There?s an interesting article in the Boston Globe today that I feel compelled to point out to all of you in fashion design, ?How to start an art revolution; A manifesto for Boston ? What makes Boston both plausible and exciting as an alternative to the pressures and failings of New York ? is that it has all the elements to build something genuinely important ? and genuinely different. ?. Although there are minor differences from art, similar ideas are also true for fashion, especially for small and individual companies. If you wish, let?s talk about it at networking time at our meetup on Thursday ?Beginners in Clothing Design & Fashion Merchandising?.

There are still 3 spots left. However. You can only RSVP at the ?Fashion 2010? website. If you are not a member of that group, you must first join it. http://www.meetup.com/fashion2010/
Then you can RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/fashion2010/calendar/12742985/
Remember to start looking around for photo clips from magazines or print off from Internet fashion sites to bring to the meetup. Each of you bring something in the following three categories. This is a great learning experience for those who are seriously thinking about a business and customers.
1. At least one photo of a fashion clothing design you really love. If you have more than one then choose which is number one.
2. At least one photo of a fashion clothing design you hate. Again, if you have more than one then choose which is the worst.
3. A few photos that demonstrate what you believe will be successful trends. Right now top designers are showing Fall 2010 and stores are showing Spring 2010.
Let?s welcome new members:
JIM BRADY, Fashion photo shoots.
SHERA RAY, Fashion designer, attention to detail
We look forward to a great meetup.
Shirley, Assistant Organizer
