Crowdsourcing won’t make designers obsolete, but it’s opening up the world of fashion to outsiders.
Take the example of a college student I know, who’s studying journalism but loves fashion. She wanted to create a line of simple jersey skirts and dresses in a series of special prints she designed. We were brainstorming how she could do this and decided the ideal avenue would be for American Apparel to produce them and pay her a small license fee. Well, this was pure fantasy, of course.
