We have been really busy at Artizara!
The Spring Summer 2009 collection is now underway and we would love to hear from you. In these tough economic times, we realize that now more than ever, every garment we produce has to earn its keep. We have searched high and low, and really put our heads together to bring you styles that will do double duty in your wardrobe…that will transition from school to work, from day to evening, season to season.
We would love to know what you you like (and more importantly, don’t like) about Artizara products. Here are the key areas that we could really use your feedback:
Color: Do you like bright colors, pastels or neutrals? Do you change the colors you wear with the seasons? Are there certain colors you wouldn’t be caught dead in :)! Do you think dressing modestly means dressing in neutrals and staying away from color altogether? Do mainstream color trends matter, would you like to see Artizara modest shirts in the season’s hot colors?
Fabric: What are your preferred fabrics? Do you read garment labels to check the fiber content? Do you like natural or man-made fabrics?
Styling: How important is garment length to you? Do you like shirts to go to your knee, mid-thigh, below hip? Side vents or none? Extra long sleeves?
Embellishment: Plain shirts or embellished? Thread or metallics?
Care: I know that ironing tops the list of my least favorite household chores! Cotton shirts are great for comfort but do require the extra maintenance to look good. How important is garment care for you? Do you regularly iron your clothes? Do you shy away from buying garments that are “dry clean only”?
Price: What should you expect to pay for a good quality, modest long shirt? Is it evident to the customer that modest clothing takes more fabric to produce and is therefore more costly?
Bottoms: Are you more of a skirt person or slacks? Do you generally buy your bottoms at mainstream stores? Are there certain kinds of bottoms that are really hard to find?
Scarves: How important is it to coordinate the scarf with the shirt? Is it convenient to have dyed to match scarves or would you rather create your own signature ensemble? Is it easy to find coordinating scarves for your modest clothing outfits?
Evening Wear: Are there certain dresses that we carry that you love…or don’t like at all? Please let us know! Should dresses always be lined? What are your preferred fabrics and embellishments? Do you prefer dresses with a little shape or straight caftans? Are there dresses from a certain part of the world that really catch your fancy and could be “mainstreamed” as an Artizara product?
