Default Would This Appeal to You?

If the ship you were on, had fashion shows, featuring clothes, that would be great to wear onboard, casual, dressy,& formal, would you attend? This could be, by designers brought on board, as a trunk show, with asst sizes, available for purchase. Could be fun!

Funny that you should bring up the subject. I have long thought that the cruise lines would do well to put on fashion shows featuring the styles that are on sale in the ship's shops. It would be fairly easy to have several fashion shows featuring various styles (formals, informals, casuals, poolwear and beachwear, lingerie, etc.) on cruises that spend several days at sea. It probably would generate additional revenue through an increase in sales by the ship's shops, too.

But JTOL, your suggestion of bringing major designers aboard raises another interesting possibility. How about a "fashion cruise" in which several major designers showcase their new lines?

Norm.

Hi Trip,
Yea, that would be fun and as long as the clothes weren't priced too high, I could see some increased revenue for the cruiselines, good idea!

I think that designer labels and "runway" type of show put on by the entertainment staff would be a great idea. The clothes, if reasonably priced $200 -$2000, would sell like hotcakes.

Take care,
Mike

taking Mike's suggestion one step further, let passengers do the modeling. you know "real" people.

Hmmm....

How do you think the majority of female passengers would react to being asked to model fashions because they are "real people" rather than very attractive employees of the cruise line?

I fear that some ladies would construe such use of the term "real people" to mean "overweight and misshapen" and thus take that designation as an insult....

Norm.

Norm, i will have to disagree with you on that point.
"Real" people are women with shapes and curves not stick-thin runway models with no shape. I also think that most women, myself included would be flattered. Same goes for the men- let them model also
