Why does Santa Claus wear red and white?

Why does Santa Claus wear red and white?

Funny you should ask. This is a rather unusual story. I am not certain if this is rumor or fact, but the story that I heard when I was interviewing clothing shop elves was that Santa originally designed an all white outfit. He actually made a prototype and wore it around town at the north pole for several weeks. The elves I spoke to said that outfit design and color was simply exquisite.

Santa wanted to debut the new outfit for… Continue

Fashion Diva Defined

Is it good or bad to be considered a fashion diva? Well, I think this depends on who you ask. Being called a Fashion Diva is some times a positive and some times a negative. In my opinion, if YOU are called a Fashion Diva, it should be considered a "good" thing. Granted, some people believe a diva to be fussy and demanding person. However, their is nothing wrong with "knowing what you want" and "making sure that you get it"... Just try to do it in a polite manner...… Continue

Fashion Industry Provides More Jobs Then Auto Industry : True or False

The Auto Industry may receive $15 Billion of tax payer money to get thru a few months. As of only a few weeks ago, they were asking for $25 billion, and this week it appears they may be getting $15 billion. In the end, who knows what they will actually receive...

My question is, should the government (the tax payer) provide the auto companies $15 billion to get them thru a short time period, or is the nation better served by giving the fashion industry $15… Continue

Fashion Trends

Where is the best place for fashion designers to conduct trend spotting? Been to Europe lately... How about New York, Hong Kong or Moscow.

How fast do fashion trends move? I can't seem to catch any...

OK, I think that… Continue

Lucky Brand Are You Really My Friend

I received a coupon from Lucky Brand that provides 40% Off when shopping online at December 7 - 14, 2008. However, I went to their site today and saw an image indicating 50% Off. When I first saw this, I was a bit insulted. Why would friends and family, receive a lower discount then they offer to everyone else. Ah, then I thought a bit more... I think that the 40% discount is for your entire shopping bill. However, the 50%… Continue

Fashion School First

Recently I have learned a valuable lesson regarding the demographics of the Fashion Industry Network.. In a blog message, a member listed comments regarding a fun evening out "dancing". I had jumped to the conclusion that the author of the comments was a member of the fashion industry and had enjoyed a night about town. My assumption was that she was a fashionista, checking out the night life and cruising from night club to night club investigating fashion trends.. Boy was I… Continue

Beware of the Dog House : JC Penney

Clearly it is a very important time of year for gift giving. To most of us here at the Fashion Industry Network, we already understand that the best gift to give is clothing or fashion accessories such as jewelry. However, for other people it is not so easy making an intelligent purchasing decision.

If you are a man, I highly suggest viewing the following video "before" making your purchasing decisions. If you are a female, you may wish to send the link to the man in your life...… Continue
