No kidding. I wonder if on top of the freebies, participating companies actually have to pay a product placement fee? I mean, how are they "selected" for this distinction? Perhaps EG can illuminate the process?
No, I did not have to pay a placement fee. Eric Glennie doesnt make clothes, I make history. My clothing line is very unique which separates me from other designers. I dont need to pay for a celebrity endorsement to separate myself from other designers to get noticed. My products and art speak for themselves. People wear my hats and ties because they like the style. I had a huge rap star tell me I would have to pay him to wear my products on the stage and I simply told him " I am the most innovative designer in the history of menswear and I dont pay anyone to wear my products and dont have to" . If you have to pay a person to wear your garb, then you seriously have to question if the company is a designer or a label. Like I said: I am confident I am the most innovative DESIGNER in the history of menswear and quite possibly the most innovative DESIGNER in American fashion. I have the brains, but I just dont have the money and connections to get off the ground. Also, New York and the CFDA ignore my emails so the center of the fashion world has no clue who I am.
