Why Isn't Anyone Talking About the Most Frightening Part of Amazon Handmade?

Why Isn't Anyone Talking About the Most Frightening Part of Amazon Handmade? | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
What's stopping Amazon from using this platform to track the newest trending products by emerging artisans and designers, as they've done to other sellers in the past?
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Artisans do not understand the value in what they offer.  So let me ask this. What's stopping Etsy from selling that same info to large businesses.  Heck  many manufacturers already scrape Etsy  offering  the items for fraction of the price, many times using the  images from the artist themselves. YET  Amazon added handmade by  watching trends. Sure that deep data is invaluable  and i suspect that the truth is, that the data is some how  already  being made available. 

What has bothered me and  continues to bother me is the stipulation that the  items must be "made by hand", is NOT reflected in the prices.  Another is that  "Made by hand" cannot be "factory" done...  the only way  handmade can become possible at these prices  is through the development of production procedures! 

All in all artisan should test  Amazon handmade and adjust to suit their needs... but as the article says... please set up your own website first!

I recommend a self hosted Wordpress.  and I am please with my host www.Dreamhost.com (use "NYukCO") for a discount

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Designing Diversity - It not just black and white so how many specific type of factors are there- Within the  program I'm designing this is a common point of discussion.  I actually have businesses specify their various vested Interest parties. Seldom though do we discuss the advantages of structuring their companies with diverse talent or diversity in other aspects.

Where’s the focus, fashion? | A global discussion on the Business of Fashion From Trinidad, With Style

Where’s the focus, fashion? | A global discussion on the Business of Fashion From Trinidad, With Style | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

"Of course there is a downside to everything. While the idea is encouraging, and the opportunity is great (designers attended this event free of charge) who exactly are “the buyers”? The Shop, Exhibit A and NMFV come to mind. That can’t be all though, right? Three shops that mostly operate on a consignment basis? (NMFV does some wholesale buying, but I wasn’t able to meet anyone anyway so we don’t count). No designer that I have spoken to has said that they met with significant buyers. It would have been nice to see some regional or international department store reps present. I think that is what the designers were expecting as well. Yet, if say Macy’s was there and needed 500 pieces of a particular style in a week, which Trinidad based designer could fulfill such an order?

Bonnie Sandy's insight:
This is a global issue - discussed in this blog post http://blog.nomorefashionvictims.com/wheres-the-focus-fashion/ there are some core types of Fashion events a design label would encounter and need to consider engaging in.
The fashion tech event, conference, summit and/or Hack.I have attended these and frankly I love hacks but their were not teh right mix of fashion, bsuienss and tech... The fashion tech conferences today tend to be skewed towards luxury retail brands and so the info just does not apply. Most of the audience usually cannot even follow the discussions. There is a lot of opportunity there
FASHION SOURCING - Here designer go to find resources and helps--- they cannot be "showing or selling to consumers' or for that matter buyers' they are there to learn and absorb, to shop their suppliers. Too many organizers take only their own concerns and needs into account and the designers are a line item in their budget If you're doing a Fashion Business conference there is not room for anything else...  Fashion as Market - Trade events where fashion designers get to present BUYERS and only buyers - samples are ahead of the current season with shipping immediate (stock required for future) When you are selling to trade you need to concentrate on Selling to trade... no tim e to be cute and social.
Fashion as EVENT - Ther eis a wealth of opportunity to create engaing events! This includes various consumer focused trade endeavors including Vending & Popups as consumer shows... Items are current and priced to move... On teh Down side they train consumers to depend on sales rather than regularly shop your store.. They are needed but need to be redesigned.
Fashion as conversation - Story telling - Think Fashion week, Fashion Film, Where the DESIGNERS present their vison and statement... They choose their models , runway etc... it can also be installaion etc
Fashion as Entertainment where patrons pay to be entertained - The designers do not organize, but are TALENDT and shoudl be paid... hint if there is a door price and a billing of "Fashion" then designers are talent! PAY THEM.. I have participated in my share of shows and they are necessary at a certain point to help develop your style and voice. However They cost...

There is a lot of work BEFORE presenting a trade conference. Trade should NOT be a charitable project there is a conflict of interest... if you want a charity event throw a show or auction...
I am presently in discussion to create a couple of such fashion related conferences and trade events.
The first trade event I ever organized, was in Trinidad circa 1987/88 and I was a little over 20 but there were buyers (Courtesy IDC) I remember a buyer from Canada wanting my 2 piece dye extracted suits... I had no idea what to expect or how to navigate. I was so happy that I was scheduled to leave for Fashion Institute shorthly after.
Today I have attended, partcipated organized several fashion related business events including a trade show sponsored by Macy's. We got several businesses in to see their buyers the first year and a couple more the second. FYI, if Macy's selects your product there is a process that takes months, you need to be prepped to be on the floors and have financial backing to cover your space and opportuniyt... Then there is uality control sizing and other compliance issues as well as global shipping challenges. It's not only the ability to deliver but a solid business plan and finacial backing. Macy's actually has a prep program for their suppliers.

#FashionCapitals - coming to NY check out Global Fashion Capital at the FIT June 2 – November 14, 2015 | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

The past ten years have seen a phenomenal rise in the number of cities worldwide that host fashion weeks. Paris, New York, Milan, and London are currently the four leading fashion capitals, but other cities with emerging fashion scenes are beginning to challenge that exclusivity. Governments seeking to “re-brand” their cities as centers of creativity and innovation acknowledge the power of fashion to elevate an international profile.

The success of a fashion city depends upon a delicate balance of economic, social, and cultural factors. A single week of spectacular runway presentations does not guarantee acceptance by fashion buyers and the international press. Yet with so many cities vying to become the fifth major fashion capital, a new, polycentric fashion

Simply put the fashion items offered products are well designed for Fit, Fashion and functionailty and  that should be the only reason you need to purchase.   The items in these pre sale intros are at a steal, (designers use sweat equaity to cut cost)  and one time offers.  However  Please scroll down to read about WHY you should support! 

 

New Youk has it's share of Fashion incubators and accelerators, few allow for or cater to the organic Cottage industry that exist.  We chose to start as a pre-stratup lab project  so that we can do what we do best... custom design products that fit our consumers needs. In this case our consumers are our design colleagues  in  less than 3 months we have made significant progress and can stand toe to toe with others well funded projects. However  to move forward we require non eguity funding.  So we tappedin to what we do best design great product, service sand merchandise and offer it as a pre-sale startup to our network! ...

Google's:

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Google wants data. It can't get enough of the stuff. The more data, the better. In fact, three of the top-10 free apps on Apple's iTunes App Store are from Google. Zero of them are from Apple.
