Hey guys, I figure this is relevant to the thread, and I'd like to tell you all what you helped to kick off in my life...
For the most part, when stuff doesn't fit my roommate (it always doesn't fit me XD) we bay it, but we also started selling stuff on our campus via a Facebook group.
Anyways, about two months ago, we got a message from the student government. They asked us to run a collection for their annual fashion show as a featured retailer.There are like half a dozen "boutique" secondhand stores (read: victims) nearby that normally supply clothing for the collections, and they wanted to add us to the mix. Naturally, we were like "When the hell else would we get a chance to do this?" So we said yes, providing that we were dressing our own people. Anyways, we got the green light and it's happening.
Last year, the showing for the guys was exactly what you'd expect from these stores, which is, to say, abysmal.
We're lining up ten thrift fits to educate them a little bit :)
We can't tailor everything, but we've got enough to work with (and we handpicked the models based on eyeballing their sizes), that I think we stand a great chance of putting together something really cool.
We finally get started tomorrow. Models are coming in for their first fittings. So excited. I'll keep you all updated!
Anyways, this is mostly due to all of the excellent advice I've gotten here. Thanks guys!
