Review Of The Best Fashion Brands Of 2010

This review focuses on giving adequate information about the best fashion brands 2011. The best and most successful brands in the clothing and shopping niche have been D&G, Armani and Ed Hardy. There are definitely other brands that could also fall into this category, however, the 3 represented in this review definitely had a decent impact on how our teenagers and younger generation dresses today. Here are the reviews of each individual brand.

D&G (Dolce and Gabbana)

Dolce and Gabbana has been one of the leading manufactures and top providers in the clothing industry. Typical clothes and products that are produced from D&G are t shirts, jeans, belts, socks, caps, pullover, shoes, perfumes, watches, sun glasses, eye glasses, fan accessories, body lotions etc. The provider has been producing the highest quality products in all of these categories and niches since the last couple of years. In fact, D&G has become so popular that already teenagers at the age of 14 up simply love their products. We know that D&G is a great provider in quality and style, so the price must be remarkable high right? The prices for jeans, sun glasses and shoes are astronomic, and can hardly be afforded by many men and women. Unfortunately, this is why many fake products hit the market in the last decade and provided fake clothes and accessories from D&G.

Ed Hardy

Ed Hardy has been a sensation since the last couple of years. Through the production of high quality clothing like t shirts, jeans and caps Ed Hardy definitely stood out of the crowd. The America based company reached record numbers in sales in 2009 and 2010, and nobody sees this trend to slow down soon. It is similar to D&G one of the most professional clothing manufactures with a relatively high price standard. Caps can cost from around $70 up to $400 each. This is why only few people can actually afford original Ed Hardy clothes.

Armani

Armani is another top Italian cloth manufacturer. The strength of Armani lies in producing high quality jeans and belts. However, Armani also managed to bring perfumes and t shirts to the market that made it difficult for their competitors to fight back. The price is like for D&G and Ed Hardy accessories relatively high and not easily affordable for the average American. Armani accomplished to produce the best perfumes for both men and women in 2010.

Ladies’ Common Fashion Brands

Nowadays people treat perfumes as a must for their wardrobe and make up. It is not just the women who do this but it is now spreading to men as well. Perfume must be worn daily to enhance sophistication and classy dressing. Since perfumes will make you smell good, everyone will want to be near you.

It is good but you can make it even better if you can make the mixing of different aromas into one fantastic scent work for you. It will enable you to make a fashion statement of your very own. Have a look at the greatest names in the ladies perfume world.

A look at Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker will show you why it is the most popular with ladies, a habit that will be here for quite a long time still. Compare this to Armani’s Aqua di Gio and you will understand why these two are the greatest scents on earth for ladies.

If Armani is a giant in fashion industry it is the same for perfumes, for both men and women.

The single mention of Armani Code rings a bell with all women. It gives you a little whiff of wood, ginger and honey all wrapped up in one spray.

Most ladies find Lacome’s Attractio quite irresistible because of its rich scent, and then there is the Flower Princess from Vera Wang which is also very luxurious. It has some citric and flower smell. Older women go for Eternity but the younger ones like the fabulous Curve Kicks made by Liz Clairborne.

Tips For Creating a New Fashion Brand

As a child, I was confident that I would be a rich and famous fashion designer when I grew up. If pink nail polish, and designer jeans were the prerequisite, I was surely on my way. Color blocking was not an option in those days. Black shoes were the only staple, so I knew it all. In my first meeting with the fashion design high school, I was quickly shut down because of my inability to sketch. “Well, you would need to know how to draw and sketch,” the middle aged admissions counselor smirked. He then embarked on a fifteen minute lecture as to why my inability to do the latter would make fashion designing a rather formidable task. “Ouch!” My budding ambition, oversized ego, and teenaged self esteem, felt my pain in unison. “Imagine what skills I would need to become a lawyer,” I rationalized to myself.

Fast forward to the world of design software, computers, outsourcing and the internet. I am sure that the inability to sketch wouldn’t be frowned upon as such for fashion designing. It is never too early, or too late to develop your talent and innate ability as a fashion designer. Feel free to indulge in and create your new fashion brand if you are 12 or 55 years old.
