...new and improved

NOT JUST A LABEL introduces new features in order to continue as the epicentre for the fashion designers of tomorrow. Just four months after its soft launch, NOT JUST A LABEL (NJAL) has become the leading global platform for graduates and young designers to showcase their collections. To take advantage of its position as a link between the creative talent and industry, on September 1 2008, NJAL delightedly presented a number of new features to its website. The new tools will provide more efficiency and offer additional benefits such as job listings and RFQ's. These features have enabled international press, renowned retailers and designer houses to build a closer network with the industry’s newest and prominent fashion designers of today.

Some of the site’s new features include:

JOB LISTINGS – One of the site’s most important new features allows recruiters to post vacancies to a highly selected group of designers, graduates and industry professionals, plus enables designers and graduate students to post notices for job requests.

RFQ (request for quote) – Buyers and press are able to, for the first time, contact and buy from the largest global talent pool of new designers by using the RFQ button which is added to each designer’s look book. By adding this feature, NJAL’s designer directory has become the most efficient tool for the industry to access new and upcoming designers and their collections.

ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES – NJAL gives companies in the industry the opportunity to place specifically targeted advertising campaigns on NJAL’s main page. NJAL offers a rare opportunity to reach a global community of opinion makers and interact with a unique network of like-minded individuals with a profound sense of trendsetting.

FASHION SCHOOLS DIRECTORY – NJAL gives schools the opportunity to introduce themselves and their courses to students and aspiring fashion designers around the world. The directory provides a source of information on educational programs and courses as well as an introduction to a wide selection of international universities and schools, including the most renowned institutes in London, Paris, Antwerp and Berlin.

Other features, which further assist NJAL users include ‘Most viewed designer’, ‘Newest collection by’, ‘My main collection’, ‘Editor’s corner’ and other exposure opportunities.

The various new features and tools create more interaction between NJAL’s designers and the industry. It invites the industry to engage, source and network with NJAL’s largest community of thriving and fresh new talent.
