Badgley Mischka[edit]

Is there a reason why Badgley Mischka is alphabetized after Carlos Miele in this template? It should be after Max Azria. Blahb31 (talk) 12:21, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Actually we need to talk about the criteria for inclusion here[edit]

How do we determine who should be on this template and who isn't? It seems that, taken to extremes, this template could include all names on List of fashion designers PLUS List of footwear designers and quite a few more entries besides, which would be ridiculous. I think we need some very clear and specific rules/criteria. Mabalu (talk) 22:25, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

Pinging 15zulu, Sardanaphalus, as active editor and creator. The problem with this is that if we do not have REALLY clear criteria for inclusion, then this template could rapidly get out of control with anyone assuming they can just add any company/designer label to the template. Mabalu (talk) 22:59, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
No idea, I was primarily editing links. I added three because I saw them while working on adding the navbox on designers already on the list and thought they fit. If those three are inappropriate feel free to remove. 15zulu (talk) 12:00, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
I think this list should only actual proper names of fashion designers who started eponymous labels, and should not include brands like J Crew. (Heroeswithmetaphors) talk 19:15, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Duplicate links[edit]

We should only be linking to each article once per navbox. Each article is included twice here, which obviously causes redundancy. I've removed the links by country in favour of the alphabetical list, but I have no real preference if consensus prefers the groupings by country. But one or the other, not both. --Rob Sinden (talk) 09:11, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

I preferred the country list since it gave some sort of organization/categorization vs. just a big list of spam. 15zulu (talk) 12:01, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

criteria for inclusion[edit]

I just edited to reflect the idea that this template is not meant to list every clothing brand in existence but rather only brands that are the name of the actual designer. In time, this template could reflect only living designers. (Heroeswithmetaphors) talk 00:32, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

What is the rationale for only including living designers, as opposed to extant brands? - Ryk72 'c.s.n.s.' 17:15, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Because otherwise this navbox will become gigantic and bloated with every extant brand ever designed by any designer. Categories exist for that. (Heroeswithmetaphors) talk 22:13, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
@Heroeswithmetaphors: Apologies. To be clear, the question was not "why do we have inclusion criteria?" for which you have provided an excellent rationale; but was "why is living designers an inclusion criterion?". - Ryk72 'c.s.n.s.' 06:17, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
  • NOTE: a) If we are removing labels whose founders are not longer living, then we should also remove - Prada, Emilio Pucci, Sonia Rykiel, Versace, Missoni, Mouawad, Lacoste, Guy Laroche, Levi's, Gucci, Fendi, Fiorucci, Etienne Aigner, Laura Biagiotti, S. T. Dupont. b) If we are removing labels which are not eponymous, then we should also remove - Proenza Schouler, Mulberry, Escada, Akris, Ally Capellino, Dean and Dan Caten. - Ryk72 'c.s.n.s.' 06:34, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, and yes. Let's do it. (Heroeswithmetaphors) talk 17:08, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
