Developing Fashion Websites
During the past few years, I have been asked by a few people to develop their fashion websites. My answer has always been the same... "Sorry, I only develop my own fashion websites". The fact of the matter is that I do not consider myself to be an expert at website development, so I would never take the chance developing sites for other people. I guess I fear letting someone down if I agreed to develop their site and ran into any difficulty with the execution of the plan. Anyway, to make a long story short, I still do NOT help others develop their websites.
Recently I discovered a fairly simple tool that may help fashion companies develop their own websites. Basically, it is a free services provided by Google. I am not sure if the official name, but I believe it is either "Google Sites" or simply "Sites". The system currently provides the following site building tools.
- Single-click page creation
- Customizable look and feel
- Dozens of pre-built templates
- Settings for accessing and sharing information
To test the system, I created a few sites. Please note that these are tests... I understand that they are not very good or complete sites... Just wanted to build these to show you a quick example of what sort of fashion websites you can create. Certainly, you can take your time and do a better job.
In my opinion, the above mentioned service is a good one for someone that wants a basic clothing company website without all the bells and whistles (and at no cost). In all honesty, I am not sure if you can add a shopping cart or other features (possibly, you can). If shopping carts are not currently a feature, possibly Google will add that feature in the future. Anyway, I do not think you can create large fashion sites such as the Fashion Industry Network or Apparel Search from this particular system, but you can probably create a very nice site.
Anyway, if you were looking for a low or no cost method to develop your own website, you may want to check this out as an option.
