It’s nolonger a message being pushed onto the public, but rather a two way conversation. Thisshift of power has filtered into the fashion industry and has become part of the shop-ping experience for consumers. Customers now want to get Social media has givenbrands a medium where they can take out the guess work and just ask them ‘What doyou want to wear?’ and ‘What do you want to buy?Now they are involved and have their say… ’ It’s now up to fashion brands to utilize thistwo-way flow of information and successfully cater to their customer base.What was the inspiration for a fashion based social networks site?The inspiration for Inspirare really was the social media revolution,n that we really wanted to close the gap between the designer and the consumer. Wealso recognized how difficult it was for emerging fashion designers to get their labels offthe ground. The outlay to sample, produce, promote and sell a collection is huge, and ittakes a long time for any money to come back into the business. It’s a big risk. By takingthese two sides of the equation and carefully weaving them together, we ended up withInspirare. The social media aspect of it lets consumers influence trends, and determinewhat’s available to buy online. Users can offer feedback to designers, allowing them tolearn directly from their market and evolve their brand.16 www.twdigitalads.com All Copyrights Reserved to TWDA © 2012

It started as a hobby and over the years it turned into a ca- reer. She became rapidly famous with her cute unique style and now is called as duclecandy the fashion guru.

Your idea of fun is going to outdoors concerts, or helping a cause you believe in Mostly B’s The 50s You love feminine clothing, pastel or bright colors, skirts, dresses, keds, bobby socks, pony tails, soft curls and oldies. You love movies like grease and 50s diners. In the 50s they wore full skirts, heart shaped blouses and learning how to cook, and care for your family was important for women.

Bell bottoms came into style and so did free flowing blouses with billowing sleeves. Platforms, over the knee leather boots as well as large hoop earrings and gold chains were apparent everywhere.
