The 'a degree' brand places particular emphasis on pattern making. Designs are simple, but complex and avant-garde, but classic. The convergence of these apparent dichotomies is intended to symbolize the balance and harmony the brand represents and to reinforce the brand's image as a socially responsible product. The brand targets both male and female consumers across the globe. This is now possible because globalization of the fashion industry has allowed consumers to gain easier access to in-vogue styles at increasingly inexpensive prices,

The brand will be manufactured in Japan to take advantage of this country's tremendous expertise in fashion manufacturing and its access to affordable fabrics. However, in the past, the Japanese fashion industry has had trouble generating substantial business opportunities because it has not been able to attract foreign media and foreign buyers and because it has been perceived as favoring mass production over manufacturing high quality goods that meet….

Fashion Management: Business Plan for an Online Fashion Retail Business
Brand's philosophy

In the past, fashion has been 'all about' following someone else's style -- the style of the moment. Women have tried to fit their bodies and attitudes into what fashion magazines and stylists say they must wear. One season skirts are short; the next they are long. One season black is in; the next season brown is the rage. Our business restores the consumer into the driver's seat of fashion and allows fashion to reflect every consumer's own, personal sense of style.

Of course, in previous eras, people were able to design their own clothes and sew them, but few consumers have the time and knowledge to do that today. Our company gives women the best of both worlds: ready-made fashion designed by them, all with a point and click of the mouse. The shopper can log into our website and….

There is a great consistency in the look and message of all Tory Burch social media sites.

Which one do they do best? Worst?

All of the Tory Burch social media sites are good. Pinterest is the best of all the Tory Burch social media outlets. None are bad, but perhaps the Twitter feed seems a little too off-topic at times.

Fashion
"Eco-fashion" is a term that describes the making and wearing of clothing that takes the environment into account. It is concerned with the health of the planet, including natural resources and the people and animals that inhabit it. Eco fashion also takes in consideration the working conditions of the people in the fashion industry, a particularly timely concern given the recent tragedy in Bangladesh where more than four hundred people died in the collapse of a sub-standard factory building. Eco-fashion, quite simply is better for the planet and for society.

The process of producing garments causes environmental problems. esearchers agree that the textile industry is one of the greatest contributors to environmental pollutants. Dyes, dispersants, acids, bases, salts, detergents, humectants, oxidants, sulfates and carcinogenic ingredients are among the substances used; because of the high quantities of water used in textile processing, these substances become part of wastewaters. Textile dyeing and….

The primary settings in which I developed my skills and knowledge have included my educational institution, factories, and in the offices of business. These three settings offer unique features that make learning take place in distinct ways, using different methods and modes of interacting with material. The social learning aspects also differ in each of these settings, related to my different roles within each. Moreover, some of these settings involve more cognitive processes and critical thinking skills vs. those that offer greater opportunity for hands-on skill development and other technical learning. The combination of multiple settings has allowed for a holistic development of my skills and knowledge.

frica Fashion Week "Off the Runway" Master Class
Speech - frica Fashion Week NY

There are times when we dare to hope for something good, perhaps something that seems unreachable, but we fear that saying our wish aloud may jinx it somehow. So we protect our fragile dream with words. We say, "If the stars are in alignment, our hope will be realized. If the stars are in alignment, our wish will come true." nd to our surprise, the stars do sometimes line up perfectly, leaving us feeling as though a small miracle has happened. frica Fashion Week is one of those miracles; it was born in 2009, just on the cusp of the founding of diree PR & Communications here in New York City. While frica Fashion Week was one of diree's earliest projects, the event grew right along with diree, which is now the premier public relations and communications firm….


The use of technology as stated in the introduction has been a significant contribution to the success of many industries. The museum has hence taken measures to include the use of technology in the settings. In the recent times, the designers have made technology the focal point of all innovations. The museum hence uses the technological advancements to evaluate the nature of designs and sets the industry on the road to success. The museum uses various forms of technological exhibitions, such including the photography and video display section. These technologies are used to showcase the small and medium sized designs on the cutting-edge.

The museum is quite lagging behind in terms of technological advancements. Much as it boasts of technological collections of garments and fashion, the setting in relation to technology is not well presented. The museum has quite misinterpreted technology. It presents technology as the fashion it offers rather than….

