How crowdfunding is changing the business of fashion

In an industry sees runway trends transformed into high-street hauls in a matter of days, its no wonder that independent designers are struggling to compete.

But we at LiveTree want to shake up the system.

We want to give independent designers a place to share their collections and fund their ideas. We want to give consumers a choice and a chance to really be a part of the fashion they love.

Creatives only…

Traditional crowdfunding platforms have low success rates for designers because their businesses are pitched against non-creative projects. LiveTree is different – our platform is exclusively for creative projects in fashion and music.

Just ask…

We don’t have to tell you about the power of the web, fashionistas have raised thousands through crowdfunding. However we realize that isn’t what everyone is looking for in a crowdfunding campaign. Maybe you want to create a one off piece and just need a small investment to get your project off the ground.

Each campaign is different. Our designers decide their needs and set rewards for investors and buyers. No judgment here you can ask for as little or large amount as you need!

Spread the word…

LiveTree is unique. Our philosophy is all about using word of mouth to share the things you care about, with the people you care about. As well as investing in crowdfunding projects you can take it to the next level by ‘branching’ projects i.e. sharing with your friends. In this way the projects get funded more quickly and you can earn commission as a thank you.

Support a good cause…

As if helping new designers wasn’t enough, you can use your commission earnings to support our partner charities. We make it so simple to donate to these good causes at just the click of a button.

 

Our designers are part of a movement of slow fashion. Items are designed for longevity, for individuality and for the sake of creativity. Crowdfunding is changing the world of fashion by giving independent designers a voice and giving consumers a choice.

How to survive as a fashion blogger

If the writers at Marie Claire are to believe a new fashion blog is born every 0.25 seconds (or so it feels like)… whilst that might be good news for the everyday fashionista, if you’re a blogger it’s the last news you want to hear. More fashion blogs mean more distractions for your readers and more competition to create stand out content.

So how do you continue to separate yourself from the growing army of fashion bloggers, and more importantly how can you build your blog into a more successful business?LiveTree is shaking up the system and what’s more we can help you to make the transition from fashion blogger to fashion designer. Sound too good to be true? Let me introduce you to our platform…

LiveTree is a revolutionary site that uses the tried and tested principles of word of mouth to empower creatives. We provide up and coming fashion designers and musicians the opportunity to showcase their creativity by selling their products within our unique community.

You’re probably thinking it sounds a bit like a jumped up version of Etsy, but that’s just the beginning. What makes LiveTree unique is that you as a fashion blogger can browse collections from up and coming designers and when you find something you love, you can share it with your followers – we call this branching.

By branching the things you love, you not only support independent designers, but in the process you earn commission from any sale made through your links, so everyone’s a winner!

Branching products is just the first step, the LiveTree platform allows you to forge relationships with those at the cutting edge of fashion.

There are opportunities for you to help designers to build their brand by seed funding their creative projects – you could help to fund their next collection and in the process earn rewards – think behind the scenes fashion stories, interviews with the latest fashion designers, exclusive invitations to get your hands on the collection before anyone else. Anything is possible!

LiveTree is starting to sound pretty good, even if we do say so ourselves – but we’re not finished yet, as a budding fashion designer you can start your own crowdfunding project and promote it through your blog. You could even get your own followers to fund the creation of your very own fashion label.

The only question left to answer is ‘are you ready to make the transition from fashion blogger to fashion designer?’

At this early stage LiveTree is an exclusive, invite only platform and if you want to be part of this elite club you will need to act fast. Grab this opportunity with both hands by contacting us today to get your invite code and become one of the pioneering fashion bloggers to use our groundbreaking platform.
