It has been concluded that Johnson and Attmann's 2009 model, integrating three determinants the personality trait of neuroticism, materialism, and fashion interest, is reasoned enough on theoretical and empirical levels and can be a relevant construct to estimate the peculiarities of compulsive buyers' behaviour in the specific context of retail clothing market.
The quantitative empirical research survey method has revealed significant positive relationships among all the mentioned determinants the personality trait of neuroticism, materialism, fashion interest and compulsive clothing buying. The main conclusion of the research is that the most significant factor affecting compulsive clothing buying of Lithuanian women is fashion interest.
