How to Make a Statement and Still Be Successful in the Ready-To-Wear Clothing Industry
Dec 19, 9:00AM to Dec 23 , 5:00PM +0530

About this Event

The four-hour How to Make a Statement and Still Be Successful in the Ready-To-Wear Clothing Industry virtual conference will help aspiring designers and fashion entrepreneurs understand how to create an impact in the world while still creating meaningful fashion garments. 

 

From Parisian actress Sarah Bernhardt’s debut in a custom-made pantsuit in 1870 to Queen Victoria’s white wedding dress (wedding dresses used to be black before that), fashion has been the driving force behind changing core ideas and introducing new mindsets. 

But what about retail fashion and ready-to-wear casual clothing? Whereas famous actresses and English queens can easily make a statement with a once-off garment, is it possible to do with mass-produced clothing? Only a few of us will ever reach the ateliers of haute couture, and so the rest of us must find a way to make our voices heard as artists and designers while also still making a living at it. And it is possible, just as Dash London proved.

 

The four-hour How to Make a Statement and Still Be Successful in the Ready-To-Wear Clothing Industry conference is also available as a client-customized private course via EventsX. Please contact the course administrator for details.

What is the purpose of fashion, really?
Fashion, by which we mean the appeal of dressing well and aesthetically, has existed for as long as people have been donning fabrics to protect themselves from the elements. From the beginning, fashion has served a dual purpose—protection, and expression.
Dec 06 9:00AM–12:00PM +0530 · Session
Understanding the dirty subject of economics
Too many artists get buried in the desire to make a statement and forget that the world runs on certain non-negotiable economic rules. It is important to understand these so that your venture has wheels with which to carry you through your journey
Dec 06 12:00PM–5:00PM +0530 · Session
The misunderstood ready-to-wear market
Ready-to-wear has been looked down upon by too many fashionistas, but the ready-to-wear market has far more potential for creating change in many respects
Dec 07 9:00AM–12:00PM +0530 · Session
Sustainable business—you need a cause, a purpose, a vision
Before deciding to make a statement, you need to know what that statement is. This is both more complicated and also simpler than it sounds. But it must be done right
Dec 07 12:00PM–5:00PM +0530 · Session
Why ready-to-wear is an even better way to make a statement than haute couture

Why specialize? Make a new statement every season!
We selected the overall vision in module five. But that doesn’t mean you have to focus only on that issue for the rest of your existence as a business. An artistic business must be flexible, must be willing to change, and must adapt to new purposes and causes as they arise in society
Dec 08 12:00PM–5:00PM +0530 · Session
