Designer Market


Usually a well known designer, using expensive fabrics ($10 - $50 per yard). The "look" is sophisticated


and refined and caters to an affluent customer. The customer ranges in age from 25 to 60 and is status


conscious. These cloths are not trendy. The average price point for a jacket is $500 - $1500 retail. Designers


in this category include Donna Karen, Bill Blass, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta and Geoffrey


Beene. Stores carrying these collections are Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys, and Neiman Marcus.
