My Very Own Fashion Line

Lately (well, not so lately actually), i've been dreaming of having my own fashion line. Not something extremely fancy and glam aka Haute Couture, but more towards the casual/street/brit rock line. You know, to the lines of Topshop, Pull and Bear, etc.?

It just seem natural. I love fashion esp from the British Rock / Indie scene and my creative juices would never let me stop thinking that i could come out with cooler designs than those offered in the market. Apart from that, my most faithful sidekicks Danial and moi truly Suffian is all for my plans and are willing to help out in the process. Danial with the ever-so-funky dress sense and Suffian with the creative touches. These for definite, would do wonders.

Hyped up with this in mind, i scribbled down what I imagined and wanted. A really cool store (in a cool uber area that is) displaying my own line (the name i'm still trying to decide lah) of apparels ranging from tees and tops to jeans and shoes.

Then, there will be a section for Malaysian new/upcoming/undiscovered talents. Maybe to the likes of my friend Jezmine who was one of the finalists in the Project Runway Malaysia reality show. I could also hook up with fashion students from the many, many colleges here where they can display and sell their designs and works for very little or no payment at all.

Thinking further, i could also have interesting / unique clothes purchased from elsewhere to be placed in the shop. This is to add variety and choice.

Pheew! Owh kay. Then reality strikes. It seems so easy to come out with a picture, but what about the planning stage? Where do i even begin?? Sheesh. I for one have to decide on the Fashion Line. What will we be having in this line? If printed tees, who would be designing? Where do we get the tee-shirts for print? How do we go about finding a reliable printer to suit our needs? This also applied to the jeans, shoes, tops etc. Then the major question; How much will all this costs and where do we get the funds? Ain't as easy as it sounds huh? I don't even want to begin thinking about the idea of getting the new/upcoming/undiscovered talents. This is endless!! I already feel like giving up!!

If i were to give-up this wonderful2 idea of mine, i'd just be a "mat jenin" without even the slightest effort of living up to the dream. "What a waste of a perfectly brilliant idea", one would say. Someone may just take the idea and make it their own.

So here i am, sitting in my office thinking up means and ways on how i can go about implementing the steps and making my dream come true.

I would like to see you get into this whole fashion line too! You've got my support! Then you can be my fashion consultant and dress me up as a GLAM MOM! LOL!
