Hanger Appeal is how a garment looks on a hanger. Is it appealing (enticing you to buy it) or appalling (making you overlook it)? For designers, hanger appeal is highly important. Personally, I no longer base my decision solely on this. I have tried on dresses that look amazing on a hanger or mannequin, but on me it is a different story. Looks can be deceiving. I went shopping over the weekend and saw a black jumpsuit. I’ve been looking for a black fitted sexy jumpsuit for years, but did not have any luck on my fashion hunt. I thought about hiring someone to make it according to my specifics, but never got around to do so. This black jumpsuit had no hanger appeal. It looked frumpy and too long on the hanger. I almost disregarded it, but being that I really wanted one, I tried it on. And can I say how gorgeous it looks on me (tooting my own horn!)?! It fits like a glove. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! This, my fashdarlings, taught me a HUGE lesson. Don’t toss it or buy it based on hanger appeal alone. I will never again judge a garment by its hanger. Some clothes may look great, yet fit horribly, while others may look horrible and fit great. Am happy with my jumpsuit! Yes, we will live together, forever, fashionably ever after.
