The weekend roundup of the quirky fashion trends:
Fashion trends for the month are quirky and fun at the same time. On one hand we have brands vying for the attention of the customers and on the other hand the audacity of the fashion is leaving us Wonderstruck!
The designers believe that development of the fashion trends is easy but customer retention is not. Hence, brands should offer loyalty program to Honor its customers. True retention is when customers come back to repurchase the brand products. It is imperative to state that luxury brands rarely offer discounts. This makes it out of reach of average pockets.
Because of these reasons, creating personalised service Is important for optimal performance of the brand.
The importance of fashion brands lies on understanding customers as an individual entity rather than a segmented base. Thank goodness that the brands are becoming more sustainable.
These attempts have yielded positive feedback from the customer with few exceptions as well. This process helps designers to overcome issues in setting up of the brand as well as increasing the market for your process.
Taking leaf out of Gaultier’s plan for this year, the idea is of introducing cabaret show as a part of its freak show. The life of the designer Gaultier is also to be presented.
Fashion Nova, an American website is making news for all the right reasons. Their stylish dresses slay the occasion. One can find party dresses to lingerie here. What’s the USP of the site? Their risque pieces of clothing.
The site has the boldest and stylish clothing designs that are on the winning platform of ultra bold statement pieces. The buyers of these dresses are the girls who call themselves as adventure enthusiasts while being inspirational to the eyes.
The follower base is a strong 13.3 million crowd. Further, Instagram is the major draw for their risque pieces.
Italian designer label: Golden Goose has a pair of shoes that makes Twitter’s favorite retweets. The superstar version of taped sneakers is held together by adhesive!
Big question: Why are they viral? Because right people are labelling it hideous. In similar tweet, Christine Sydelko retweeted the shoes stating that some people can’t afford one while these hideous ones go for above 500 dollars.
designers have no qualms on giving damaged pieces as style quotient. The label earned quite a few grands just from negative publicity stunt!
We remember that similar style was adopted by Givenchy. A ripped sweater went for above a thousand dollars! Nordstrom too rocked the racks with their muddy jeans on the name of fashion. (What if Indian parents see you spending thousands on a piece of such innocence? You know what will be next)
With all innocence, our parents too had their own fashion quirks. From bell bottoms to polka dotted shirts, who says that quirks are uncommon and unmarketable?
Fashion models and their miseries:
Our Weekly fashion trends wouldn’t be compelling without the hint of the world of top models.
Glamour industry surely compels many of us to itself but it too had its negative sides. No, we are not talking about Madhur Bhandarkar and his movie but real life situations faced by models. A recent report by the Economic Times has us on tizzy.
Firstly, we perceive these glam ladies live their lives to the fullest. Walking the ramp with high end dresses at Paris and other fashion hubs. Alternatively, their plight is hard to miss. Most of the models start out with the hope of pocket expenses and end up in debt of agencies. The glamour comes with a price.
One model claims her agency gave her a car and later charged an hefty price from her lean paycheck. The apartments are on sharing basis and still expensive. Instead of earning a living, most end under unimaginable debt of their agency. This makes them more or less bound to the same.
Power of bold statement:
Finally, the brands like Marc Jacobs as well as Rodarte are getting favoured by the young people. This bold statement and voluminous looks are like confectionery goodies! With Colors like pink and yellow, they are circus art for a budget bloopers.
The bit too pretty, these pink gowns and equally pink accessories make us feel like cotton candy while yellows help you stand out.
Though the pink ones may not be practical in daily life yet high end fashion editorial reviews contain privileged notes on the same.
Besides the brighter yellow hues, another shade of buttercup yellow makes us spread much awaited cheer in autumn. The shade makes it great for day dresses while may not be found in formal wear as of Now.
Similarly, the neon colours are back in trend. After powersuits, the neons are now on demand for accessories as well.
