VCU is Totally in Fashion

I just wanted to give a special thanks to the guys and gals of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Recently we have had many students from the fashion department join the network. We look forward to hearing more from all of you... (by the way, if you complain about any of your professors, please be careful because they may be reading...)

Although the original intention was to keep this network for the "fashion industry only", we are proud to have the…

Are Vests in Style?

Image from TJ Maxx 2008.

When asking if vests are in style, it is important to be clear in regard to gender or age. Actually, although it may not be politically correct, I am going to toss ones "weight" into the equation (if you are a fat man and you plan to wear a vest, please wear a shirt under your vest).

In my opinion,… Continue

Identify Your Fashion Brand’s Unique Selling Point To Increase Product Sales

Most fashion designers plan the online sales of their designs in a bit of a backward manner, meaning that they never properly develop an idea of what truly separates them in the marketplace from their competitors. However, if they did, they could guarantee sales and thereby assure the success of their brand.

Is this a familiar scenario? You’re faced with having to pay a sky-high sample piece rate for a small run, or you’re forced to sign for an extremely high minimum order quantity… Continue

How your fashion website can generate more online sales

One of the most common difficulties I run across in my dealings with fashion designers is that a fancy website with clean graphics and a hip layout really does nothing for generating online apparel or accessory sales or attracting site visitors. Therefore, it’s important to really understand how a website attracts traffic. Some of this is a bit technical, but I’ve tried my best to make it as understandable as possible.

Method 1: Search engine traffic. This refers to traffic as a… Continue

The Psychographics of a Fashion Marketing Campaign

We talked last issue about the “oh my god” effect that happens between like-minded people upon recognition of each other, and as promised, I’m elaborating this week.

Profile of Shattered Girlz

I met the designer of a fantastic t-shirt brand the other day that operates under the label “Shattered Girlz.” She has a gripping personal story that instantly inspires one to root for her success. She suffered betrayal from men into whom she poured her heart and soul, and who in one case… Continue

Communicating with a Fashion Niche Market

As some of you already know, my fashion background is as the VP of Operations for a handbag production and marketing company. My responsibilities include the inception and monitoring of marketing programs for independent designers who may have a few seasons under their belts, have some solid and sellable designs, and who actually have funding.

While working with these clients, we have noticed that it doesn’t matter how cushy the funding, every independent designer that we work with… Continue

More on the Unique Selling Proposition

Last week we brushed over the topic of the Unique Selling Proposition, or USP. However, because this is so central to the workings of your marketing plan, I would like to talk more about it. The USP is used when you’re talking to the press about your designs, when you’re pitching wholesale buyers, or even in your website content. In reality, each piece from your collection should have its own USP as well. This week’s newsletter also includes a worksheet to help you develop your own… Continue

What are the important elements of a successful marketing campaign?

Before you launch any kind of marketing plan, there are some particulars you must get into place first. Many people jump right into the marketing of their designs without first thinking about how to position the designs for maximum impact. Therefore, here are some important things to consider:

Consideration #1: Offer a product that people want

This seems fairly obvious, but if you’re designing size 2 skirts for a plus-sized crowd, you’re not going to sell them. Also, most new moms… Continue
