I started Damien Alezander stylez a year ago out of a personal interest in fashion and photography. What began as a hobby quickly turned into friends asking me where can they purchase my clothes from. As a result I built a name for myself with my close friends and refferals, Iv`e been busy going to trade shows fashion expos trying to see if someone would discover me ,I realise the market saturated with fashion designers like myself ,and that most institutions as well as banks have little or no faith in us .So here it is....... Am asking all my friends and visitors to support me in my campaing to raise funds to enable me to take this dream of being a well foundation fashion designer, if you work at a financial instition and can even assist in getting a buisness loan or marketing agency you can help in getting my name out there it would be really appreciated your name or company would not be forgotten I promise ...
80-90% of the website's content is submission-based and I would look at each submission individually. Between site mainteance, server costs and the increasing rate of submissions, Damien Alezander stylez has become too difficult to manage and financially support by myself,therefor it was discontinued .
What Damien Alezander stylez Needs & What You Get
The main goal for funding is to cover the costs of a new website server, maintenance and the addition of regular contributors.
Server Costs/Site Maintenance - Having a website that is heavily image-based takes a lot of bandwidth and requests to the server. I have upgraded numerous times, supplementing the costs with site advertising but with the demands of increased traffic, this has not been enough lately. Due to the nature of having a Wordpress site, which already uses a significant amount of memory with its many queries, with a lot of hits, the server has to deal with high PHP spikes. This is even with having a cache in place. Because of this, it would require dedicated server hosting with the most resources available. For server hosting and site optimization, the cost is $1,000 per month for a total of $12,000 per year.
Contributors - With your support, I can get regular contributors to go through submissions and post to the site. This will also allow me the time to do more site features like interviews, trend reports,introduction of fashion police etc.
As a token of my gratitude, a Damien Alezander autographed T- shirt would be made available upon request for anyone contributing anything over $25 exclusivity will be my printed as a limited edition for contributions of $25 or more. If I make more than my goal, funds in excess will be used to create future designs. Models /Photographers/Designers are welcome
