    Have you ever wondered how it is that haute couture fashion houses such as Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester make money? One possible answer: by being open to opportunities.

    Designing uniforms

    Earlier this week, the staff at Kensington Palace unveiled their new uniforms, which were designed by high-end British fashion label Jaeger. Won’t be long before Prince William and Kate Middleton can take up residence alongside the gold-trimmed staff.

    Antwerp, Belgium-based designer Dries Van Noten may not produce uniforms, but he sure seems to have been inspired by them. Some of his most recent looks have been described as military.

    Designing accessories

    Dries Van Noten’s peplum pants may have been the talk of Paris during Fashion Week this spring, but one suspects that his shades, which have also been generating a lot of buzz, may outperform the peplum pants at the cash register.

    Designing special lines for big-name retailers

    Consuelo Castiglioni of Italian fashion house Marni recently designed a capsule wardrobe for Swedish clothing giant, H&M. A capsule collection is a small number of pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched.

    In so doing, Marni is following in the footsteps of such designers as Walter Van Beirendonck (who, coincidentally, went to the same Antwerp fashion academy as Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, another acclaimed Belgian designer. More about Demeulemeester below!)

    Like Castiglioni of Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester’s co-alumnus, Walter Van Beirendonck designs a line of clothing for a retail chain, Belgium’s JBC.

    Unlike Castiglioni of Marni, though, Van Beirendonck’s lower-end line is for children.

    Designing special lines for& websites?

    Ann Demeulemeester, along with Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and several other young co-alumnni of the same influential Antwerp fashion school, broke onto the fashion scene by driving a truck filled with samples to London Fashion Week. Leave it to her to find a new way to distinguish herself in the fashion world.

    In November 2011, Ann Demeulemeester released a four-piece capsule collection for sale online only.

    An all-black unisex collection for Christmas time? How very Ann Demeulemeester!

    Having their own shop

    Ann Demeulemeester has famously refused to work for any of the major fashion houses that have reportedly offered her a job. She has been running her own shop in Antwerp for well over a decade now.

    Another purely Ann Demeulemeester specialty?

    This designer prefers not to advertise, relying on word of mouth alone.

    It seems that in today’s economy even haute couture designers must be creative about how it is that they make money. Because man, it would seem, can not live by peplum pants alone. Marni and Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Walter Van Beirendonck, are all examples of labels and designers with an eye to new opportunities in a tough market.

    Having jewelries in the wardrobe that are up to the fashion is a must for most women. Fashion jewelry can be of two types, that are less expensive than the real thing but looks as good and then there is jewelry that makes a fashion statement. However, a female do have the cravings for the both varieties. A wholesale fashion jewelry shop can offer you to choose a few different colors ranging from neutrals beige, white, gold, tan, silver, and black to more upbeat colors such as red, blue, pink, green, and purple to add a bit of fun to your outfits.

    You can often buy many pieces of fashion jewelry to fit any season or to match any type of attire when you are purchasing fashion jewelry on wholesale shops for a less expensive price. Even you can simply tuck them away if they go out of style hence the cost being fairly cheap. Designer jewelry can be often purchased in different types such as plastic or metal which can be bought in earrings, necklaces, bracelets, lockets, ankle bracelets, and broaches which of all these pieces can enhance and complete a beautiful outfit. With the right piece of jewelry you can pull it all together in spite of the style you are going for, such as classic, elegant, business, or casual.

    It is wise to buy accessories that will go with the majority of your wardrobe and maybe a special piece or two for your dressier outfits if you are much particular about your budget. And this will save your money in the fullness of time since you can use your new jewels to mix and match with your entire wardrobe and thereby can avoid paying for a new piece for each outfit. Majority of the people prefer simple chains, hoop earrings, elegant charm bracelets, and a selection of other similar pieces which are perfect for any wardrobe, but it will be elating to choose a few different colors ranging from neutrals beige, white, gold, tan, silver, and black to more upbeat colors such as red, blue, pink, green, and purple to add a bit of fun to your outfits.

    You can go for fashion jewelry with gems and stones for more classy pieces of in them instead of being replica. Though they are more expensive than other accessories, they can definitely bring a smile to your face. It will be thrilling to buy a new piece of jewelry to add to your wardrobe especially when you receive it as a token of love. With proper care of your jewelry you will have it safe for a long time and can make use of them whenever they come back into style again.

    Classic wholesale fashion jewelry often includes things such as pearls, semi-precious stones, diamonds, rhinestones, gems, and many other well liked stones and these pieces can range accordingly depending on how much you want to spend.

    The fashion industry is big business and there will always be a wealth of potential designers and models desperately trying to get their foot in the door. In such a major industry it goes without saying that the competition is fierce and many will get left at the wayside. However, for those truly willing to apply themselves and ride a little luck it’s always going to be possible to make it. Of course for the fashion industry there are a few prerequisites and some things you can do to boost your chances.

    Outgoing Personality

    Flamboyant may be a better word for this as many of the biggest and most popular designers out there are renoun for this. You need to be confident to get anywhere in the fashion industry. It could of course be said that you need confidence to get ahead in any industry, but for the fashion industry it counts doubly. If you want to get yourself employed or get noticed you have to exude confidence and not be afraid to make yourself heard.

