1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ^ Raf archive is not going to happen.


    Would be cool to use the opportunity to bring in (smaller) labels with less visibility which could also gain something from this, or established labels that aren't easily available online. Probably doesn't make sense money wise and would be difficult logistically but it'd be more interesting/rewarding than simply taking SF-hype darlings already widely available everywhere else.

    Thing is about smaller labels even samples are sold at retail, I know of a few smaller brands/designers that id be interested to see. Petar Petrov, Christian L'enfant Roi, Ute Ploeir because the production is at a smaller rate even with their in-house fabrics it'd be difficult to have them at a price that'd be viable for a large majority of the forum members. But I would definitely be open to smaller brands/labels.

    Is Eric Glennie still among us ?





    True. Although I imagine the visibility and customer base offered by the forum could be an attractive selling point, especially combined with presales for future collections.

    yeah la guy should give us at least some sort of criteria or every designer ever will be on this list before the sun sets

    how did viberg and geller happen? just because there was enough forum interest and the partnership felt natural?

    Our principle is to build on and amplify forum interests, both in our editorial, and retail, strategy. We are the eyes and hands of the community. Yes, both Robert Geller and Viberg happened because there was enough interest, and the partnership felt natural. We are talking to a handful of other brands, and are in agreement in principal, and hashing out the details, to make these things happen, but obviously, until they do, I'm not going to blurt out names. We are not conventional retail, but complementary to conventional retail, and the way we do things doesn't tread on retailer's toes. There have been a few good examples of this working really well in womenswear, but we are obviously not nearly as well capitalized. As usual, we do things in the trenches.

    No criteria, other than that you'd be interested in buying stuff from the designers. It would be nice to hear whether you'd be interested in sample sales, presales, or both, though.

    What's lncc's ebay id again?


    Just to clarify, does "sample sale" cover "stuff that didn't sell last season" or just literal sample ("non-production"?) items?
    And does presale, obv. full-price, necessitate a runway show or something like that? I don't mean to imply one exclusive to SF, but is this about picking desired items out of a presentation of looks, or is it more simply buying before seeing as in the Viberg instance?

    Gotcha! I'd guess most SWDers' wallets would benefit from more sample sales, but as sipang said above, presales would work well with brands that are difficult to find online. What brands are more likely than others to have samples lying around?

    Now that I think of it, a Siki Im presale would be pretty sweet. We've talked about how fewer and fewer online stockists carry him.
