How to ask for Clothes - Catchy Phrases

 

PULLING SAMPLES

So you have a Fashion Blog, you would like to start wearing Designer Clothes for your ” Outfit of the Day ” Photo Shoot and wandering if it is possible to borrow the clothes from the Designers. The answer is yes, but obviously it is not an easy task to achieve unless you can prove that you have followers and a Professional Look that matches the Designer Style. Publicity for Fashion lines is managed either by their internal PR staff or by External PR Agencies.

Returning samples quickly after the shoots and in good order is very important. Where do you start ? First you need to identify the Look you want to wear.

 

IDENTIFY THE LOOK YOU WANT TO WEAR:

When choosing the Look, make sure to go on STYLE.COM, this is the Online Showroom for any Important Fashion Brand. From catwalk to sidewalk, backstage to after-party, Style.com employs breakthrough technology to deliver Fashion Shows and Designers Looks.

Take note of the Look you are interested, in my example is the Bluemarine LOOK 24.

This is what you will need to request to the Bluemarine Press Office, make sure to take a snap shot of the look, so that you know exactly the accessories and the Shoes included within the Look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IDENTIFY  THE DESIGNER’S PRESS OFFICE 

Some designers handle their Requests internally, so you will need to email the PR manager or director, but most hire an agency to handle their press requests. In order to identify who is the PR to contact you need to play a little Detective, but with these little hints you should be able to find your way to the PR Offices :

You need to send your Requests to the Designer’s Press Office. Please that they receive many requests, from  famous magazines around the world, TV Shows, Cinema, reference materials, periodocals, newletters, blogs from all over the world.

Unless you are really worth the effort, you don’t stand any chance that they will send you the clothes for a Fashion shoot. Make sure to include all relevant Information about yourself and your Blog.

  • Your Name in Full – Your Profile ( with Picture)
  • A short into about the Blog, the main topics covered.
  • Originality : Your Unique Selling Propositions
  • Your Stats : Page Rank, Social News Success
  • Traffic,
  • Average comments per post, facebook Shares,Twitter followers, Youtube suscribers, etc…
  • You may include some examples of Designers look Coverage.
  • Deadline
  • Email Address
  • Telephone
  • Remember that  this is business, and that Brands send samples to Blogs capable to drive Sales or increase exposure for the client.
  • Consider at least 100 unique visit daily a good target for a Blog, 10.000 Viewers per month.
  • Don’t Lie about your stats, there are plenty of ways to Assest your Blog, from Technorati, to Alexa, Google Adplanner, Google Page rank.

ESTABLISH CONNECTIONS EARLY

Don’t wait until the very last minute, you must build relationship with brands throughout the year, so that when you will need to send a request, you will be already known by the PR and i twill make the entire process easier. Perhaps following the brands and their PR on Twitter could be already a good start.

WORKING WITH PR AGENCIES – ETIQUETTE

A blogger who is a pleasure to work with will be remebered. You hav ebeen energetic and happy to be working with them. You remembered to say thanks, you might also mention that you hope to get a chance to work together again. It’s also thoughtful to follow up with a written note.

WORKING WITH SHOWROOMS

If you live in a City where there are Designer’s Showroom, set an appointment with the Showroom Manager or PR departement. Introduce yourself when you come in, so they know who you are.  

  • Have the Paperwork ready and organized.
  • Make sure you get  areceipt or list of the wardrobe you pulled for the project.
  • Make sure to have the correct informations for the credits to add into your Photos.
  • Inspect all apparel and accessories before the wardrobe vendor releases the wardrobe, you don’t want to bring any damaged wardrobe to set or to be responsible for it afterwords.
  • Set up an appointment to return the wardrobe and make sure it is returned in time.
  • Discuss if they want the items dry-cleaned before you return them.

STYLING BASICS

  • The Rolling Rack is the most basic piece of equipment used by the stylist, invest in one, so that the clothes that you hav eborrowed will remain unwrinkled, you will be able to place boxes with accessories on the bottom rails.
  • The Steamer is an other piece of equipment that will help you look very Professional in all your Photo Shootings. I would advice you to invest in  areal professional one.

This article has been a joy to write and share with you. I hope it’s been beneficial to you learning more about how to Prop for Fashion Designer’s clothes. Have fun in the studio or on location.

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in
    3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog
    loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a
    good web hosting provider at a honest price? Thanks
    a lot, I appreciate it!

  8. Aug 14, 2013

    Excellent blog here! Also your website loads up very fast!
    What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link
    to your host? I wish my site loaded up as

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you
    could space it out better?

  10. Aug 18, 2013

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
