Heavy on Fashion looks at TrendSeeder

 How Trendseeder Came to Be
Launched on July 4, 2012 TrendSeeder is an e-commerce site which provides a platform for up-and-coming designers to reach fashion-forward consumers seeking exclusive limited-edition couture. It presents an opportunity for designers to establish themselves in an industry that has not historically been a champion for the new entrant, often opting instead to perpetuate the standing of the more widely recognized brands and labels. And it provides shoppers everywhere who desire to be on the leading edge of the fashion scene access to exclusive, limited-edition, curated designs that have typically been reserved for a small swath of consumers. Creating an environment for these two groups to connect creates value and opportunities for both parties; a core tenet in TrendSeeder’s philosophy.


A look at Trenderseeder: 
Trendseeder has tons of great accessories for men and women including handbags, jewelry, and eyewear. Here is an exclusive look at some of what…

Heavy on Fashion: When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer? What was the first article of clothing you ever designed?
Janean Johnson Of Jajo Couture: Well, that’s an interesting question.  I was actually a fashion photographer for several years and I started designing just random stuff to shoot.  I guess you could say I awakened a sleeping dragon.  I didn’t really think I would do much with it just stuff for fun but then I decided maybe it would be fun to explore it.  The next thing I know I’m doing fashion shows, photo shoots and other things and it just kind of happened.

Heavy on Fashion talks to FullFigurePlus.com

Hello Glen Thank you so much for agreeing to the interview. What made you get into the plus size fashion industry? What would you change about the fashion and beauty industry as a whole?
GLJ: My reasons are pretty boring to be honest.  I was out of work at the time and using my computer to help my wife look for lingerie and clothing. I decided after reading an article on blogging to start a blog specifically for plus sizes.  I started off writing about fashion and lingerie on two separate blogs then after 3 years I combined the two into one and pressed on.  Initially, I tried to incorporate big and tall men's fashion into what I do but I found men don't come online to shop, we just replace.
I would eliminate the size tags from clothes.  The numbers are meant for companies to catalog their clothes but the numbers inside clothes have become a crutch for millions of women around the world as well as ammunition for critics. The tags would be replaced with a system that relies on mea…
