When it comes to being a fashionista, we all know that maintaining style and fabulousness involves money. We all seek unique pieces, and most of the time we convince ourselves that it’s well worth the money. One would say, “$200 rainboots? Yeah, it’ll rain for sure. I need this.” With the economy the way it is these days, we are all rationalizing our budgets and pinching our pennies. What if there was an alternative to all of this? What if you could buy yourself a high quality, one-of-a-kind piece of clothing piece that’s affordable? You must think I’m bluffing! But look no further, I just found the site. An up and coming business called Sketch Street, this online store is where you can submit fashion sketches and have them come to real life! Based in London and recognized worldwide, Sketch Street is a new kind of style that us fashionista’s would love. With the wonderful opportunity of chatting with the founders of Sketch Street, check out this profile feature on the company and the owners, Widelia Liu and Anthony Chan!
Admit it, we all love fashion magazines. Something about flipping through those glossy pictures and looking through incredible fashion finds just brightens up our day and makes time go by faster. But then there’s a problem. No, more than just one. You see something amazing listed, but then you realize it costs $25,000. You spot something affordable, but you don’t know if it’s available in all stores, select stores, or whether or not you can just get it online. Oh, and there’s also the issue that magazines are not issued very often. That’s where a blogazine comes in. The Pleat, started by Julie Chen, Samara D’auria, Desiree Marr and Tiffanie Graham, is a site that covers all aspects you’d want to know about fashion: What’s hot now? Where can we get these items at an affordable price? What celebrity looks are they digging? What designers should we be on the lookout for? What are some deals we should take advantage of? The best part is that it’s updated often, so you’ll always know the latest information.
We got a chance to get the inside scoop from Julie Chen, co-founder and managing editor of The Pleat, to get some fashion advice and learn more about this exciting new website you should all be following!
