Celebrity Fashion Photos

I have recently launched a new website to make it easier to research celebrities. The site is called the Celebrity Fashion Photos website, but actually the site contains more then just images of celebs. Actually, you can search for just about anything. Toward the top right corner of the site you will find a search engine. From there, you can type the name of the celebrity that you are researching.

Shoe Coupon October 2008 : Vans

OK, I am not sure if I am posting this blog message to be kind and share with you a coupon that I received by e-mail, or if I really wanted to show you this image. This image caught my attention because I thought it was rather cool to have images of bats and ghosts and pumpkins on the shoes. Personaly, I am too frugal, to buy shoes that are to be worn on one day, or only a few months of the year (I am more of a buy and wear for at least a year sort of… Continue

When we create size specs, is it fair to say that we use "average" body measurements when determining our final spec sheet measuremens? We utilize fit models, sizing research, experience, etc. However, with all of the best intentions, how can we possibly create a perfect fitting garment when all people have different bodies. Putting aside custom fit clothing, I think that sizing may simply be nothing more then a guessing game. My height is approx. 6' 2" and I wear a size… Continue

Street Inspired Fashion

Graffiti, an art form that was not recognized as "art" until more recent years, has made its mark on the fashion world. From the gritty streets of various cities worldwide to embellishing high-priced Louis Vuitton apparel, graffiti has certainly evolved.

The retail environment certainly is in need of improvement. Anyway, I just wanted to remind everyone to continue with a cautious position on inventory.… Continue

We all want the clothes that we manufacture to be one hundred percent perfect in regard to quality. However, it is very time consuming and costly to complete full quality testing on every single garment produced. This is why the majority of companies will utilize some sort of statistical sampling method.



If we flip a coin one time, the odds of the coin landing on heads is 50%.

If we flip the same coin ten times, it is actually unlikely that we will get exactly 5 heads and 5… Continue
