Welcome visitors from the New York Times

If you found me (Kathleen Fasanella) and Fashion-Incubator via the New York Times, welcome! And welcome even if you didn’t and just happened to fall in here somehow.

The purpose of Fashion-Incubator is speaking frankly about how to produce a line of sewn products. We do it all from soup to nuts. Not shake-n-bake cake-mix manufacturing at arm’s length but how to launch a fair trade and sustainable clothing line, even including the minutia of how to sew properly, wresting the best engineered methods from history. An affirmation of our mission, at least 50% of our visitors are from the world’s largest brands who use the material as a tool to do their jobs better. In addition to the 2,000 pages of material on this site, we also mentor and welcome anyone who cares to join our proprietary forum. Fashion-Incubator is considered to be the most valuable piece of internet real estate in its class.

Obligatory introduction dispensed with, a bit of context is required for one quote attributed to me in the NYT article Plus-Size Wars:

“We know pretty well what a size 6 woman will look like if she edges up to a 10; her bustline might increase an inch,” Fasanella said.

This should read:

…“We know pretty well what a size 6 woman will look like if she edges up to a 10; her bustline might increase an inch PER SIZE,” Fasanella said…

If you’re interested in learning more about the worsening of fit and sizing in ready to wear apparel over the past fifteen years, I love you already. Sit right here [pats sofa] and I’ll make you a cup of tea. While you’re waiting, catch up on why vanity sizing is a myth in addition to the many other articles I’ve written on fit and sizing.

Thanks for coming, I hope you’ll visit more frequently.
