    Please Help Me With My Homework / Research / Survey

    For one of my classes I have to write a 5,000-6,000 page report on a topic of my choice. I have decided to write about how my College (which is very traditional aka Business, Arts and Sciences, Criminal Justice, etc) should offer a Fashion Marketing class. In this paper I have to address background on the fashion industry and how and why this is a lucrative professional choice that is attracting more and more students into the field... Any suggestions?

    FAO Fashion designers and bloggers

    Hi Fashion designers and bloggers,

    I am doing some research regarding the process of having a photo-shoot done with a photographer and would love some feedback on the following:

    1. How do you find the process of setting up for a photo shoot? IE. Finding models, sourcing the location etc… Would you like the photographer’s input and advice on this?
    2. How do you find the process and interaction between you and the photographer? IE. Image selection process
    3. What areas would you like your photographer to improve on? IE. Making it easier to access images, making the selection process quicker?
    4. What 3 things do you find a struggle when organizing a photo shoot to when having the final images?
    5. What 3 things do you enjoy when organizing a photo shoot to when having the final images?


    I would really appreciate any advice given. Thank you for taking the time to answer.

    I was a stylist who mainly worked in print with various photographers in the Los Angeles area. I can comment a bit on this topic ... about how it usually works. I can't comment on what a client likes and doesn't like, except what I have seen them discuss.

    Advance planning: Usually the photographer "organizes" the shoot ... not the client. The client organizes the products or items they want to have shot. Unless the client has a preference, the photographer usually selects the wardrobe/fashion stylist and the hair/makeup artist that will be used. Also, the photographer works with the client to select models from a local agency and sometimes works with the client to select a location. If it is catalog work, the photographer's studio is all that is needed. Back drops are selected from what the photographer has and props, if any, are sourced by anyone ... the client, the photographer, the stylist.

    It should be team work, with the photographer leading the team. But ... the photographer is pretty much at the mercy of the client, if the client want's to be in charge. The client is paying ... so it's his money. The photographer was hired to produce what he usually does ... so it's his vision. A delicate dance, to say the least.


    Therefore, the most important thing, I think (and something you did not mention) is: who is in charge? If the photographer and the client struggle for power on set, it totally disrupts the work and upsets the crew and most importantly, the models, who must be able to deliver their best work..

    Almost all clients want to be there at the shoot, and they are entitled to be there. Some will allow the photographer to do his thing, but many will not. So ... this needs to be worked out in detail ... in advance, with everyone agreeing who is going to be responsible for each detail. And who will direct the models and the crew.



    Most of the time, the photog directs his own assistants, and the client will want to direct models and the stylists. But ... taking full charge, the client will loose the photographer's vision and the results may be mediocre. So, in the best situation, I think , is to have a collaboration between the two. Photog in charge of and directing the models and team, but with permission from the client if he wants to change anything substantially. It's up to the photog to convince the client that the changes will make it better.


    The client would be given "proofs" of all of the shots taken (there would be many of each outfit) and would be tasked with selecting his/her choices. The photographer would then do "post" photoshopping .... fixing color, cleaning up the photo, etc. to get it ready for the client. What I do know, is that the client usually wants to look at the photos while the shoot is in progress, and also immediately after the shoot. Clients would love to have proofs in hand, that day. Some photogs are able to deliver this fast ... some, not so fast. The photog must advise the client when and how many proofs they may expect ... in advance, in writing. And it's important that he deliver when he says he will. Deadlines are very important to a client and any delays will damage his reputation.

    Hope this information helps some.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently a fashion design and marketing student in my final year, looking to find out more about people's awareness of and opinions concerning fashion subscription and rental boxes such as Rent the Runway, Frank and Oak, Stitch Fix and Le Tote in the US or Wear the Walk in the UK.

    If you've ever tried out a subscription / rental service for clothing, I'd love to hear about your experience.
    I'm really interested in this as I know it's a much more sustainable way to consume fashion, particularly with the rise of fast fashion, but there are a few barriers to people being interested in this kind of service and I'm looking at ways to overcome these.
    i.e. what would dissuade you from trying out a subscription service, or what would entice you?

    I also have a quick 5 minute survey here if anyone's willing to participate:
    Discovering the modern female consumer's attitudes towards rental/subscription wardrobes vs. emotional attachment to clothing.

    Thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to hearing your opinions!

    Hey I'm designing a shirt for school.
    I thought about some provocative print: „child who survived“.
    You think its cool and understandable or not?
    I wanted to ask you guys about your honest opinion and also what it could mean for you?

    Thank you so much for your honest answer!

    I think that it is accurate. School is all about surviving bullying and drama.

    Hi All :D

    I'm currently researching both womenswear and menswear fashion trends from the 1940s. I'm new to this type of research - but it's been apparent to me from the initial beginnings of my research that the Edwardian style (in womenswear, has some influence in the 1940s fashion for women. And likewise, the 1970s fashion trends, also seems to have trends, that I'm seeing from the 1940s.

    Can anyone assist me with further information?

    Many thanks

    Hello everyone.

    I am M.Sc. Fashion and Textile Design student, and currently working as assistant designer.
    Next semester, I'll publish an academic article which's being performed for my thesis, and in this regard I'm doing some research, and prepared a mini survey according to concepts of 'Sustainability' and 'Re-cycled Fashion'.

    I would like to reach more people around the world, to understand the people's behavior and the reasons of purchasing a clothing item and the knowledge of the textile industry on the environment and human health.

    Thank you all for taking time and I would appreciated very much if you could participate to my study and fill the questionarre.
    Please find the survey's link below.

    Regards.

    Dear Community,

    My name is Laura and I am currently writing my bachelor thesis about the introduction of a new service in the personal luxury goods industry. In this context I am conducting a survey.

    In my circle of friends and acquaintances, only a few are among buyers of luxury goods.
    Therefore, it would mean a lot to me if you could participate in the survey (English version)
    https://www.soscisurvey.de/servicemodelluxury/

    Thank you so much for your support! Laura
    :-)

    Hi!

    My name is Kevin. I'm a fashion student from Mexico City and I'm currently working on my final dissertation. The topic I chose is the eternal debate: Is fashion an art? For that, I chose Alexander McQueen as my research subject, thanks to his great ideas. He came to change the game.

    To complete mi research, I designed I survey to gather the opinions of the people who are part of the fashion community around the world. I'd be so glad if you could help me answering a few questions about what's art, fashion and about Alexander.

    About Art and Fashion: Alexander McQueen

    Thank you so much! :D
