The rapid development of the clothing industry in the e-commerce environment had brought abundant opportunities for Chinese merchants, it also had caused problems in terms of cultural identity, culture conflicts, and culture integration, etc. Therefore, the relationship between consumer loyalty and brand culture had been noticed and researched by scholars, but the research on how cross-cultural background influences brand image during Chinese consumers’ decision process is relatively insufficient. Thus, this paper focuses on the relationship between consumers’ values and needs behind their purchasing behaviors and the cross-cultural influences on Chinese brands. Implications are discussed. With the method of literature analysis, this paper mainly studies the impact of cross-cultural brand image on customer purchase decision-making process, and the role of brand image, brand satisfaction brand trust, brand emotion and other factors in the impact process. And have an in-depth understanding of the main aspects of Chinese consumers’ boasted cultural brand image affecting their purchase decisions. This paper puts forward a series of suggestions on the impact of cross-cultural brand image on Chinese consumers’ purchase decisions. And it is concluded that at present, Chinese consumers’ purchase decisions are vulnerable to the influence of cross-cultural brand publicity channels, the length of time entering the Chinese market, product fashion elements and star endorsement effect. The higher the popularity of the brand is, the higher the attraction will be, and the brand uses the vanity and conformity of consumers. Therefore, this paper suggested that Chinese consumers can improve their understanding of the essence of commodities, understand the purpose of commodities and their real demand for commodities, avoid consumption chaos, and consider the differences between Chinese commodity image and cross-cultural commodity image when purchasing commodities. Make a more appropriate and pertinent judgment before buying.
