The Latest Trend: User-Generated Clothing

Check out this interesting post from DailyFinance:

A t-shirt that puts a wacky and macabre spin on the iconic V-J Day photo from World World II is selling like hotcakes these days.

While the famous Life magazine shot depicts a sailor kissing a nurse amid the celebration that erupted in Times Square when the war ended, the Z-Day tee features a zombie taking a passionate bite out of his lady love amid a shuffling horde ofNight of The Living Dead-style creatures.

But the $20 T-shirt wasn't picked for distribution by some high-powered fashion buyer at a big retail chain. Already in reprint, the Z-Day tee is available on Threadless.com because the site's shoppers decided it should be in the product line up.

Step aside, fashion designers and retailers: Web sites devoted to selling user-generated -- or "crowd-sourced" -- clothing are proliferating, enabling shoppers to take product design and selection into their own hands.
