Wow. A patterned product business that produces the design that wins the most votes from viewers. naked and angry, which is an extension of threadless, has combined the task of design selection with focus group research and consumer based selection, to come up with a fresh take on an old business model. Very innovative and frankly, I like a lot of the designs. Kind of blows my "textile designer from another era" mind though. What a fabulous opportunity to get ones patterns out there to be seen and produced without a rep or having to hit the pavement yourself. Proof positive that technology can improve some things in life. Love this one from Taylor btw.
