Styleshake; affordable bespoke fashion at the click of a button
A funky little idea, Style Shake is a bespoke fashion eBrand that allows you to follow a set of simple instructions to become a fashion designer…and responsible for loosing a couple of hours of my afternoon doing so.
Choose your fabrics, choose your neckline, skirt shape and trims – you can design a complete collection of skirts, dresses and tops and in ten working days have it delivered to your door. In terms of sizing, you can order using standard EU sizes (e.g., 6 – 18) or have your design tailored to your specific measurements for no extra cost. Not bad for an average of £45-£50.
Hot on the social network bandwagon you can save your designs for other ‘shakers’ to view in the Style Gallery for inspiration. Members can rate and purchase your designs (the latter being great for the site and not so great if you’d hoped to design an exclusive one-off). There’s plenty of other ways to share your designs and big up your designer reputation by posting them to your Facebook or Myspace profile or sending them to friends.
Ranging from £29 for tops and skirts to roughly £55 for dresses in a vast selection of organic fabrics and more, Styleshake is perfect if you’re looking for something that little bit different. As of this afternoon, you can now even buy the Tinker-Tailor-Soldier-Sailor ‘capsule collection’ designed by my own fair hand under the alias Luckystar.
