When I was growing up, I didn't place much importance on clothing designers. This is in all likelihood because my mom never did, and I just put on my clothes and walked out the front door.
I always want to look nice, but buying clothes because of a designer label was never that important to me. Now, however, I pay more attention to who makes the clothes I like because I want to look for that same line again. Most designers have a theme, of sorts, and that means if you like one thing, they probably have more that you would like just as much.
You will never catch me buying designer labels just to have them or because they are trendy. That to me is a waste of money. However, if you like the clothes, this is a great reason to be sporting that label. Clothing designers all differ, but many leave their mark on lots of the things they produce. This is not only something they like to do, it is something they do for advertising purposes. They hope their name will become hip, and everyone will buy it.
It is just about the same as with any product on the market. The difference with clothing, however, is that everyone needs it.
If you have clothing designers that you love, you can usually rely on them to come up with something else that you will love to own. They may make many different styles and designs of clothing, but each one is uniquely stamped with their own one of a kind individuality.
This means that if you like one thing, the other releases from the same designer will appeal to you as well. The clothing in their product lines will all be connected. For instance, if you like Old Navy, you may notice that all of their clothes have the same feel, even though they are all different. Not everyone likes the look, but those that do go back again and again for more.
When you want to find clothing by your favorite clothing designers, you may not always have to pay the full price. Some are more expensive than others, and if you love one that costs quite a bit, you will have to be ready to ready to invest if you want those clothes.
On the other hand, you can find discounted clothes on places like eBay (check to see if they are new or not) and even in some stores that specialize in discounts or seconds quality. Some of these clothes are just fine, but will often have a minor flaw no one can see, whereas others are disasters. Take your time when searching for your favorite clothing designer this way so you know what you are getting.
