        Identify Concerns
1950’s clothing has made a tremendous come back into the
  2009 world of fashion. However, only high end retailers
    offer the vintage look that appeals to most young

             Fashion Design

               Set a Goal
Design an affordable line of 1950’s inspired clothing
      that can be sold at accessible retailers
                Fashion Design

2.   Study Demographics and Mass Appeal
3.   Sketch Collection Designs
4.   Develop Merchandising Information

               Label & Explanation
Label Name: Marilyn

Label Description: Marilyn clothing is designed for young
professional women looking to enter the working world.
Words like “glamour”, “luxurious”, and “sophisticated”
describe their sense of fashion. 1950s style couture clothing is
back in demand…however, the materials (i.e. wool and felt) of
the past are too heavy for today’s living. The Marilyn line
provides a refreshed version of feminine, glamorous looks
from the 50s.
                        Fashion Design

                   Historical Inspiration
The fashion of the 1950s is based primarily on the New Look style set in the late 1940s
by Dior. Many vintage styles of the 50's are full skirted, but some are the slim sheath
dresses favored by other designers such as Jacques Fath, the sack dress of the late
fifties designed by Hubert de Givenchy and the encrusted embroidered striking
jeweled evening designs of Pierre Balmain.

Other famous European designer names of the 50's era include Christobal Balenciaga,
Coco Chanel, Jacques Heim, Molyneux, Paquin, Robert Piguet, Jean Patou, Jean
Desses, Jacques Griffe, Nina Ricci, Fabiani, Madame Gres (earlier models called Alix)
and the House of Lanvin. They are the most sought after vintage European design
names to seek from 50's clothing.

Prized 50's American designer names include Claire McCardell, Mainbocher (Main
Rousseau Bocher), Galanos, Pauline Trigère and the Anglo-American Charles James.
                    Fashion Design

  Marilyn women remember that they’re women. Marilyn’s potential
  customers are seeking clothing that is professional, affordable, and
These women are in the early stages of their career in the professional
world. They understand that appearing put together on the outside will
 help them succeed. Therefore, they care about their appearance, but
  their salaries are not substantial enough to always shop in high-end
  department stores or buy everything brand name. They have a few
 basic, versatile pieces of high quality and supplement their wardrobe
                   with less expensive, seasonal pieces.
 Marilyn women do not belong to a specific race or geographic region,
               they are determined primarily by their job.

                    Target Retailers
Target Retailers:
1. Kohl’s
2. Target

These are affordable stores where many young women shop, but
they do not carry many clothing options for modern, young
professional attire.

Target is always seeking new designers—but some customers
report that the store’s designer apparel is too eccentric for
everyday wear.

                       My Career Path
The following list are the goals that I would like to accomplish after high
school. Ideally, the final goal would be attained within ten years.
1. Attend and graduate from Fashion Institute of Technology
     --I can observe the New York fashion scene as I study

2.   Study abroad in the world’s fashion capitals
     --I will learn about what “fashion” means to women across the globe,
     and see how women in other countries are fashionable while being
     financial savvy.

3.   Work in textile manufacturing
     --I will be able to gain an understanding of textiles, which will connect
     me to potential investors for my next goal.

                  My Career Path (cont.)
4.   Own a small design boutique.
     --I will gain clientele mainly through word of mouth, and the connections
     I have established.

5.   Mass produce and brand the Marilyn label.
     --Millions of women will be able to access affordable and stylish clothing.

                      Follow Up
I showed my collection designs to women who would be considered
  potential customers of the Marilyn label to get feedback. The reviews
  were generally positive, but the need for additional basic pieces for the
  line were needed to help these women put together a full wardrobe of
  modern, ‘50s inspired clothing they love.

After expanding the collection with pieces suggested by my sample of
 young, professional women, I submitted the Marilyn collection with my
 application to the Fashion Institute of Technology. I am proud to say
 that I was accepted and am a step closer to realizing my career goals.
