NextStyler is an online community built around cutting edge fashion. The website gives the average fashion addict a chance to create their own fashionable designs that will be created and sold on NextStyler. The user begins by composing an outfit as a drawing. The user can share their creation through NextStyler contests. Others vote on their favorite designs. The winning design is chosen and will be manufactured and sold on NextStyler. Users are not required to draw fashions. Those who simply love to look good can vote on their favorite user created designs and share them through Google Plus, Twitter and Facebook. Garment purchases can be made directly through NextStyler. Users can purchase brand new, unique and recently discovered garments that they helped support and create.
The idea behind NextStyler was conceived in 2010. The creators wanted to present the web with a new way to create and support new fashions and their designers. The site has received positive reviews from Killer Startups for the way it releases those who are passionate about fashion from the boundaries set by the fashion industry. An amateur or budding designer can create something beautiful and get noticed on NextStyler.
NextStyler has done something amazing for fashion enthusiasts. Users can now showcase their best creations for a chance to actually have those designs produced and sold on the site. In the past, users would be restricted to doing their own sewing or trying to work their way into the fashion industry to get a design created. NextStyler provides the average person who loves fashion a rare opportunity to transform their garment ideas into real, wearable clothing.
NextStyler is all about fashion, so naturally the site must look somewhat fashionable. The black and white color scheme creates a beautifully dramatic appearance (enhanced by the stylish logo font). The site manages to keep the focus where it should be without throwing too many colors, patterns or other visual elements at the user. Contests provide users with a specific collection of colors along with a Moodboard that helps users explore the style expected for contest submissions.
A new user can join the NextStyler community by clicking the white “Register” button along the left hand side. The button slides smoothly to the left, revealing two options. Users must register as a fashion addict or fashion designer. After clicking the corresponding button, the user is asked to supply an email address, username, password and country location. A small box at the end of the form is available for user who wish to sign up for NextStyler updates. This is optional and not automatically selected. Users must check their email inbox for an activation email. This must be accessed prior to signing in.
All visitors can join the NextStyler fashion community for free. There are no subscription fees or other fees associated with using the site. NextStyler is still in beta, so it is possible that this could change later (although that is not indicated on the site). NextStyler includes a clothing store that sells user-created fashion designs. These will come with a sale price however the user is not required to make a purchase to maintain an account.
NextStyler was designed for anyone who loves fashions. Casual users can visit the site to vote on contest submissions and purchase unique designs created by other users. Serious fashion addicts can try their hand at creating a unique garment or outfit to submit to one of the themed contests hosted by NextStyler. The user can return as often as they like to experience newly designed fashions.
