HOW TO SET UP A FASHION LABEL – OR NOT?
Welcome to “my fashion startup”. As I research the ins and outs of setting up a clothing brand in this wildly oversubscribed and saturated market, I’ll be blogging about my discoveries, successes and failures.
From sourcing pattern cutters to managing the production line and keeping a clear focus on accounts, there are a myriad of vital components that make up the establishment of a successful fashion business. While preparing to launch my own brand, I’ll be looking at each part of the puzzle in turn, relaying my own experiences and difficulties, and hopefully developing a network of like-minded individuals and sector leaders, to encourage a process of rapport and mentorship which is so vital in lifting small businesses off the ground.
Readers can also expect a weekly interview with an established designer, providing us with industry tips and encouragement!