    Ambition

    Similarly to being outgoing you have to be fearlessly ambitious. Take advantage of any opportunity to get ahead and don’t be afraid to step on anyone’s toes. It might seem callous but the fashion industry is a brutal one, so don’t take any prisoners. When applying for a position, don’t be timid. Let them know what you’re willing to do to get ahead. If an employer thinks your ambitious then they’ll be more likely to give you the opportunity to prove it. Don’t be humble, but also don’t be arrogant. If you didn’t think you where capable you wouldn’t be trying in the first place.

    An Eye for Style

    This is obviously the first vital thing that a fashion designer needs in their arsenal. This isn’t something you can just learn but immersing yourself in fashion can really help to hone your understanding if you have that initial creativity. From Wille to Dolce & Gabbana you should know about it. Fashion ranges greatly from the stick thin catwalk to plus size clothes, so be aware of a range of styles. Fashion is always about the next big thing so if you know that you can bring this then let any potential employer knows about it.

    Experience

    A little experience can go a long way, even if it’s just part time working in a designer store. Working in related jobs might not be your intended end but can be a means to an end. This shows direction and will be taken into account in an interview. It will never do you any harm to have a little experience to back up your CV.

    Right now kids all over North America are dreaming about becoming fashion designers but thinking that it wont be possible for them since they dont live in the fashion haven, Paris. Although it is true that some designers, like Amercian Rick Owens, prefer to decamp to Paris, others, notably Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester have resisted the siren call of Paris without hurting their credibility or sales.
    By so doing, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester may be singlehandedly be preserving the garment trade in their native Belgium.
    Dries Van Noten
    Designer Dries Van Noten has famously resisted moving to a fashion centre such as Paris. He reportedly cherishes the anonymous lifestyle that remaining in his native Belgium affords him.
    Besides, life at home in Belgium offers Dries Van Noten and his partner Patrick Vangheluwe other perks. Their six-acre home on the outskirts of Antwerp lets the designer indulge in his other love: gardening.
    Ann Demeulemeester
    Bringing a little bit of France home to Belgium
    Ann Demeulemeester had one of the most famous first seasons in fashion when she and fellow students from Antwerps Royal Academy, including Dries Van Noten, set up a little stand outside during Londons 1987 Fashion Week. Within minutes, Barneys had discovered them and placed an order.
    Ann Demeulemeester seemed poised to make it big, but she was already determined to stay in Belgium.
    In an interview with Doingbird magazine, Ann Demeulemeester tells journalist Sarah Mower, By the nineties I was getting all kinds of offers, and I always said no. I was not interested in working in Italy or anything else. I guess I come from a normal Flemish family, from a Catholic education, with all the normal rules in life.
    In fact, Ann Demeulemeester and partner Patrick (who have been together since they were sixteen), had already bought the home in which they intended to raise their family (the couple has one son). She had fallen in love with it at first sight. Only afterwards did she realize that it was the only building in Belgium to have been designed by Paris-based architect Le Corbusier.
    In the same interview with Doingbird magazine, Ann Demeulemeester talks about the difficulties of manufacturing high-quality clothes on a largish scale in Belgium. She explains that the only remaining manufacturing facilities are there to service her and former classmate, Dries Van Noten: Now they exist because of me and Dries.
    By making a different choice from Rick Owens, these two Belgian designers are sending a message to aspiring fashion designers around the world that fashion can be cultivated anywhere in the world, not just in the fashion capital of Paris.

    Reading offers several benefits. And gaining significant knowledge from the materials that we read is definitely one of its most common advantages. Depending on the materials on hand, we gain knowledge that we can use in our daily lives.

    Despite of the advancement in technology, many people still hunt for good books and printed magazines to read. There are others who pick their reading materials based on interest while others are forced to read as required by their job. Individuals who are fashion-inclined usually go for beauty and fashion magazines. Reading such types of magazines simply enables them to be updated on the latest in the fashion world.

    Nevertheless, some people who read fashion and beauty magazines are not all fashionistas and do not have jobs related to fashion. These individuals are just looking for products and tips that they can use and apply to improve their looks and personalities. They normally go to advice corners and read experts opinions on new beauty products that are out in the market. A huge percentage of them is also stuck on sections that features gossips, lifestyle and get ups of their favorite celebrities as well as on spaces that have stories and lessons that will help on boosting their morale and leveling up their self esteem and self-confidence.

    While many people believed they beauty and fashion magazines are just for womens eye, more and more men are now also making their way to catch up with fashion by reading such materials. Most magazines also have corners for them – providing them with relationship and sexual tips as well as pieces of advice on looks improvement.

    Other studies also shows that reading magazines about fashion and beauty is classified as one luxurious way in satisfying one persons crave of becoming a trendsetter. Most magazines with these topics are available for expensive subscriptions which claim that they offer more substantial information. Nevertheless, experts advice is to find a subscription that suits ones personality and budget. Doing some experimentation like buying few issues from magazine stands is one of the best things to do before getting a regular subscription.

    Latest fashion is not for everybody. More often than not, it is worthier to show the uniqueness in ourselves and set our own trend. Such magazines are great guides and their content should not replace our whole being. Remember that how we look and treat ourselves is more important.
