Thanks for the feedback. Let me try to explaina little more clearly. I guess we need a lot of work on our website copy :)
Basically, what we are trying to do is to work with designers who have designs for a collection that are ready to go but don't have the financing to actually produce them.
You submit your designs to us, we review them and then we talk to see if there is a good fit between us and if it makes sense for us to work together. If so, we take the designs, and work with some manufacturers to create a small run of 101 pieces for each item, then make them available on our website to our members.
We split the revenue (net of production costs)
does that clarify things?
thanks for the clarification...i appreciate your thoughts..i think, you will have a good market, as today fashion industry is on a boom and most of the youngsters today believe in staring up there business after gaining an experience of 2-3 years. even i have been through this stage...do keep me posted once your finalize your plan.
Personally, I think it is an uphill battle. HOWEVER, anything is possible. My concern with it is that I think even a company like Gilt would run into challenges in the long run. And they have a "huge" amount of financing in place.
You may want to read my previous post about Gilt raising 138 Million dollars.
Also, read the Private Shopping Clubs Selling Clothing post.
I most certainly do not want to discourage you. If you put your mind to it, you can make anything happen. Good luck with what ever you decide. The important thing to keep in mind is that many companies WILL make money doing a similar concept to what you are thinking. If their is room for another, it may as well me you making a go at it.
FYI: Here is a site that I started but have not yet had a chance to finish. The designer fashion club...
It sounds like a website put up to finish a class project.
MLoyal is an organization which provides Mobile Loyalty and Mobile coupons services to it's client in FASHION INDUSTRY. So, we have become the part of this community and know what all is happening in this industry and what is the latest trends.
Wish to have a great conversation and discussions.

I think it is a great idea! New designers generally do not have a huge start up capital with never ending financing, it would be a great site to launch their new lines.
What would your target demographic be? Also, how are you planning on advertising your new site?
