New York, NY (PRWEB) September 15, 2012
Next Sunday, September, 23, Fashinspire, an online fashion design studio and network, will be introducing their beta site to the public with their first product: a three-tiered scarf that users can design using the Fashinspire customization tool. Site-goers can choose fabrics for their scarf from the Fashinspire textile collection and instantly preview and share their creation.
The ultimate goal of Fashinspire is to allow fashion enthusiasts to become realistically and socially involved in the design process by making available a large collection hard-to-find luxury fabrics. Users can choose from a collection of on-trend apparel and select any fabric to completely make the garment design their own. Customers can then connect to a design professional in their neighborhood with the help of the extensive Fashinspire network in order to help sew and complete their look.
The full site with these features will be launching in February 2013. Until then, Fashinspire will be offering monthly product introductions.
The concept of Fashinspire was spearheaded by Mukti Patel, an aspiring fashion designer from NYC with over 7 years of fashion industry experience. Upon receiving her BA in Economics from UC Davis, she pursued a degree in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design in NYC. Her initial entrepreneurial efforts were aimed to launch her own clothing label. During this time, her extensive knowledge and strong ambitions quickly got the attention of NYC Garment Industry professionals and suppliers.
One company in particular who has taken notice of Mukti is Better Methods Apparel Center (BMAC). BMAC is the World’s first computerized (CAD) apparel pattern marking and grading company. In addition to having a strong presence in NYC’s Garment Center for over 40 years and boasting an impressive fashion industry clientele, BMAC understands talent when they see it, and thus have provided her with relentless support, including use of their Manhattan office space.
In addition, various fabric suppliers caught on to Mukti's potential and quickly teamed up with her to help provde some of the best quality fabrics NYC has to offer.
Of these suppliers, Shariful Ahsan, manager of Silkhouse; a luxury fabric store in the garment center, has joined forces with Mukti to help carefully curate the 8000+ textile collection for the full site. Ahsan has over 9 years of experience not only as a fabric supplier, but also as a creative textile adviser to several designer clients.
On September 23 at 7pm EST, Fashinspire will celebrate their beta site launch with an online party, with contests and prizes throughout the night.
Fashinspire, based in New York City, is to combine a high-fashion luxury fabric store and fashion community online, providing never before seen fabric images and resources that are virtually unattainable outside the garment center.
Fashinspire is now open for private viewing to a select audience including editors and press.
