I saw some guy post about this yesterday. I want to start my own brand too. I don't care about money or fame. I have a lot of ideas and i just want my creative vision put to use. Just seing people in my creations seems rewarding enough. Any one got any real info or insights? I am mostly curious about selecting manufactures, how much money ill need to start, and stuff of that nature. I have ideas basically but need someone to execute as i myself am relatively unskilled at sewing and especially producing a shit ton of pieces if needed.
pic slightly related. something i plan to do my own take on as it is one of my favorite pieces. I was thinking double layered pants that created even more stacks and crinkling.
Without some serious knowledge on fashion no one will work with you. You won't be able to articulate what your trying to design at all. Even if you could create a drawing of exactly what you want which I'm assuming you can't do it would never turn out the same. Everyone would love to create their own brands trust me I've thought about it a lot, but even kids graduating from Antwerp which is probably one of the best connected schools out there rarely start their own brands right after they graduate. It just seems like something many people want to design but think that their thoughts and ideas alone will be able to draft the pieces, select fabric, find seamstresses etc. I said this for the other guy but I would really caution you against starting your own brand unless you have some serious knowledge of design under your belt.
>I was thinking double layered pants that created even more stacks and crinkling.
ok..that's a really uninspired dead horse that doesn't work, and doesn't need another beating. Honestly it's incredibly arrogant to look to make your own brand without any kind of knowledge or expertise. If you are serious you need to study and hone your craft, but you're likely just another self entitled prick.
This is an enjoyable piece about KvA and how he started out.
Which basically underlines this post:
fashion school student here
honestly what you want to do is not own a company, but rather design
do what >>8880993 said
study fashion design
what you want to do is be a creative director
