I'm brand new to the fashion industry network community. I joined today because I am trying to get feedback on an idea for a fahion membership club. You know, like Gilt Groupe, Rue La La and others.
Here's what I'm interested in trying to do differently:
I'm interested in finding new designers who are trying to launch their line and giving them a place to launch that is full of members who love being the first people to find out about new brands, styles and trends.
Since many new designers don't have the capital to launch their line effectively, we will fund the production of a small run of 101 for each of 10 pieces per designer and sell them exclusively to our members. Once those 101 are sold out, you'll never be able to buy that piece again so if you find something you like, you don't have to worry about showing up to a party and seeing someone else wearing the same outfit!
How does this sound to everyone? More importantly, if you have a few moments, please take a look at the site (it's a beta so may be a little slow to load) and give me some feedback. I'm particularly interested in understanding what questions, you would have when deciding if this was someone you wanted to launch your label with. Or, in general if you were interested in becoming a member.
