NED is a platform made specifically for emerging designers to aid in the promotion and launch of their careers into the fashion world. The website gives artists a way to reach an expansive audience by promoting their work, showcasing their designs and allowing another gateway for sales without the worry of upfront costs that are necessary to develop websites, sell to boutiques and advertise. NED is here to do the work for you – all that we ask in return is that our designers focus on creating unique and cutting edge fashion with high quality design and focus in mind.
We take Intellectual Property rights very seriously. If you believe that your rights as a designer have been breached in anyway please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. NED also refuses the rights to shop owners who have been found in breach of Intellectual Property laws. Repeat offenders will have their shop will be terminated immediately.
Think of NED as your fashion agent, we’re here promote and support your work and will keep you in the loop for future opportunities to have your work showcased at exclusive events and shows.
How does NED work?
NED is an initiative developed for emerging designers to showcase their work to a worldwide audience. To be a part of the family, designers are required to submit a portfolio for review. If selected, the NED team will work closely with the designer to map out a plan, seek potential opportunities for brand expansion with the assistance of government grants, and begin curating their ideal brand with the assistance of professional models, stylists and photographers. Our designers are also given instant access to create their own storefront and start selling direct from The NED Initiative platform.
How Do You Promote My Work?
The NED team will do their best to showcase your work online through social media sites (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest etc.) and exclusive events throughout major CBDs to help build your brand’s presence. We will also showcase a featured designer each month where you can give your customers deep insight into your work through. NED also actively works and collaborates with professional models, photographers, stylists, bloggers and influencers constantly seeking external opportunites that are a good fit on our designers behalf. These opportunities have proven to be great networking and promotional tools for both emerging and established brands.
