Top 5 Platforms That Let You Launch Your Own Line Of T-Shirts!
Millennial Consumers look for something unique to go with their style every season & prefer online shopping to fulfil their fashion & beauty needs while sitting at home OR busy at work. While many platforms offer huge discounts, different collections & variety in style, cut & colours, the generation is still looking for something which is more personal & customisable. As every consumer nowadays is choosy & loaded with ideas, customisation is the hook that they are looking to invest their time & money into.
Right from colours to captions to original artwork on T-Shirts & other silhouettes, few fashion tech platforms are exploring this space actively.
Here's a list of 5 such platforms that provide the content creators with an option to launch their own e-store online with a line of customised t-shirts & other categories:-
Live with multiple artist, influencer and celebrity fashion e-stores, ReDesyn lets content creators convert their creativity into wearable & usable merchandise under their own brand name. The creative list ranges from tattoo artists, graphic artists, doodlers, fashion designers, youtubers, celebrities, influencers to anyone who creates content and is open to monetise it via converting it into merchandise. This also promotes micro entrepreneurship giving every individual an option to either curate OR create fashion that defines their identity. The platform showcases 12k+ designs available to shop for millennial consumers, segregated mood/collection-wise.
Content creators also get access to store analytics, already available design library, a design tool to create products on their own, ways to market it, commission on every sale & potential collaborations with established blogs, brands & celebrities.
The idea behind ReDesyn's "Fashion Merchandise Platform" is to let a content creator kickstart his/her entrepreneurial journey in a few clicks and less capital, which is otherwise a capital intensive affair.
