Frantzy Fils im new to the network and to the industry and maybe you could inform me on some good manufacturer's for contemporary fashion.Im still in the process of researching as many as I can find world wide,which you know is not easy!! Thanks in advance...
hey thanks for the add we are sponsoring a student designer here in dallas to come to new york and i have been looking for event oganizer or designer house for them to visit please let me know if you can help since you are in new yourk.
I am working in fashion outsourcing for overseas clients and concentrating on knits from India. I understand you are working with different countries . Are you interested to source from india .
thanks for your comments about the bags etc; it's really quite interesting to see the difference in trends at the moment, the thing is I suppose it depends on the market i'm targeting. I loved the idea of the solar panel bags. I think I'll think about those designs a little more, maybe for the men's range.
As for the designers I don't know any male designers that may be interested in marketing in the US at the moment, however i'll keep it mind.
I've listed a few places you should try if you feel you really have something different:
Browns - South Molton Street.( boutique)
Liberty - Regent St (independant department store, designer mix)
Selfridges - Bond Street (designer mix department store, a great place to be stocked, they deal with companies of all sizes)
Diverse - Independent boutique for men and women.
This is also a good web site for looking for the most 'now' things in London: http://www.urbanpath.com/london/menswear/index.htm
Frantzy - thanks for the reply. Sounds like you may have some contacts with stores in NY. If that is the case, you may find lines to rep from this site. You can also look for new designers at Designer Search (DesignerSearch.com)
thanks for your comments and suggestions. Maybe I will look into alternative ways of selling in the US as fast fashion which is been a trend in the UK for a while is slowly on it's way out and people are looking for investments pieces. My aim is to sell to independant boutiques who have more flexibility in there buying; do you know what the middle to high end trend is as the moment?
Frantzy - welcome to the fashion industry network. Please add a bit more in your profile page about your services. You mention that you are a manufacturer? Do you work as an agent for a factory? If so, what country is the manufacturing facility located?
