"Ad hoc" is latin and means "for this particular purpose". It's generally used to describe any custom solution in any field, so it's not fashion specific.

Taille, the French word for "size" or "waist" also means "cut with precision;"

tear sheet...what does it mean exactly?

I did a search for the word and no match was found. Please forgive me if this has already been answered.



Thanks for any input.

a tear sheet is something you've taken (ripped out) from a magazine or newspaper that shows your proof of publication. For example, if you styled an editorial for a magazine, you can take it out of the magazine it was in and put it in your portfolio or give to a publisher, or if you wrote an article in a newspaper, you can cut the clipping out...etc...

^ Capsule collecton = a small, focused collection

At least that's the way I interpret it...

What does flagship mean? As in, say, "Prada has opened its first flagship store."

It's like their Main, biggest and most important boutique. Like there might be smaller ones that don't carry the whole line, but the flagship should have the most selection, and generally be in the must desirable location.

That's my understanding

what exactly is a designer's showroom, as opposed to their store?

is a showroom a place where all the clothes are on display for buyers to look at them? and if so does that mean they are not for sale? is entrance restricted only to buyers or open to the public?
