Soompi Asian Fashion Portfoliio

It's always a risk of quality and style when purchasing off CCT. Those adorable models can really make the clothes more appealing but what will it look like on a normal girl for daily wear or on special occasions?

I think we should make our own collection. So any items you got off rowky, lemoncookie, gmarket, zipa, cct etc post the net image and an image with you modelling or just a picture of the item in natural lighting.

You can do direct purchases from companies or partake in a soompi survey. Note that some sites do not ship internationally out of asia.

3. What are soompi surveys and why would should I participate?

Sometimes sites have a minimum wholesale cost. eg. zipia can be about 300USD minimum. If you don't wish to spend that much and want only a few items you could participate in a soompi survey. A survey is when people pool into make the purchase minimum amount. Based on soompi rules, the survey starter must purchase all confirmed request items before collecting money from you.

Store Reviews
by dainanda123

This onle wholesale store offeres great  merchandise. It is on the pricy side. Generally speaking, purchasing from Zipia is like buying from stores like H&M, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21 and so on. Another good thing about Zipia is that it offers great clothing options not just for females, but have a great selection for the guys as well. Items from Zipia are nearly exact, if not exact to the actual stock picture. The clothes are made out of quality fabric, shoes are durable and the accessories are great too. With ordering shoes, you might want to size up or down depending on style. There is one thing that makes Zipia a little bit less grand, it's the minimum payment amount. You have to spend a minimum of 500 dollars.

Gmarket is also known as the Korean Ebay. It offers a lot of things. Since it is like ebay, we should be aware that the quality varies. Gmarket offers many different styles of clothing, and the fabric is great for most pieces. The shoes from Gmarket also great but can vary from seller to seller. If ordering, you may need to size up or down. Like Zipia, Gmarket's items look exactly like the stock picture. Since this site isn't a wholesale site, there's no spending minimum.What's to love about Gmarket is the prices!But, shipping may be a little high. You can find great pieces for cheap. The only downside to this site is that even though there is a English version, most of it is in Korean.

Wholesale dress
This is a wholesale store. It offers many different pieces of clothing for reasonable prices.The shipping is also reasonable. With Wholesale Dress, its like the luck of the draw. Items of clothing can look exactly like the stock photo, or end up being terrible. On clothing description for most items it states that there might be a difference in length. A lot of the times, the stock photo is a photo copied from actual brands, so the clothes that you might get aren't the actual thing, there just a remade version. It's really a hit or miss. Quality of the clothes vary.

    This is really smart image I'll be back to Upload up some pictures!


    I don't have the CCT photo. Overall I was disappointed in the quality, very cheap fabric and not very much detailing.

    Black Cardigan from a Taiwanese Auction Site, not the best craftsman ship, but i REALLY love the fit of it and its really slimming
  • kathykathy SoCalPosts: 1,804Friend of Soompi


    ^ I agree, I think this is a great idea!

    I've had to resell so many things from cct because the fit/sizes were all different from what they looked like =/

  • Rik-URik-U MontrealPosts: 307Member
    wow this is a great idea!
    I'm not asian but I love asian fashion and knowing what the real thing would look like is a big factor when you buy online.

    Awesome idea image I'm always really tempted to order from surveys but I'm scared the quality is crappy image
    This will come in handy image

    *EDIT* Maybe you should make a photobucket or something where you can organize the albums by shop/brand so its easier image

    this is an awesome idea!!!!
    and people should also state their weight and height too.
  • kikkiekikkie Girl. L.A., CaliforniaPosts: 1,808Member


    maybe you guys can also put some measurements of the clothing up too with the photos because their sizes vary and "freesize" is vague.

    ooooh very nice idea~!
    But I'm never buying from CCT Fashion again.
    Bought a belt and it eventually broke in half after just a couple of wears.
    I also bought a shirt...thinking it was like a dress/shirt...turns out to be just a long shirt and must be worn with pants or else you can see undies T_T
    Material was made out of calico =\

    Edit 25th Jan:
    Here's the photo of the belt. I couldn't find the photo of it online
    but you can see the break in the 2nd photo.

    That is a really good idea XD. I don't have a modelled pic but i do have one(but black in colour) of these side zipper sweater and the quality is great! I was really surprised too. It looks exactly like in the picture except for the thickness. I really love this.
