This article aims to discover the differences among consumer personality clusters in regard to their extent of fashion consciousness and prestige sensitivity. Data were collected from 251 undergraduate students using self-administered questionnaires. Cluster analysis and MANOVA were employed to assess whether significant differences exist among four personality clusters. The study used the Big Five scale items to measure consumer personality and found that respondents who score low on the "openness to experience" dimension tend to be less prestige sensitive, and those who score high on "extraversion," "agreeableness," and "conscientiousness" tend to be highly fashion conscious.
