Should we develop a fashion industry network t-shirt?
Imagine each year we develop one t-shirt that represents the fashion industry network. Possibly, allow design submissions from members and then we take a vote to determine which shirt design to produce. Actually, I do not really have a voting mechanism on the network (but I am sure we can figure something out).

What are words for? Can you tell when I'm being acerbic?
I know what they're NOT for.
I'll admit, I am a bit of a Johnny-come-lately when it comes to taking issue, Victor and Rolf F/W 2008. Better late than never though. Laughter is the best medicine.......

I have to say there is an ominous feeling around the office today. Two celeb-tard clients have jumped ship to another firm. Luckily it’s not Cruellla’s clients so I’m safe from the head-rolling brigade. Sometimes the politics in an office are scarier than any gory horror film. Jason has nothing over my boss…
The good news it that I’ve been getting mad compliments on my… Continue

First let me start right out of the gate and answer this question. The answer is YES, I probably would buy expensive clothing if I could adequately afford to do so...
However, I think that I would have to be filthy rich to the point that I literally did not know what to do with all of my money. In all honesty, I am often amazed by the price point of certain items. For example, I was recently browsing the… Continue