She added jackets, some with full profiles, some, like the gold lace one Angelina Jolie was once photographed in, featured ae sleeves, and collarless short jacket. t was the kind of item someone could wear in a very formal setting or at a cocktail party, paired with a tank and jeans.
One tailored wedding gown was paired with a frothy shrug. Her designs never displayed excess, and were always balanced. For example, a merigue-ish skirt featured a form -fitting plain white strapless corset bodice. She also designed a collarless all-lace wedding dress with long sleeves and a-line edge at the hem. Some of her hems were scalloped

Personal Observation

Lhuillier's Beverly Hills bridal salon is a bride's paradise, dreamlike and lovely. One random dress pulled from the rack felt very heavy, substantial, the sign of beautiful, flowing fabric. The dress is one in Lhuillier's latest, her 2009 Bridal Collection. Soft, nearly negligible….

First there is the economic aspect. In order for a business to prosper (and fashion is a business), the efficiency principle must be satisfied and the investments must be covered allowing room for profit. Secondly, it is known that the elite is sooner or later imitated by the masses. Therefore, winning the hearts of the educated and rich elite is the key for long-term success. Such is the case of ice Kayek who is based in Paris. Her latest collections recorded enough success in order to make her known among the fashion elite and high-class customers. As she declares, "the cultural inspirations that can be found in her high priced items (both in the Black label and the Pink label collections) are a metaphorical interpretation of her own city."
She was born in Boursa, the first capital of the Ottoman Empire, and spent "her youth, beside her jeweller father, in….

Givenchy
Count Hubert James Marcel Taffin de Givenchy was born in France in 1927. At the age of 25, he founded his own fashion house, The House of Givenchy. After becoming interested in the world of fashion following an excursion to the 1937 orld's Fair in Paris, he took up studying at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1945 and 1946, he was allowed to design for the likes of Jacques Faith and Lucien Lelong. For four years, starting in 1947, Givenchy worked for avant-garde fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli (Givenchy). He would become famous in the 1950s for creating clean and simple silhouettes that would add to a woman's femininity. It is said that Givenchy was the man who invented separates for sale, which were usually only used for fittings (Givenchy). Givenchy became renowned for dressing classy women like Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy.

Only a year after opening his….

Korto Momolu
Fashion designer Korto Momolu's rise to the pinnacle of her profession is a testimonial to perseverance and faith. Korto, educated in a Canadian boarding school, was unable to return home due to the war in her native Liberia prior to her senior year in high school. Her parents were able to escape to Canada and join Korto and her sister, but were forced to leave everything behind but the clothes on their backs. This displaced family was suddenly thrust into a new life in a strange country leaving relatives and all they had known up to now behind.

Upon her graduation Korto was accepted into one of the top design schools in Canada, but was unable to attend because of a lack of resources. Her story as a designer might have ended at this point except for the determination of her mother and the generosity of a stranger.

Korto's mother found….

This document shouldserve as atemplate or guideline in completing your own personal statement. A personal statement is usually a requirement when applying for college or a job. Personal Statement
I am a passionate fashion designer and advocate of good grooming. I perfected this art from the vast knowledge gained in fashion design experiences from Parsons the New School for Design. I have previously interned for Anna Sui, but currently interning for the production department at Samuel Style Inc. From my internships experiences, I learned about the problems I would encounter on job sites and much hands-on knowledge of the industry. With my passion and desire to be one of the best designers in the world, I have made a decision to pursue a graduate schooling at Integrated Marketing program….


Second, the Madonna Versace ad is well-designed. Madonna's feet are one of the highlights of the photograph. The shoes she wears, which are sandals, breathe whispers of the upcoming warmer seasons. However, the gold and white tones in the ad still reflect the current colder seasons. Madonna is posing laying on a day bed, and her legs are crossed. She appears wrapped up in business of some sort, which again reflects her message as a confident businesswoman. Her eyes look straight into the camera, which is another hint as to Madonna's confident attitude.

Because the ad contains so many consistent messages, it will positively affect consumer behavior. Madonna wears the Versace clothing well; although her celebrity is powerful, it does not necessarily detract from the overall look and appeal of the clothing and accessories made by the designer. Anyone who can afford Versace will be highly likely to heed the subtext….

'Offshoring' can occur within the same company and involve movement of work to a different location of that company outside of the United States, or to a different company altogether" (4). Simply put, outsourcing is contracting with an outside company in any location, while offshoring is contracting with a company outside the United States.
Examples of Exclusive holesale Manufacturers

One example of a wholesale manufacturer that sells exclusively is Mona Lisa Fashions Inc. This "is a full-service cut & sew apparel contractor serving the women's, children's and men's apparel markets." They are located in Allentown, Pennsylvania and are encouraging designers not to outsource or offshore their products but to come to them instead. Another example is Sports and Sports International, a company that manufactures sports accessories and apparel. On their website, they announce, "e are one of the most prominent manufacturers, suppliers and exporters of an exclusively broad range of sports….
