the Mae & Pearl Fashion Incubator.
Fashion is imaginative, intuitive, intentional and, especially, personal. We believe we've seen the dawn of a new era in fashion where people are allowed, more than ever, to wear clothing that suits both their activities and their personalities. We also believe that those who dare enough to dream of creating fashion should have an opportunity to make that dream come true. AND that opportunity should allow them to build something for themselves...a brand, investment money, a kick-ass wardrobe. We created the INCUBATOR for those dreamers who may not have the resources of time, money or influence to create a line of clothing, but they have the idea. Here's how it works:
Submit your fashion idea using the form below. Create a brand name, if you don't have one (it can just be your name, too). Give your idea a name (have fun with it!). Describe it as best you can (fit, fabrics, color or colors, function, etc.). Attach an image of it (a sketch, a digital illustration, a photo...whatever is within your power).
We will take your idea and post it on our INCUBATOR site for 30 days. There, visitors will register for access and be able to comment on any of the ideas in the Incubator. This is where you can help your idea. Tell your friends and family...anyone who will listen to you and believe in you, to comment on your idea if they like it and would buy it. When an idea gets 200 comments in those 30 days, it moves on to STAGE TWO for funding.
In STAGE TWO, we flesh out your idea so everyone can see exactly how it would fit and move. We create a price and determine your level of funding needed. You can also choose to help fund your idea to reduce the amount of funding needed. An idea has 30 days to reach it's funding level.
When an idea reaches its predetermined level of funding within the 30 days of Stage Two, it is produced! Those who have pledged will be the first to get theirs. The idea now moves to the public Mae & Pearl store where anyone can purchase it.
