Always on the lookout for cool online finds, I stumbled upon Chicstar.com, a cyberstop where you can auction, buy, or submit your own designs for clothes.
At Chicstar.com, you can find affordable tops, dresses, and denim for less than $100; If youâ€™re more adventurous, you can bid ebay style on sexy cocktails, gowns, and jackets.
More than just a regular online boutique, Chicstar.com is a fashion community with an ongoing, open call for design submissions. Fashion lovers and aspiring designers can submit, vote, comment and buy their favorite styles.
How does it work? Aspiring designers can submit a fashion ideaâ€”a drawing or sketch of their dream outfitâ€”and if the people at Chicstar.com love your idea, you can get one item for free. If your winning sketch is picked for production, you win $250 cash (and the chance for other people to buy your designs)! The opportunity is perfect for the aspiring design star.
