      • fashion.nyc

        The .nyc TLD is coming (like .com and .org but just for New York City) and one of the important names will be fashion.nyc.

        What content should be found there? Who should own/control it? What rights should new designers have to be listed on fashion.nyc? What's appropriate and not? ...

          • If you could design a social network for the fashion industry, what features would you include?

            Niche social networks are becoming more and more popular as time goes on. Sites like ning.com and crowdvine.com allow users to create their own social networks for there own specific niches. However, customization is limited. There are some social networks for the fashion community such as:

            http://www.threadme.com/
            http://www.fashionising.com/
            http://www.stylemob.com/
            http://www.threadless.com/
            (include ones that I have missed in the comments!)

            However, my question is to the entire community what would you want to see in a fashion social networking site. Imagine that you had your own team of programmers and designers at your disposal;

            What features would you include?
            Any mobile…

What's "normal" for online sales figures! What's really needed and desired!

                                  • I'm seeking alternative events to show my fashions.

                                    I can't afford to show my fashions at the tents in Bryant Park. So I try to keep my ears open to charity events or what ever else is happening. Choosing many of these alternative events is a trial and error experience. I need a trusted source for where I can find alternative events to market my collection. All too often I find out about opportunities on short notice, or after the fact.

                                      As part of the Italian Hack Collection everyone is welcome to brainstorm and make their very own Emilio Pucci design. With an open source approach this workshop engages on the original source code of the brand and its re-use.

                                      • Recycling previously owned clothes for new fashion

                                        I'm cheap, so I can't really keep up with all the newest fashion trends...unless I make my own versions of new styles or reinvent old clothes. I don't know how to sew, but I want to learn. Maybe some fashion people have some suggestions?
