We want to have a website that is a mix between this constrvct.com site, bucketfeet.com, threadless.com, and kickstarter. Essentially what it will be is we will design a few garment dresses, blouses, and shirts and put the blank models on the site of those garments. From there, artists will have the ability to upload their artwork onto the site and the artwork would get set onto the garment models like on constrvct.com. From there if they want to buy the garment themselves, we would create the garment with the digital print for them.
Second functionality outside of the artist just buying one piece is to have the artist set up a campaign for themselves, similar as kickstarter. Where they put the design on the garments and they create a page on the site for themselves, and the page has the functionality for the artist to create a selling campaign. They would push their artwork on the garment to their network (Facebook, instagram, etc.) as soon as people agree to buy a certain level, or there is a certain number of people that buy the garment, we would start production of that garment with their artwork on it. For example, if an artist pushes people to buy 100pcs of that garments with their artwork, then we would start production, and then send the dresses to the people who bought the dresses. The campaign would have the full story of the artist, etc, so the artist can promote their work and the garments.
For doing the campaign the artist would get a percentage off all sales. So we would need a backend account for the artist to see how much money they have earned.
Later we would integrate other products with it, so have the functionality to sell prints of the artwork separately with the garments, and other pcs like mugs with the artists artwork, etc. Basically have the ability to sell complimentary goods with the artists art on them.
Each artist would have a page on the site, where they can upload their art and people can also buy one pc at a time with whichever design from the artist they choose, on whichever garment they choose. Each page for the artist would have their entire profile, their "story" etc, to promote the artist.
We essentially want to give the artist the functionality to push their own art on our garments which we will make for them, for that we will give them royalties on sales.
The functionalities which it will need to have:
-campaign (artist selling their own art on garments) management (basically separate pages for each artist campaign like in kickstarter)
-3D garments and upload of artwork to them to position them as we spoke about before
-Have the ability to sell items with the artists art work on them as well, like prints, prints in frames from various choices, mugs, plates, pillows, etc.
-must have full social media capability and integration
The Framework of the website can be such as this:
