The never ending innovations in the world of fashion has some good news for everyone. Technology has merged with the world of fashion designers to provide the perfect fit jean, celebrity red carpet dresses and handbags and accessories. The design professionals are mixed on the idea of knockoffs.
Some professionals see the knock offs as good for the fashion industry. Others see it as outright thievery. It all depends how visible the knockoff company operates and how they market their products. This article addresses new trends in the design world and sources for fashion design for less.
The Virtual Perfect Fit:
In Selfridge’s London store a trendy “Bodymetric” pod will provide an optical scan of your body which measures thousands of spots on your body, according to the International Herald Tribune. According to Rob Young a journalists with the IHT who tried out the futuristic scan for the perfect fitting jean, he was awestruck by its simplicity.
First he was taken to a Sci Fi walk-in closet and told to put his feet across a fluorescent tape, gripped two levers with his hands which created a 45 degree angle and cautioned not to move a muscle. Within eight seconds the optical scanner has created a “point cloud” from data collected from 200,000 points all over his body.
He pays the price in full for the “perfect jean” which runs from $250 to $450. In turn the representative sales adviser transmits his “point cloud” scan to seamstresses and tailors in the Far East and elsewhere. Within two weeks he returns to Selfridges and picks up his trendy packaged jeans.
You guessed it, they are a perfect fit. The Bodymetric boutique began in London in 2004 and opened a second boutique in Harrods. It is always looking for the perfect denim and has licenses with Serfontaine in Los Angeles.
Knockoff Handbags and Accessories:
As the film, “The Devil Love Prada,” shows given a choice most people love well crafted and popular accessories. Unfortunately, only the devil and some angels can afford most of these items. A Prada handbag can easily fetch $1,000. The Fendi brand can easily cost $500 on up. If you are earning one million dollars a week the zeroes do not get in between you and Prada, but most people have a zero and decimal problem which sets off limits in spending. So, for the zero and decimal points challenged among us, meaning you and me, there is Fashion Knockoffs dot com.
Fashion Knockoffs has an on-line store where you can shop till your index finger goes into spasms in search of your designer bag or accessory. Now these are not exact duplicates of Prada, Fendi and other top designers, but they are real close. Prada is famous for its fashion twist lock handbag.
In the Fashion Knockoffs collection you can select among three collections of colors. One is a rich autumn color collection. The other appears to be Spring like in appearance and the last is a night life handbag in hues of silver and champagne. While this bag would be out of reach for most of us. Fashion Knockoffs sells the bags for $32.95.
The Perfect Affordable Wedding Dress:
As most know wedding dresses may run into thousands of dollars. Some retail establishments have wedding dresses in the $550 to $1,000 range. Instead of fretting about money check out the Bridal On Line Store dot com. You will be startled by the selection of exquisitely designed wedding dresses for the amazing price of $299 to $399. These gowns are styled after well known fashion designers. In addition if you have an image of a perfect wedding dress you may scan their library for available gowns.
If you have a film star you admire, you may find a wedding dress named after her. An example is the Grace Kelli. It is an elegant brocaded matte satin gown that comes in white, ivory and champagne. The gown has a sizing chart that is very easy to follow. The bride needs to order at least 10 weeks in advance of the wedding. The shipping to the U.S. is $19.
The wedding dresses range from a wide selection of strapless gowns with a simplistic A-line design to a brocade and beaded collection which is more elaborate. Regular sizes are offered as well as designs for full-figure sizes. The full-figure sizes are charged a slightly higher rate, but not a significant amount of difference in price. The wedding gowns will accommodate all body sizes and shapes.
There are also bridal party outfits that may be purchased at the Bridal On Line Store. In addition, fashion accessories like tiaras and jewelry may be purchased from Bridal On Line. Presently, the purchase of a wedding gown provides you with a tiara for one cent.
Whatever, your needs may be the on-line store will provide and in addition they guarantee your satisfaction. If you are not happy with a wedding dress you may return it. There is a restocking fee, but the savings makes up for any risk you may be taking. The company is located in Dayton, Ohio and they have a convenient exchange program.
Naturally, lingerie items are not returnable. It is a small risk in buying on-line with the advantage of saving $500 to $700 per wedding gown. All of the comments I read have found most customers are very satisfied with the store.
The Trendy Designer Boutique For Cheap:
For the 20 something crowd there is a big splash design boutique that won’t cause a ripple in your in finances. Being hip, hot, pimped out and trendy is in the billions for the fashion industry. If your dad is not Rick Hilton and great grandfather Conrad Hilton you may need to peruse High MTNC dot com fashion boutique. The designs are now and the price is very affordable.
An example is the “Carmen Dress,” a night on the town dress which would sell for hundreds elsewhere. However, if you order from High MTNC dot com, the dress is $39.99. There are many more dresses available you will die for.
That’s not all, you can order designer T-shirts, shorts and accessories for a fraction of the cost of buying them in retail boutiques.
