Say Hi to DIY Fashion: Blank Label and Laudi Vidni

Because we want fashion that define us and we wish to unleash our creativity without compromising on workmanship. I have found two places where we can “design” our own items – and the good news is,  there’s one for the men and one for the women. So everyone, rejoice!

1. Blank Label


It’s easy-peasy for guys who hate shopping. You choose the fabric you like – there are 60 of them to choose from, select the type of collar, cuff , placket, shoulder details etc. The base price for a shirt is US$45, and you can include the bells and whistles (such as contrast inner lining, embroidered initials, your own label etc) at additional costs. When in doubt, there’s an online customer service personnel that you can seek help from.

Because you have to indicate your size and your measurement, the fit is likely to suit your body type. Based on the reviews I have read on the web, the shirts are generally well-made and if you dislike what you receive, Blank Label will refund.

So, it takes merely 10 minutes to custom-made a shirt and the good news is, Blank Label ships internationally at US$15-25. I’m very jealous, because there is no such service for the ladies!

2. Laudi Vidni

For the bag hags who can’t find the right one – you can now go and make your dream bag!  There are a variety of sizes ranging from a tiny wristlet to a  medium-sized hobo and large tote for you to choose from. You can customise the type of leather material for different parts of the bag, and even dictate the lining and the colour of the goldware for your design.


Here’s the bag I designed – and it’s a reptile!

Pricing of the bag range from US$100-700, depending on the size and the material you choose. Laudi Vidni is able to ship internationally.

I think someone needs to come up with a DIY dress website. I wanna design my own dress!

    • Hi Eric, I saw Openrunway.com while writing this blog entry but didn’t know what was going on… will visit the website again when it’s officially launched!

  2. how fun! oh i hope they let us name our own creations? and will they sell customers’ creations?

    • for Blank Label, you can create your own “label” at the collar at extra cost. 🙂
