Working with FashionEdits has allowed us to understand the true resource that they are in this industry, from their featured designer spotlights to their substantial tradeshow and brand directories. FashionEdits is a network that's essential for designer & retailers looking to improve merchandising and sales."

"Since appearing as "featured designer" in FashionEdits - my name and designs have gained prominence and attention. Even more, the FashionEdits staff went above and beyond, surpassing all of my expectations. They promoted my name as a brand and were instrumental in my being selected for "rising star" status with the FGI. FE introduced and connected me with several stores on Madison Avenue where my fashions are now being sold. FashionEdits made a positive difference in my success."
