        • 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? ...

          • Technology is the new black - the lighter side of web apps.

            A fun look at both virtual and animated fashion design sites - such a jewelry making, dressing famous people such as Lady GaGa and Alicia Keyes from a virtual closet, and even designing your own tartan. Sure to bring a smile.

            • 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…

              • 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?

                • Creating Stylish but Cost-Conscious Fashions for the REAL Plus-Sized Woman

                  Most plus-sized clothing is designed for the "hour-glassed" shaped figure; sizes 12-20. Can good design be found for the sized 24 and up woman that is something other than mu-mus and caftans without breaking the bank?

                      • 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.

                                • Producing a more Profitable line from a retail standpoint (ie Department stores)

                                  As a visual merchandiser at a department store, I notice some products (ie tops) don't have products to go with them; therefore, if the customer can't make an entire outfit, they put the item back. As designers, we should give buyers several different options.... Buyers should also consider, how will the customer wear this item? How can a visual team merchandise this product to make it sell? I've worked at two major retail chains and have run into the same problems,,, I would love to hear a sales manager, a buyer, and a visual merchandiser speak on this matter
