Register for your free account at http://www.LaunchMyWear.com. After you’ve signed up, you’re ready to create your first piece! Follow along for the steps and helpful tips I’ve learned when designing products.

  1. First, you’ll want to upload your artwork. I usually create my art in Photoshop, but you could also use Microsoft Paint, Adobe Illustrator, a photograph, or a picture of something you’ve drawn/painted. I recommend uploading 300 pixel/inch resolution, so your artwork is large and high-res enough to cover your design in full. The one I uploaded here is 4000×6303 px and 19.4 MB.

  1. Hover your mouse over the art you uploaded and select “Design your own”. This will take you to a menu of products to choose from. I’ve selected the Plus Size Fit & Flare.

  1. Now, we get to the fun stuff! When your design first appears on your product, it will show as a rectangle, one that most likely doesn’t fit the entire piece. There’s an Auto Fit button which will automatically fill the entire product.

4. Or, in order to get your print to cover your product entirely, you’ll want to use the plus sign to scale the art to the whole piece. Use the arrows to align it further to the left or right. To make the print smaller, use the minus option. If you’re planning on using more than one artwork on your piece, you can use the additional artwork tabs to do so.

5. To apply color, select the area of your product you’d like to fill and turn artwork off in the color tab, if needed. Choose the color you’d like to apply to the selected section.

6. Now your design is up and available for purchase on your MyWear® store! Share your newly designed piece with family, friends, and your social media audience! When an order is placed, we’ll manufacture and ship it, and credit your dues to your account.

Your Print Guide for Spring/Summer 2016 is Here!

Dolce-and-Gabbana-SS16 around the world prints launchmywear.com

If you caught any glimpses of Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, you’ve probably already caught the buzz. After watching the absolutely dazzling array of cheerful, globally-inspired prints that walked the runway, I wanted to pre-order one of everything the models were wearing. Unfortunately, that isn’t in my budget this year, as I am not Beyoncé 😦

D&G took us around the world, with loud, in-your-face color and embellishments that were streamlined in classic, feminine silhouettes. Just look at these photos from the show!

This recipe of adventurous prints and color in ladylike cuts made for an absolutely delightful show that, of course, inspired me to create my own look on my LaunchMyWear:

Marc Jacobs’ print game was strong, too. His collection showcased a lineup of models with tons of pumped-up, old Hollywood glamour, and even more New York Dolls-style attitude. Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers, so, of course I had to pay homage to his  incredible Spring ready-to-wear line, as well.

My take on his plaid/floral numbers. I ❤ you, Marc!

Another gorgeous collection that stood out for me was Diane Von Furstenberg’s. I know floral prints in a spring collection isn’t a new concept, but Diane Von Furstenberg does it so darn well. This woman knows prints like she knows wrap dresses. So, this Spring ready-to-wear trifecta wouldn’t be complete without her.

Make Your Teenage Dream Of Becoming A Fashion Designer Come True

blog_banner_1

In the world of fashion, it doesn’t make any difference if you’re 15 years of age or 50 years of age. The only thing that is in any way important is whether people will like and buy your plans. So it’s never too early to take after your dream of turning into a Fashion Designer!

Turning into a fashion designer at a very young age is quite challenging, but it will be more than worth it, if you devote time and keep the right tips in mind.

So, here are our handy tips on “How to Become a Teen Fashion Designer”:

icon_1Emerge Your Own Style:

One of the best ways to launch your dream is to live it. Pen down your thoughts, or better is draw outlines on paper. If you have a thought for a design, sketch it quickly and for that matter keep a sketchbook with you always. Paper and pencils are not hard to discover and it is better to do draw, before it slips your mind. Not to forget, modification is the greatest step, so revise your sketches time to time.
icon_2Educate Yourself:

Study fashion magazines religiously. Stay updated with the latest styles by reading blogs, checking fashion websites, following the top fashion bloggers and so on. Learn how to use a sewing machine. To be a fashion designer you should have some involvement in actually making garments. The best thing about your age is that you’re a high school student, you have an art teacher who might love to hear about your thoughts. Share your thoughts with your teachers. Not only can they give you useful tips, but also they may even be able to help you with landing your first job in the fashion world.
icon_3Set Realistic Goals:

If you’ve decided to become a fashion designer at a very young age, it is very important that you set practical goals for yourself. Obviously, you generally have people instructing you to go after this and that actress, but whatever the situation is, you have to set objectives for yourself that you know you can really reach within of a sensible time, so you don’t feel just as you have fizzled and give up on yourself.
icon_4Create & Promote:

Once you’ve implemented your sketches into a final dress, start promoting it. Begin requesting inputs from friends, family and online fashion groups. An awesome approach to begin is presenting your final product on your own blog. You can start a YouTube channel as well to hotshot your most recent garments made.

icon_5.2Hard Work Pays Off:

Success doesn’t come overnight. With devotion, eagerness and an endless love for fashion, you can make it. It’s something you work at, and don’t quit.

Because someone said correctly- “Life is too short to be living somebody else’s dream!”
