To Brand Developers: Educational Researcher Seeking Plus Size Design/Patternmaking/Sizing Expertise
Specifically, I would appreciate it if I could interview you to learn more about the industry. Some of the questions I currently have include:
- What do you feel are the key issues regarding design of plus sized apparel?
- Do you take into account for the different body shapes of the plus size consumer? If so, how is this accomplished?
- Did you develop your own sizing and what is a typical size break / grade?
- Are there certain styles that you feel look better on your target market? Are there some styles you don’t think look good? Why do you think these styles are more/less successful?
- What do you feel are some future trends for plus size clothing?
I am very flexible on dates/times if someone would be so kind as to agree to speak to me. Our conversation can be as confidential as you feel comfortable with – I can either give credit to you by mentioning your name/company next to all the information I use or I can keep you out of the spotlight so that no information can be traced back to you. Or it can be a combination of these as you see fit for your business needs.
I would like to get this article written by mid-August so drop me an email by the end of July so that we can communicate: firstname.lastname@example.org
