Other things ive tried is giving free stuff out to boutiques and some magazine editiors. Ive been told to hire models to wear my stuff in clubs etc but does this really work?

Its hard work and i gave up everything to pursue this passion so if any of you have some good ideas on how i can get noticed please let me know!
Good afternoon, fashion designers can sell their garments online at

It's worth checking out. Click on the 'boutiques' tab all information is there.

Hope I'm not breaking any rules by suggesting this as I just wish to help designers!

I'm not sure where you are going with this request.

You did not clarify if you just want to sell a line the you already have in production to a big store ... or if you want to sell your line to boutiques. You didn't say if you are already in production or not, actually. Or ... you said that you want to submit "ideas" ... so maybe you are searching for someone to produce your line or hire you as a designer? So, it's hard for someone to talk about their own experience if you have not laid it all out.

But, here's a thread about the whole process of designing a line and getting it going ... and it also lists a bunch of other releated threads, so maybe you can find some information related to you specific situation in one of these:

Hope this helps.

On average, how much does PR cost annually? Especially amongst smaller agencies. I'm not really sure where to ask this question, but I believe it's worth asking.
