Gameday Couture

gameday coutureKurt and Shawnna Fedderson pitch Gameday Couture, a line of college licensed fashions for the female fan, in episode 613. The Feddersons describe Gameday Couture as “classic and traditional women’s fashion with a contemporary twist.” Shawnna was frustrated by the lack of women’s fan apparel, so she created the Gameday Couture fashions to fill the void.

They currently license over thirty college teams (mostly big-time football schools) and they are actively seeking more college licenses every day. They work with the schools when designing their fashions to assure the school’s brand is positively and accurately reflected in their clothing. The designs range from bedazzled tees to scarfs to sweaters and more. The clothing isn’t just team jerseys in pink!

Gameday Couture also does private labeling for high schools and smaller colleges on a case by case basis. They say they’d like to pursue professional sports licenses for their line, which would certainly ramp up their sales quickly. They are likely looking for a Shark to help them navigate licensing and for cash to fund production.

Can Gameday Couture fashion a deal with a Shark?
