Overview of what we can offer your fashion design business

Finding clothes that fit you perfectly no doubt is difficult but equally exhausting is the job of locating a good tailor and going for multiple fitting sessions. Online custom clothing platforms address this primitive concern in a very efficient manner. Custom tailoring websites enable users to select fabric, design it as per their style, and get the stitched piece of clothing delivered to their doorstep.

The growing demand of custom clothing and success of Modern Tailor marketplaces has motivated entrepreneurs to start their own venture based on a similar business model. Looking at the same trend, market researchers at Gabzy Media have listed the best features which should be part of your custom clothing clone website.

But before studying the features, let’s first thoroughly understand the business model of this booming industry.

Business Model

Primarily the business model of such platforms revolves around selling custom made clothes including shirts, traditional waers, trousers, business suits, jackets, blazers, and accessories. The major highlights of the process are:

  • Fabric selection
  • Style selection covering collar, buttons, cuffs etc.
  • Submission of measurements
  • Payment and delivery details

Once the order is received and the payment has been made,  you start customizing the shirt/dress according to the inputs provided by the user. Order is shipped to the user upon completion.

So, this is how things work on our custom tailoring websites. Now, let’s see how they make money during the process.

Revenue Generation Model

As the business concept of custom clothing websites deals with sales of finished products, the website owners earn direct revenue from customers depending on the number of orders received.

In addition to that, banner ads is also a viable revenue generation channel for these platforms.

That should be enough for the business end, time to explain the most critical websites features we include in our custom clothing websites.

Website overview

Your custom clothing website should have a neat interface. Users should be able to browse the website & explore all of its basic features without creating an account.

Top Navigation

The top navigation bar of your custom clothing website should feature tabs for all the essential pages such as How It Works section, Sign-up/login options, as well as for separate channels for customizing and designing different types of clothes.

Below-the-fold Area

The below-the-fold area should be used to feature a section that quickly explains how things work on the website. Below that, you can feature a grid of images of the past work done on the website.
