This One Is About A Quote....In Forbes
Jan 10, 2013 - by Fashion Indie
When asked about my feelings towards designer collaborations, I was quoted saying...
Well never escape it. Collaborations are becoming more about the marketing opportunities, less about the sales. Larger brands like H&M and Target need the street cred that comes with working with respected and up & coming designers, stylists, celebrities and more recently, bloggers. Its becoming less about the money being made and more about the attention these collaborations draw and because of that the markets getting a little crowded. I think the trend will be an increase in collaborations. Were going to see lesser known brands using it as a tool to get attention, collaborating on smaller capsule collections with companies like Edition01 or The Cools.
Success is based on a lot of factors like the designer chosen, price point, quality (it should feel like luxury) and availability of the collection online. The person purchasing needs to feel like they are not only getting a great designer piece, but that its priced right.
