Thank you to everyone who responded to last week’s post asking for advice for retailers of women’s fashion. I heard back from two retailers and when I have permission from them, I will let you know exactly who is listening! For now, have a look at these responses:
“I read every single comment that has been written so far and I’ll be sending this post to many people here at our office who would benefit the most from reading these comments. We take all of our customer comments to heart and luckily since we design almost all of our own clothing, we have control over the design, fit, fabrics, etc., and so many of our designs are a direct reflection of what customers are asking us for or telling us that they don’t like.”
“Thanks for your post about what women want in a retailer. We’ve been devouring the responses.”
You are making a difference, ladies. Now, let’s keep it going. Several of you used the word frumpy in your comments. The retailers need our help. They need to know EXACTLY what you mean when you say their style is frumpy. Some truly do not get it. You may want to discuss fit, selection of prints, or quality of material. How is frumpy fashion different from stylish fashion?
Do you struggle with age appropriate fashion? What garments do you like to see to fill the gap? Please be specific for them. It is interesting how many different ways a women sees fashion as frumpy. We all look at this through different glasses. The more information you can provide the better. I loved last week when some discussed the size of dressing rooms and even location of bathrooms. Details always help.
This post is short because now it is your turn once again! Leave us a comment explaining to the interested retailers exactly what FRUMPY means to you. And put yourself in their shoes for a moment. If you were a buyer for a clothing retailer, how would you best avoid purchasing frumpy fashion?
Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by and for participating!
