So Black Dress 2012 is looking at-  the present state of Black Fashion! Finding  designers though is TOUGH! Designers are a  social group,  we know each  other and talk  shop!Yet Getting  Them To  Market together is a challenge!

Every designer I  know have at least  1-2000 on their list  (whether or not they have migrated that list to  social media)! Imagine if  each designer shared the other designer info .. My  designer list is well over  300 so imagine 300 sharing  to 1000 persons that  300000 even if only   10 % reach  is achieved that still a reach of 30000 individuals!

During February to commemorate Black history Month, NYFW and Social Media Week  New York . I  decided to take to the web  to find Black  Fashion Designers… It’s part of Black Dress 2012!  Deciding how to proceed was difficult I opted to see them as today’s consumers would by “googling” them and visiting their web presence… if one existed… A screen shot is presented with …  Next is to  list them individually  with some background info and link to there sites!

I also observed some friends at the wifi  use their IPads and Mobiles to find and Navigate  designer sites…  YIKES!  Folks FLASH and Mobile do not mix! also most  sites were not optimized search  especially  google product search!

Over the course of the year I hope  to interview as many as these designers as possible.. There will be video and gallery  presentations…  and eventually  a designr’s review!

This is a Lot of work but  by the end I hope to have a comprehensive list of deigners and to  be better acquainted with  what makes them  unique!

Raison D’Etre

Black  History Month, New York Fashion Week , Valentine’s day  and Social Media Week New York  – all collided the week  of  February 12-17th 20012 , so for Black Dress 2012 I chose to look at Black  Fashion Designers and their web presence, rather that  read the post mortem on the “lack’ of  a Black presence… they usually  simply count models anyway.  I started with a Google search but had to augment with my social network, since most designers could not be “found”, connecting to and rediscovering my design colleagues.  I took a screen shot of each site  checked their social media presence. Not easy since  there is not a valid list per say that simply points to these designers.

 

Designers also  do not link to or connect to each other. Many had only  flash websites, not accessible by  mobile. It was a lot of work .

As for individual e-commerce capabilities… check each website. or select however I like  boutique shopping in a cluster one location with access to  all my faves. Add you name to  this VIP list

Next week I will post the galleries  from those whose images I have from my collection on  www.brooklynFashionGallery.com    over the  next few months will be augmented with a review of the designer’s and label the deadline April May 2012… designers submit your info here…

 

WHY… as a design student I searched the shelves of FIT, library and spent a LOT of time in the costume lab… hoping to  find black designers. I am stopped all the time by peoplewho recognize me in Brooklyn and asked for specific colleagues.  My emails same thing. BEFORE They SHOP you they need to FIND you.
