demographic characteristics, which are gender, age, and time spend on fashion. Moreover, the significant relationship exists

between fashion product knowledge and fashion involvement for both groups. As for consumers’ attitudes toward fashion collaboration, both groups are significant with those four variables. For fashion group, the most significant variable is brand familiarity, followed by product fit, brand, and prior attitudes. However, among these four variables, the most significant one for normal group is prior attitudes, followed by brand familiarity, brand, and product fit.

Accordingly, normal group has stronger relationships between these variables and the formation of attitudes. In addition, the transferability of brand image and brand familiarity between partner brands can enhance people to evaluate the brand alliance positively.
