Hello! This is Katelyn Finn, I'll be blogging for the Chicago Fashion Incubator a bit this summer!
With social media invading our thoughts, and every answer to every question imaginable at our internet capable finger tips, I have to beg the question: how does a fashion designer take advantage of this online marketplace?
As I was writing my daily submission....POW! The idea was right under my nose (literally and figuratively) : a blog would serve as the perfect vehicle to both establish and further promote an emerging designer with his or her line. Agreeing with me on this point is Jane Hamill, a Chicago fashion professional herself. She is the founder of Jane Hamill Consulting which is a firm that works with fashion designer companies on the business side of things. On her own blog, Jane spotlighted the DOs and DON'Ts of the operational management of a fashion design blog written by Erika Gimbel, a Chicago freelance writer. Take care to study these helpful tips, my fashion forward readers!
