I recently was reminded of English cut when I met the gentleman who had introduced the blogging culture to the bespoke tailor in question @ BarCamp. An excellent example of use of blogs in business! I encourage all designers to peruse it!So How do you define yourself! How do you expect others to define you! There is a huge amount of talent among out there! I recently attended Plitzs Fashion Week presentation and I APPLAUd them! Look For post and video coming soon. But I was alarmed At the loud behavior from some attendees. A Fashion designers' FAshion week Presentation is for all intent and purposes abusiness presentation! And These professional would not have conducted themselves in such a maner @ their professional showcase! But many of us have ceased being in the business of the design and sale of clothing. We Are solely stage performers with an established circuit! And lest you think I disapprove, I believe that circuit is vital , but again What Are You! Where is the Money at! Before you answer check out this site!

Then answer this designer survey Let's get a handle on our industry!

Examine the various levels of detail and pricing involved in

Check out bespoke

"Bespoke is a usually British English term for clothing made at a customer's behest, and exactly to the customer's specification. Bespoke clothing is created without use of a pre-existing pattern; rather, the tailor makes the pattern based on the customer's body. This separates bespoke from "made to measure" clothing, which is made using a base pattern that is modified to the customer's body.

"Ready to wear" clothing is made to a uniform pattern, without variation.

"Bespoke" refers to the act of "speaking" for the cloth, choosing it to be made into a garment.
