The Sun is shining, the beachâ€™s are packed and the holiday season is here... But your not designing for the beach babes and beach boys. Instead, your thinking warm crackling fires, hot chocolates and a white white winter. Launch Initiative is excited to offer its Designer Memberâ€™s only a one off offer to get the ball rolling. Over the Xmas and New Year break, you will have the opportunity to get designing for our first official Womenswear Autumn Winter 2010/2011 collection. Launch is getting raunchy for the rainy season, with our Autumn Winter 2010 collection to be themed...
Classics with a hint of Sex & Skin
Our signature style at Launch, is what we call ‘Urban Career’. We want your designs to fit across day wear and night wear, so buyers can get maximum wear out of your creations! The idea of ‘Urban Career’ is Career Wear meets Street Wear. So think anywhere from Country Road to Sass & Bide.
We all know thigh-high anything is hot this season. Play with outifts that sit well with thighhigh boots or thigh high socks.
Leather and Fur
Though here at Launch we’re a little eco, and we love our animals... We’re never afraid to recycle or ‘imitiate’ for the sake of fashion. But don’t go crazy and design a floor length mink coat!
Think interesting textures, chunky knits and lots of layers
Dandy, Preppy and Structured
Think ruffels, structured lines and silhouettes. Fashion of the 20th Century lets us borrow our boyfriends clothes and get away with it, so lets take it to the next level and dress a little dandy and masculine, but still keep that chic and feminine edge to our clothes.
Sex and Skin
Cut outs, sheer fabrics, off the shoulder and a-symmetrical lines have made a come back, so feel free to throw a bit of cheeky skin into your designs!
