I'm used to hear the phrase "It's not worthy" when people look at the price of a chanel bag on a magazine, even when they look at a Zara's display (roll eyes). But we, the fashion people accept the prices without complain (if the money we have is enough) because we love the clothes.
But guess what?! it's totally worthy! when you see the garment you only see the garment itself, but there is a lot of work behind, and im not talking about the added value that the brand and building gives (you know that in the garment price you are paying the rent, light, the brand itself etc.). There's a lot of work that you dont see, first there's the designer's work and all that it involves like trends (WGSN cost over 100000 pesos per year); and the designer's team (like seamstresses) to develop the collection. Then you have to create samples to see if it is profitable for production, because the complexity of the garment is related to the number of persons that will be working for the brand.
At the same time there are a lot of persons that get paid for different thing like divers, carriers, quality control even the person that cleans the factory. So I´m talking about a huge amount of persons working to bring that garment to your hands, plus the quality of the fabrics, the exclusivity (the more exclusive the garment is, the more it costs, because its a smaller number of pieces but the number of people working is the same) and the talent of the designer made into one piece and its totally worthy!.
I've realized all this things while working for the first Burro collection, there's a lot of work behind that basic tee! believe me! so please dont underestimate the price of a garment because it's worthy!!!.
By the way, school and work are the reasons why i haven´t posted anything new this week. But here I am!.
