Startup Projects Background

Overview

i have an idea for a kids fashion line for 8 to 16 year old girls. Kids can send in their own designs via my website and these will be voted on by site visitors. The winning designs get a prize (ipad etc) and then these are converted by our in house designers to a clothing range. i have the design team ready to accept these designs and also sourced a manufacturer. Marketing through social media and through youth related organizations specifically targeted at girls from the 8 to 16 year old range.

Thats a really good idea. Do you already have the domain name? If you do I would start putting out backlinks because a lot of good idea’s fail as they don’t get the traffic required. Advertising on social networking is good, but be careful the rules are that you have to be over 13 to go on Facebook. I know everyone does go on it younger but advertising for people below the age limit might annoy them. Also be prepared to put in a lot of hours checking every designs suitability! Overall a good idea.

It’s got potential, but you are going to have to spend a long time going through a lot of terrible ideas. Where are the clothes going to be sold?

Its a good idea, but you will have to pay a lot on advertising aswell as using social networking etc. Because if you have to hire an in house design team they will need paying so you will need to start earning money very quickly.

i would sell online at first and keep it simple with regard to the line of clothes available. I can see what you mean about going through some terrible idea but the idea is for the website visitors to vote on them so that will at least cut down some of the work. Advertising wise I will aim at school mags like Primary Times and alslo as I said before Facebook etc. I understand what you say about kids not being allowed on facebook but I will aim towards their parents.

You would have to see the ideas before they were put to the vote though, because if your aiming at site at children you will get the usual idiots that will upload indecent images onto the clothes for a laugh. So unfortunately you will have to go through them all. However apart from a few little issues I think it is a good idea and if you have a good advertising budget that will really help. When you launch your site send me the link and we will tweet it, try to get famous fashion designers to do the same. Good luck.

Thanks Gabriel for the encouragement. good to hear people like my idea. I actually thought of it one day while watching my 3 daughters drawing clothes on a fashion mag for kids. Look out for MayFane.com. MayFane is a twist on the Irish/Gaelic words mé féin which means me or my self.
