There are plenty of working mothers working for themselves in the fashion industry. The company could have started with an investment or grown from a home based business to an international online retailing giant! Fashion is all about the small details that pull an outfit together or a button placed in a specific area of the body to accent it. The eye for fashion can be trained over the course of years but there are just some people gifted in knowing what the next fashion trend will be. The following are details that moms with fashion related jobs must consider to stay productive and successful.
Zippers, Buttons, or Slide On
Zippers have the advantage of being extremely easy to get on and off. As a fashion designer you should consider matching the zipper of the purse being worn to the rest of the outfit if possible. Using the same zipper company would be wise so all of the details of the zippers are the same. Buttons can be difficult to undo especially if you are out and have to go to the bathroom. As a fashion guru you need to know this and pick a button that is both easy to unbutton but also will not pop off easily revealing anything. The slide on option only works for certain situations as tighter clothing might be needed to more active situations.
What Seasons It Can Be Worn
The best thing about yoga pants is that they can be worn in nearly every temperature unless it is freezing cold. The fact that they are comfortable and make legs as well as butts look better has made them one of the most people pieces of clothing worn by active women. The perfect outfit can have layers added to it if need be so be careful not to alienate warmer seasons by making one piece of the outfit too warm. For example, a fur can be worn around the shoulders of a dress that might be a bit too cold otherwise.
Materials That Last
The trend of consumers being more and more informed is thanks to the review sites and even reviews on certain ecommerce websites. This makes the need for an outfit to last much more important. No informed consumer wants to buy an expensive outfit that will only survive one or two washes or dry cleanings. Do not skimp on the materials that the clothes are made of as a consumer would rather pay for something that lasts than save a few dollars for a purchase that lasts only a few weeks.
Asking Outside Sources
Asking outside sources like research groups to see what they think of the clothing line is always important. This can help tweak the line before massive manufacturing occurs. Seeing a psychic is what many business owners do from time to time as there are plenty of myths regarding the powers of these people and what they can see. Doing a test launch in a certain city can help gauge the popularity of the line and will help make sure there is not a huge surplus of unsold merchandise.
As you can see this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the details that fashion designers have to deal with. The trends seem to shift overnight in certain genres of clothing while in others it seems to move a bit slowly. It takes one item or outfit to take off for your brand to become a household name. Be an inspiration to the working mothers around you with your fashion sense and products.
