Did you know that only 1 in 160,000 designers 'make it' in the fashion industry?

Since we launched Mylinego, Inc and Bootstrapfashion.com, thousands of aspiring and indie designers have approached us about recommending a fashion business course or a mentoring program focusing on how to start and build a successful fashion business.
We love the Avant Pop direction that trend reporting agency, Fashion Snoops projected for the Spring/Summer 2015. This theme takes you back to the early 60's, when artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist and Claes Oldenburg were revolutionizing the world of art.
When it comes to prints for Spring/Summer 2014 the updated florals feel fresh, revived and renewed, combining delicate blooms with modern artistic interpretations that have a painterly feel and range from large scale artistic foliage to abstract and impressionistic feel.
Modern Tribes theme is a contemporary interpretation of tribal prints from all over the world, from Amazonian forest pygmies to African tribes people or Papuasian natives. The naïf prints and patterns served as an inspiration for the season and as a remainder of the art of nature.
A retrospective sense of summer emanates from the beautiful inspiration of unusual floral motifs. You will surely be ahead of the curve, by combining high contrast prints with clashing color schemes. Decorate simple silhouettes with busy floral arrangements, creative print mixes and fierce bold outlined florals.
We are seeing the presence of Eastern European prints and embellishments on several runway shows for an upcoming season. One of the favorites is the vision of VERONICA ETRO for the Fall of 2014/15 where she travelled to Russia and the nearby countries and brought out the flavors of bohemian chic beyond the paisley prints.
The designer du jour at John Galliano, Bill Gaytten’s latest collection was a muted, artistically inclined affair.
The focus was on texture play, with light, flowing velvet, fur-trimmed wool coats and sweaters; and feather-embellished accessories. Adding luxurious touches to the collection where metallic accents and lamé tops and dresses.
