whats up fellow hypebeast follower. i recently started my own clothen company. (i know the market is overly full with designer) but i have a good feeling about my ideas and i refuse to go through life without trying.

So is mixing high fashion with urban fashion a good idea. And what age group should i target?

this belongs in the Fashion section, and yes they can. e.g. Bape, BBC. High-end Streetwear. and don't target an age group. it makes your brand look like shit.

i believe you can mix high end with low end, fashion is fashion and it never ends, people will always look for something "exclusive" that no one else has, im kinda wanna start my own clothing line but i just wanna finish school first.

Of course you can, if you can make it work with your style why not try it. Like adoboFosho said magazines like GQ, are mixing and matching high-end fashion with street-wear

Actually that's exactly what my brands goal is as well lol Not so much like bape or bbc which is just high end streetwear. More like an emulation of alexander wang or givenchy but inexpensive. I'm targeting high schoolers which is easy since I'm in high school. Our designs are very minimalistic and classy. So yes it can be done.

I think the japanese do it well, combining high end and streetwear. For choosing a name just think about what interests you. I developed my business name PRIMARY COLORS out of my love for Roy Litchenstein, pop art, and the belief in not taking life so serious.

To me there is not age group really for it. If you were to target I say maybe teens to grown adults which is like 15-30 and maybe older. Since you are mixing 2 classic things there is no way to have a age group.

possible, but I feel like if you want to go in the "urban" direction you have to fully grasp and identify with the people who are buying it. With the industry being so over saturated, the likely hood of succeeding and "faking it" is extremely low now of days. Just be real, and get into something that suits YOUR lifestyle, instead of trying to be one of those wack poser brands.

its possible, the biggest thing you need to realize, is tht this isn't going to happen overnight. you're gonna have to put in a lot of work and sacrifice as anyone in the industry will tell you. on top of that the example of givenchy is a good example of success in the market you are after, but you have to consider how long that brand has been around since they made this pivot. they also had a ton of money in case this shit they are doing now failed a season or two. also you should honestly take a chunk of time to research whats going on in the market, especially in japan. the market out there is a lot more daring and will to try stuff out and you may find a lot of inspiration. another thing you may want to do is to try and find an internship with some brand. sure they'll probably treat you like shit, but the amount of things you'll learn will greatly out weight that.

I think the trend of today is similar to your concept. You should consider young professionals as your target market since their style is in the middle of being high end yet urban. Are you also considering online shop for your brand?

supreme mixes streetwear and menswear and hits the 15-30 range perfectly

Don't forget that the middle class is disappearing but anyways... nowadays being "well-dressed" doesn't mean to have expensive clothes all over you but to know how to mix quality independently of the prices. so the answer is yes, thats whats trending atm.
