Trop de Chats à Fouetter Mais Pas Assez de Temps

Today's Topic: The Business
Ah oh! Did I hear promoting?

As you may know or do not know, I have a small clothing label under the name of none so ever than Démodé Fashion. For those of you who don't what Etsy is, I will explain. Basically Etsy is like eBay except that you are only allowed to sell handmade, vintage older than twenty years old or supplies. It is a great site started by a NYU grad a few years ago. My girlfriend and I started selling vintage on eBay back in July. However, the profit was marginal and we decided to make the switch to Etsy around September. During the same time, I began my clothing line under Radioactive Threads which can be found here. During my winter break I broke away from the vintage store and launched Démodé Fashion.





Some pictures of the studio and the dress pattern that has been transforming
itself into an actual garment.


Well, this little adventure has kept me very busy. I spend around 4-5 hours a day on it. My two most recent projects have been a men's cardigan and a fitted button down shirt. They are both for sale on Etsy. However, the men's shirt is custom ordered to fit. There will be much more to post this weekend, so keep your eyes open.
