It was my never my dream to become a fashion designer. Not even an entrepreneur. But it’s actually happening now. Wooh right? 

Anyways..

I am currently doing a business with my teammates who are also in the track of fashion technology. Everything we do in enterprise planning is critical. We do a lot of planning and creating ideas and innovations because entrepreneurship is all about that jizz. An entrepreneur not just innovates, but also solves a problem. 

The first product line we’ve come up was the FIlipino textiles into modern streetwear. But since past students have already done that before, our advisers have foreseen that it wouldn’t be marketable and feasible considering that it would cost a lot of money plus it’s more highly be in specialty shops not in the real market. So we screw that plan and researched. We stumbled upon Philippine Textile Research Institute website, and saw a lot of the research technologies that they’ve done. PTRI develops and create textile method processes that are some what old but they’re very Filipino and eco-friendly. 

So, we contacted and emailed them, had a talk with the director, and to cut the story short, we had a training for two days.There’s just the four of us who drove to Taguig, second year college students, doesn’t even know where it’s actually located. Talk about independency there guys. Achievement unlocked!

Basically, the training we did was the natural dyeing transfer. You extract natural plants, like coconut husks, talisay leaves and such and turn it into a dye. It doesn’t harm the environment unlike other usual chemicals that goes on your clothes. And these natural raw materials are usually just thrown away, and so plus plus for product cost right? Agree with me. 

All our mobilization and product manufacturing, marketing strategies has been quite smooth considering that we’re four in the group. 

We really wanted something that is not just stylish and Forever 21/Cotton On looking products, but also something that the people can afford.

Skater Dress Prototype from Coconut Dye by Dye For Hue

We thought that the whole process would be really hard but it turned out pretty easy and well. We’ve planning to create streetwear clothing, that’s more likely be marketable for young people, including mens wear. (My teammate has a very androgynous style.)

Sketch fail, I know. (Watercolor in paper)

I’m just really excited how the whole business will turn out! I’m excited about the product line we’re gonna do, the manufacturing and the actual selling. Our team has received a lot of compliments about the business line, including the chairperson of our course. (Which is also I think is a bad thing because they’d be really expecting a lot from us.) It’s going to be mostly plans and tons of papers, but I’m definitely looking forward to it.
