It is not only important in fashion to be the first one on trend, but also to make it original. One way to ensure originality is with handmade clothing and accessories.
In a sea of mass produced items something handmade makes your outfit unique.
If you are a knitter, jewelry maker or seamstress, you can make almost anything, but what if you were born without the crafty gene?
There are online retailers that sell handmade goods. Better yet, go into your local bead shop or knitting store and there are items already made and ready for sale.
Shop festivals and boutiques to find one-of-a-kind handbags, hair clips and jewelry to make a true fashion statement.
