Are you thinking about creating an online clothing store?  Here are a few resources of possible interest.

Their cost-effective technology platform makes it possible for you to control the content, functionality, and look and feel of your online store.  eBay Inc. is a global leader in eCommerce with a wealth of experience and resources in commerce-related technologies.  Magento for Fashion: Most eCommerce solutions are one-size-fits-all, but your business is unique.

3DCart After years of building custom eCommerce solutions for medium to large businesses, their founder Gonzalo Gil, thought he could compile many of the most requested eCommerce features into a simple and affordable shopping cart.
