An interesting thing happened after I published If I were to produce a line. From the many comments and suggestions I received, I found that other people wanted to post their conceptualized lines in order to solicit feedback from visitors too. Accordingly, I started a new thread in the discussion forum where people could let others “kick the tires” of their concepts. Here is one such entry from Danielle of Final Fashion:
If you’ve yet to launch your line or are thinking of launching a new line, please consider adding your own thread. I think you’ll be very surprised by the support and solutions that others can offer you. If you have problems sourcing certain products or fabrics, people will offer their resources which will dramatically increase the viability of your venture. I realize that subjecting yourself to a line review from a jury of your peers can be intimidating but I think you have more to gain from the experience than not.
