Hi Everyone:

For years I have been enthusiastic about the power of ecommerce. That passion, coupled with an accomplished sense of fashion and a variety of academic and professional experiences, particularly in information technology, has motivated me to design and develop my very own online apparel retailer.

Do you guys think the online market for brands like: CDG, W+H, A.P.C., Acne, Robert Geller, Filson, Rag and Bone, Opening Ceremony, Ricks Owens is saturated?

Loaded question, but what is involved in sourcing these brands in an online store? Moreover, how do I get them to sell their product at my store?

Anyone have any tips as to how I can negotiate/ attract market share to my online store? i.e. how I can make my store unique from the other out there?

And lastly, is this idea viable?

In advance, thank you very much for any help.
