Singapore Fashion Industry

...Despite brutal competition, Singapore’s fashion industry experiences a rebirth April 20, 2012 by Terence LEE It's a packed house at the retail launch of PARCO next NEXT's new labels on 14th April. Globalization has dealt local fashion labels a bad hand. It used to be that fashion designers in Singapore could fill a niche between mass market apparel from the department stores and expensive luxury brands. David Wang, vice president of the Textile & Fashion Federation (TaFf), lived in that era. As a local fashion pioneer in the 80′s, the runway for him to maneuver was much wider. Global brands like Topshop, Uniqlo, and H&M were not around to compete for the Singaporean’s fashion budget. But the times changed. “During my time, Singaporeans had pride in local brands. The good old days are gone. Now they look at price,” he says, “they’re very practical. If they look at a dress from a local designer that’s $399, they won’t support her. They’d rather go to H&M to pick up an entirely new wardrobe.” While there’s a lot of hullabaloo these days about the power of e-commerce as a powerful, superlative, enabler for startups, David cautions that the Internet’s low barrier of entry results in more competition. Some blogshops, for example, offer cutthroat prices for their items. In the face of such a brutal environment, PARCO next NEXT was started in 2010 to prop up the local fashion scene. It is a fashion incubator that picks promising fashion designers and puts...

... establishments which may be described as restaurants were known since the 11th century in Kaifeng, China's northern capital during the first half of the Song Dynasty (960–1279). With a population of over 1,000,000 people, a culture of hospitality and a paper currency, the city was ripe for the development of restaurants. Probably growing out of the tea houses and taverns that catered to travellers, Kaifeng's restaurants blossomed into an industry catering to locals as well as people from other regions of China.[2] Stephen H. West argues that there is a direct correlation between the growth of the restaurant businesses and institutions of theatrical stage drama, gambling and prostitution which served the burgeoning merchant middle class during the Song Dynasty.[3] Restaurants catered to different styles of cuisine, price brackets, and religious requirements. Even within a single restaurant much choice was available, and people ordered the entree they wanted from written menus.[2] An account from 1275 writes of Hangzhou, the capital city for the last half of the dynasty: "The people of Hangzhou are very difficult to please. Hundreds of orders are given on all sides: this person wants something hot, another something cold, a third something tepid, a fourth something chilled; one wants cooked food, another raw, another chooses roast, another grill."[4] The restaurants in Hangzhou also catered to many northern Chinese who had fled south from Kaifeng during the Jurchen invasion......

...The Fashion Industry and Self- Esteem The fashion industry has the biggest influence on people’s self- esteem. This industry affects just about everyone, whether they may be male, female, young or old the industry interacts and influences our lives everyday. Most people think of the fashion industry as a bunch of magazine editors, season photo shoots, and fashion shows, and retail stores but the industry is more than that. Inevitably everyone any anyone that buys clothes has been affected by the industry and how it’s marketed itself effectively enough to make consumers purchase clothing and accessories. The fashion industry appears to set a perfectionist impossible standard for the populace to reach; by doing this they are harming society in an unintentional manner. The apparel being designed and sold in stores in an imperfect world is causing not only self- esteem issues but health issues as well. The Fashion industry paves a way to a land of perfection and beauty; the industry doesn’t realize its path of self- destruction it leaves along the way. Almost all magazines use computer programs like Adobe Photoshop to edit images of celebrities and models to put on their covers and editorials to sell designers goods. Not even the most perfect of perfect models is actually this perfect, so magazine readers strive to look like the impossible. Readers all over the world are having their self-esteem brought down by the fashion industries portrait of what society......

