This weekend, I have been rather busy working on a new fashion website. The new one is designed specifically for presenting current news regarding clothing stores (fashion retailers online and offline). The site will contain news about fashion boutiques, departments stores etc. Currently, I have it set up mostly for the larger fashion retailers.

Russell Athletic is a very large apparel company... I am curious about why their website currently indicates "New Site Coming January 2008" (by the way, today is January 7th). In my opinion, a company of this size should transition between sites a bit faster. They certainly could have managed to keep their old site in place until the new site was complete, tested, and ready to go. I am not sure how long…Continue

In my opinion, this year will be a critical one for fashion designers, fashion boutiques, and all other apparel relevant companies. IF the consumer is truly slowing as the stock market may have signaled again today, shouldn't we be on high alert?
If retail sales are slow, will clothing store buyers have a slower turn of merchandise...
If the turn is slower, won't that slow the rate of purchasing new…

It's an exciting time for me, since my romantic comedy, Girl of My Dreams, about a straitlaced assistant who turns vamp in a reality show to save a dying studio, has just been released.
Since she looks better than plain me, I've changed my profile photo to her image.
In this Cinderella story, my heroine, Jillian, travels the globe from Hollywood, to Waikiki Beach, to Las Vegas, to Venice and Paris, as she advances in the rounds. It looks like she may win the…Continue

Today I unfortunately had to delete someones blog post here on the Fashion Industry Network. I feel badly because the person that posted the message may not have realized that the post was not appropriate. This site unfortunately has a very fine line when determining what is good business promotion and what is not so good... I absolutely want everyone to use this website to help promote their own business, but the idea is also to help educate each other. The blog system can be…Continue
