Clothing Lines by Project Runway Fashion Designers

What Are Your Favorite Fashion Designers From Project Runway Up To Now?

I have to admit that I love the TV Show Project Runway. Each time a season goes off, I always find myself looking forward to the next season with heavy anticipation. Who will the new designers be? Who will stand out? Who will win? Who is going to bring the drama? Yes the drama is important as well. Nevertheless, it is truly wonderful that Heidi Klum opened up this platform to showcase emerging fashion designers and give them a chance to display their talents to the world. The designers on Project Runway have a special alumni bond because each has experienced a significant turning point in their careers and they went through it together. As we are Facebook Friends with many of the designers and have worked with some – it is wonderful to see them commenting on each other’s collection and so on. This is why we wanted to create this list of all of the Project Runway Designers in one place with links to each of their respected clothing lines. Let us continue to support them. While their seasons may be over in some cases, many are still creating beautiful fashions through their own labels.

Fashion Design Software for Mac

Fashion Design Software, as defined on DigitalFashionPro.com, “is a computer-aided design (CAD) software or system that allows a user to digitally create graphics related to the apparel and textile industry.” There are a few different fashion design software programs for Windows Based Operating Systems but now Digital Fashion Pro, one of the fashion industry’s most popular fashion design systems for fashion designers, is now compatible with Mac Operating Systems by Apple. The team at StartingAClothingLine.com realized that they needed to have a Mac compatible program to go along with the Windows Version due to popular demand. In December of 2015, the new version went on sale so that Mac Users could now design clothing using their Mac Computers without the need for additional software.

SCL Interview with Fashion Label Ushiwear

SCL Interview with Fashion Label Ushiwear

StartingAClothingLine.com (SCL) recently interviewed Jilly the founder and owner of USHIWEAR. We loved what they were doing and had named her line one of the Top 300 Women Owned Fashion Labels in the World. Here is that interview:

How did you come up with the name Ushiwear? Were you excited when it hit you?

Well my surname – Kapusi is pronounced Kap-ushi. With a close friend and after playing around with lots of names for the brand we came up with Ushi. In 2009 we found out it meant Ox in Japanese, so the bulls head idea for our logo was born. Then later whilst visiting ‘Grand Designs Show’ in London we found an ancient relic which was a Shamans headdress, this was the missing link and suddenly the look of for the brand all feel into place. It was a very emotional moment and it meant even more when we found out it was year of the Ox in 2009 when we bought the headdress. All very much meant to be as my birth sign in Taurus the bull.

Sik Silk, Streetwear with Celebrity Style

Posted by Guest Blogger - Eloise Rolfe of Beauty & Ruin on 11/1/2015 to Clothing Line News & Features

For anyone who isn’t familiar with this brand I want to introduce to you, Sik Silk.

Judging by the mass of A-list celebrities rocking this label, and the fact that urban, street apparel is worn globally I doubt this is the first you’ve heard of this brand, however I wanted to write this in recognition of how awesome their clothing really is.

Founded by a humble trio from Scarborough, I doubt the three really understood what they were on to. Inspired by Old school sportswear and the lack of American apparel available in the UK they spotted a gap in the market.

Emerging Trends In Fashion and Wearable Tech

Emerging Trends In Fashion and Wearable Tech

It is without doubt that 2015 has seen its share of emerging technology and fashion meeting to create some of the fashion world’s most innovated trends yet. From the Apple Watch, to breakthroughs in 3D printing, on to Nike’s upcoming self-lacing sneakers, there is a push to advance fashion to new heights. But even as technology becomes more and more fundamentally engraved into our favorite fashion pieces, great design still is the driving catalyst. Technology without the designs the customers will love is just a mere attention seeking gimmick. Sure a designer can put a LED miniature billboard on the back of a leather jacket but who is going to wear it if the design of the jacket isn’t appealing. As fashion embraces more technology, it will be important for fashion designers to still stick to the roots of what has made many designers of past and present household names. The secret sauce is superb design. Technology will always play a secondary role to great design in my opinion. With that being said, let’s talk about some brands getting wearable technology right.

How To Increase Your Fashion Label Sales Right Now

How To Increase Your Fashion Label Sales Right Now

I often get emails on what is the best way to market a clothing line. While there is no best way or one size fits all models, some clear top practices have emerged. One of which is the use of affiliate marketing. You can utilize your own built in affiliate program through your shopping cart provider such as when you have a store powered by 3dcart. Going this route will require that you go out and actively find fashion websites and fashion bloggers to join your program. This might not be the easiest way to get the ball rolling especially if you are new brand. An easier way will be to join an affiliate network. Doing so could provide a tremendous boost in sales such as how Farfetch, a luxury fashion brand was able to increase their sales by 91% by using affiliate marketing.
