New UK website Beta Fashion creates clothing by committee. How it works: "Designers submit their ideas and, if they withstand judging by the label's professionals as well as the site's web community, have them produced and sold in limited editions at Beta Fashion's online store." Right now, you can vote on designs ranging from drapey cowl-necked dresses inspired by Japanese charcoal art to aggressively bare evening gowns inspired by Aaliyah, plus hundreds of different textiles.
