    hi
    If you just pick up a new product that you have not tried before in a store, the chance that you have pick a wrong product is as high as 80%. Don`t waste you money this way. Ask your friends, in forums, through website, anywhere....... just get more information first. This would make you a wise buyer and would gain the benefit  of money well-spent on the products
    thank you

    I remember when I was asking myself same question 3 years ago. I wish there were all of the resources available today to avoid mistakes and wasting your time. I`ve recently found a great website and they have an article that will answer your questions: Fashion Business World. I`m not sure if link would work, you can just go to www.fashionbusinessworld.com. Hope this helps.

    What has worked for me has been the "piggybacking" approach. I find products that are similar to mine or that compliment my and I get thier store list (off the website) and call their stores. They`ve already done the majority of the hw... I have had a ton of success using this approach.
