Yes there are opportunities for emerging designers... but  you have to  "Show yourself viable"

This week a young designer informed me she had a great opportunity... my first question... are you  ready... "well" she said "I'm  getting images together and planning  a show"... I looked her dead in the facre and asked are you  ready...

She knew exactly what I meant... She has no product, maybe some samples, No Production, No Distribution, No sales , No marketing ,  No Financing... No proof of viability and let's not  speak on quality control!

Others have, "been in magazines", and "won competitions' but are barely, selling or making ends meet... November 1- january 1 , 2012 we start our campaign to have designers end the year in the black!
