Fashion Line Name Crisis!!
Posted by Anonymous on

I am 19, and working on my fashion line. Looking for a good name that will describe me and what I want my line to portray has not been easy. The thing is no one seems to like any of my ideas. I have so far managed to come up with Versatile by Sylvee (kinda lame but straight to the point) distinctly sly (too complicated?), sparkle, retro rogue, be scene (too cliché?). I could use Sylvee but I feel the name is not complete in itself and moreso what tagline could I possibly use?
I am open to new suggestions of a name that represents young,youthful, ethnic and out-of-the-ordinary line. If it can incorparate my name or start with the letter S, the better but I am open to ANYTHING catchy :)

Firstly I like "distinctly sly" even if it hasn't much to do with what you do.
Do you make (design) your own fashions? Do you make them yourself?
"Scene by Sylvee"
"The Scene by Sylvee" (not too sure ... )
What do you think?
To your success, Moriarty xx

Try: Style by Sylvee.
You don't need anything catchy. Just use your name and
a word to evoke a feeling or an essence that wearers of your clothing can connect with.
Good luck with your career.

Moriarty, Yes I do design and make my own clothes :-) Thank you for your suggestions. If i find a word that goes well with 'statement', it could really work.
Gary Bloomer, sense of style is my mother's shoe brand so I am trying to stay away from the word 'style'. Thanks for your input. :)

Sylvee - how many customers can you cope with? Are you working alone, and so providing a design and a bespoke tailoring service too?
This is important as it can distinguish you from someone re-selling some fashion line they found from Chengdu.
Done well, you will see them not only used but enjoyed. Quite where are you aiming?
I had thought of "Style Statement" only ...
"Sylvee's Standard" (dull? flat?)
"Pencil and Needle" ????

Why not combine two words you like --

How about "Sylvation"?
