A few readers have emailed in to our site and left some pretty lovely comments. Thanks again for your support! Some common running questions that have popped up that I thought I would address:
1 How do you find clothes as seen on the show?
There are different ways I find clothes seen on the show. My most common method is to look at the outfit piece and identify any signature trademarks from the designer (e.g. tailoring, style, fabrics/patterns). From there I usually look into items fitting the designer’s style through the designer’s website, ShopStyle and Lyst.
Similarly, I might also look into brands that the characters have been seen with frequently on the show (e.g. BOSS Hugo Boss – Laurel, Anthropologie – Felicity). Sometimes the designers/brands tweet about pieces as seen on the show and I will use that information on the site (of course, with appropriate credit).
Another way, is to put in search parameters for a piece on sites such as ShopStyle and Lyst – this is usually my last option as I usually have to sift through pages and pages of results.
2 How do you find items so fast – before an episode airs?
The search for some items occasionally starts at least 1-2 weeks before an episode airs. I begin searching using promotional stills from episodes, promotional episode previews, social media photos from cast and/or filming and set pictures from Vancouver based photographers and Arrow fans. After that it is just a matter of finding items and scheduling a post to be published the week that the episode airs.
3Is your information free to use? Do I have to give credit?
If you do use our information, kindly credit ‘Arrowfashionblog.com’ – it does take a while to find some of the items, so it would be unfair to claim information as your own.
