Derek Lam will be selling 5 looks from his recent line on ebay with the help of a little known term “crowd sourcing”. I was initially confused…crowd sourced? I had never associated the business term with a fashion line. However, crowd sourcing is when a company outsources a responsibility typically held by a an employee of the company to a community based group or “open call.” This may be the new direction of fashion, one in where the buyer has the power to choose what they see on a runway or what is sold in stores. Honestly, this is genius, get the people to tell you want they want-then sell it to them. Marketing at Derek Lam…thums up!
