Model & Fashion Business

Hi all,

I am in the verge of starting a Model & Fashion Business (obviously through connecting a Social media concept).

I am looking for a person (preferably for a Lady--but not limited to mens for an experianced person) who might have already experianced in this field to be our sharing partner or even your expertise support (much appreciated) to build a platform to our business.

Business line is for Ladies Fashion (No Men).
Plan to have a first edition for January-2013.

I assume, you dont need much info about my business plan as the name "Model & Fashion Business" tells you 80% of the business concept.

Experts might give negative comment about my idea-- choosing a unfavorable and not creative idea where plently of business already existing in this is mode.

But my only comment will say...."lets give it a try....making through right steps".

If you are interested, please drop me a PM.

Many Thanks
TheCurvy's Team

Re: Model & Fashion Business

Okay, (I say as I wipe the little bit of wine that just spurted up out through my nose), I'm all in! Where do I send the check? And, do you only need 20% of the money as the other 80% speaks for itself?

I don't really understand anything you've written, or have a clue what you're after ....... so, for those reasons - I'm out.

That was funny.... A ridiculous, arrogant post....
I wonder where this guy comes from. A lot of people write like that so curious what his native tongue is.

Re: Model & Fashion Business

Hi there!
Why don't you tell us more about your business? I for one would be very interested to hear more. I'm pretty sure your prediction that many people would not think highly of your idea is accurate. At the same time, I admire your courage to give it a shot nevertheless. Just in case you didn't already think of this, why don't you advertise on marktplatz.uzh.ch? I remember once advertising for a fashion designer on there, and getting a couple of good responses.
Regards
S

Re: Model & Fashion Business

Dear Curvy's Entrepreneur,
there have been plenty of cases where offers like yours on the internet ended up being:
a) best case scenario: scams leveraging the ingenuity/vanity of models/fahionistas-wannabe who were asked for money in advance to join the startup and then bye-bye...
b) worst case scenario: a bait set up by perverts to get to know girls or to set up filthy pimping raket.
As I can see from a whois search on the web domain, it is parked with a registrar called Godaddy.com, and you are not registered as such with the commerce authorities in switzerland.
So, a basic background check puts you under the radar as a potential scammer unless you prove the opposite.
By the way, I trust your "bona fide" and I echo the reccomendation from other users to be more detailed and granular, possibly providing a contact Name of a person (not a generic TheCurvy's Team...)with a phone number where to address further information requests.
Good luck for your new Venture.
Dr.P

Re: Model & Fashion Business

Dr. Pirus,

Thank you for your comments and we respect to your concerns.

This is my 3rd post in englishforum,
the first 2 posts related to IT requirments where we could solve our needs with out any hostile comment from users.
the 3rd (present post) which is a functional need from our business perspective and users like to know more & more (I agree on it-- but we dont wanna get in to details about our business at this stage...).

Since we are a strat-up and have no experience to write fashion blogs, we are looking for the person who can help to build our webpage.

User may suggest to post our requirement in any Job website, but we are looking for a person who contribute his work only as a part-time (not as a full-time)

about your comments:
a) We are not asking money from anyone who replied. We only want their expertise, where we still pay a consulting fee.
b) We (I) dont need to get to know girls as I am a married guy with a kid. And my wife is part of the Start-Up venture.
WHOIS say's our domain is parked at Godaddy..and its true because of cost effective compare to swiss.


I request to users, if they feel this a spam, then please just ignore our post.
If you are interested, then send your reply through PM or write at:
swiss@thecurvys.com


Thank you once again for your comments

Then this.

Is it because you actually have no details, and expect the newcomer to provide them?

Re: Model & Fashion Business

Ok, I am an expert in fashion industry, working for companies, have been lecturer in a prestigious university in Istanbul, part of a jury for a contest in partnership with Elle Turkiye and an expert consultant.

So starting with this, I am curious what and how I could help you.
