Seriously, I see new brands being posted here on a daily basis, yet I fail to see ANY of them making it BIG.They all just fade away and die.

it takes time for brands to blow up. And it takes more than 1-2 seasons, and most brands on this forum are only in their earlier seasons. Look at IM KING, they were in this thread and they are going to be going places. Modernarts brand castles in the sky is oding well. Suppsoedly Orisue use to post here (correct me if i am wrong).

lostone, I understand what you're say and i'm going to have to agree w/ FearItSelf. It takes time for most of the brands to make it big. Some brands have different definitions of "making it big" it could be financially or longevity. I'm sure most of us are trying to build a brand and understand that the money will hopefully come later. It takes hustle, dedication to your craft and persistence. Most of us will get our brands rejected from our favorite stores, get ignored, and not get calls returned from buyers. You really have to believe in yourself and keep grinding. I'm a new member but i've been coming on this site for a few years and I've seen a lot of talented people. Sorry if i'm sounding like a motivational speaker but with time and hard work you'll get there.

No ones gonna make it "BIG" until the fashion purge comes and like 75% of brands are wiped out.

As of now (mostly)everyone is riding a trend.

It also depends on what you consider big.

I think making it big means your not broke hahaha but it does take 3-5 years to establish a brand and not a clothing company... to make a brand time and detication is key

however, getting shit into a site gives it good exposure. People will believe its something to buy. Its like getting into the Kazbah, you pretty much make no money, but you get damn good exposure