Pierre Cardin – Fashion Designer Research

...Christhea Amanda Pierre Cardin – Fashion Designer Research Paper Intro to Fashion Pierre Cardin (born Pietro Cardin) was born to French parents in San Andrea da Barbara, a city near Venice, Italy on July 7, 1922. Italy and France definitely influenced his fashion aesthetic, the fact that he is a couturier has proved that his style was influenced by his parents’ background as well as his own (though he mostly lived in France, he lived in Italy for 23 years). He moved to Paris, France at the end of World War II in 1945 to study architecture. He worked in Paquin fashion house and later he left the Paquin house to work for the Schiaperelli fashion house. Later in his life he met Christian Berard and Jean Cocteau, Jean was considered to be a genius for his multiple talents as an artist; not only he was a director, he was also a poet, writer, set designer, and a painter. In this period of his life, Pierre made costumes for several movies like La Belle et la Bête, also known as Beauty and the Beast, in 1946. After his work in the costuming industry was well received, he worked for Christian Dior in 1947 where he helped design Dior’s “New Look”. New Look was designed to free women’s bodies from earlier fashion of masculinity in women’s garments due to World War II. This line emphasized women’s femininity by showcasing their curves. Pierre Cardin eventually left Dior to build his own fashion house in 1950 on Rue Richepanse in Paris. He began the career of his fashion...

... industry analysis we found out that there is a high level of new entrants because the industry does not require to invest large financial resources to be used in investing in the capital equipment and in the research and development. The new entrant is not threaten by the existing firm even though they already earned strong customer loyalties because there are so many effective ways to capture customers attention. They can market their service through the internet, sending pliers or inviting friends to come over to try the service for free or given a discount. In persuading distribution channels to access a new product, the new entrants often provide incentives in the form of price discount, promotions and cooperative advertising. Since the new entrants and the existing competitors are in the same industry, it is up to them to strategize in marketing the services. The key also is in finding the differing abilities and how to deal with the impact of industry forces. The government does not prohibit or limit new competitor from entering the industry. It is easy to get licensing requirement, access to raw materials, pollution standards and product testing regulation are not strongly regulated. There will be a little problem in the manpower like the cost of retraining employees, purchasing support equipment, enlisting technical assistance and redesigning products. In the economies of scale the unit cost of a product declines as the volume of services increases. As a new......

Is the Contemporary Uk Fashion Industry Sustainable?

... are currently being experienced in the UK fashion sector. For example, although the sector has been able to generate a number of opportunities for low skilled jobs, the wages are in most cases below the realistic minimum living wage for most workers. Natural fibres such as cotton have their sustainability challenges as cotton also takes up a larger agricultural land portion in the UK, land of which local people may use to grow their own food. This is particularly evidenced by the inability of many workers in the industry such as cotton producers to escape the cycles of poverty and achieve sustainable social or economic development . Similarly, there have also been growing concerns regarding the working hours as well as safety standards currently in use in many of the fashion factories and manufacturing firms across the country. True to the UK’s fashion industry, this industry has not been left behind in regard to immunity to labor issues as an outsourcing human rights violation industry. The lack of environmental and human labor regulations in the fashion industry in the United Kingdom has entirely given this industry as susceptibility in its reputation. The challenge of working conditions in the United Kingdom can be compared closely to the 1980s Nike Company’s harsh working conditions (Hethorn, 2015, p.178). In a close view, worker are the key aspect of company’s sustainability thus if fashion industry lacks better labor provision approach, attaining sustainability will......

Introduction to Fashion Industry

...What is fashion? Fashion is a term commonly used to describe a style of clothing worn by most of people of a country. A fashion usually remains popular for about 1-3 years and then is replaced by yet another fashion. Even though there are a lot of changes in fashion, most people do not easily except the changes. A clothing style may be introduced as a fashion, but its use becomes a custom after being handed down from generation to generation. A fashion that comes and goes is called a Fad. During the mid-1800's, a mass production of clothing was made fashionable and available to more people for lower prices. This encouraged more people to wear more stylish clothes which are why we are wearing what we are today. Clothing is made out of all types of material such as cotton, rayon, spandex, and polyester, and they are just a few used. Some clothing may even be made of 2 or more different types; this is known as “Blending." Clothing can be decorated or designed with all types of images and colors. The designs can either be embroidered onto the fabric, woven on to the fabric, silk screened, or ironed onto the fabric to create a desired look. Some images that have been used to enhance an article of clothing range from a simple design on front of a T shirt to a famous printing that has been woven into fabric creating a colorful piece of art that one can wear. Fashion is revealing. Clothes reveal what group’s people are in. In high school, groups have names: "Goths, skaters...
