Starting a fashion business

Starting a fashion business? How we can help from the very start

Breaking into the fashion industry is never easy, but every single one of the iconic superstars of the trade started with nothing but a dream.

Vivienne Westwood started by selling her own handmade jewellery on a street stall. Gianni Versace began by sewing seams in his mother’s dress shop.

From Coco Chanel to Calvin Klein, the biggest fashion designers have started from scratch.

Today, with social media marketing, easy and cheaply sourced material from across the globe, and online selling, starting a fashion business has never been easier.

Why now is a good time to follow your dream

If you want to take the plunge and start your own fashion business there are many reasons why now could be the right time.

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has brought the world to its knees, but in even the darkest times, there is always a ray of light.

An economic downturn can result in a range of unexpected opportunities for entrepreneurs, with many people finding they have the time to plan their business success.

It may sound heartless, but with so many businesses failing because of the pandemic, there is less competition out there, as well as more talented people looking for work.

Interest rates are lower with banks more willing to lend money to try and kickstart the economy again.

Many of the biggest names in the world began during recessions, including Burger King, FedEx, and Microsoft.

How we can help with starting a fashion business

Starting a fashion business on your own is scary, so it makes sense to ask for help.

We can be there for you from the very start!

Consultation

We understand that no two businesses are the same, so we take the time to get to know your hopes, dreams, and aspirations to create solutions that work for you and you alone.

We strongly believe that a business won’t succeed unless there is a strong why behind it. Once we figure out your why then we can get on with the business of designing your new, unstoppable brand!

Design

Our product design is influenced by our work with some of the leading European clothing brands, and our technical and production experience delivers a consistently high-quality product.

We know how design works, especially the psychology of it and how things like colour can make a difference when it comes to marketing.

Manufacturing

Our people on the ground are what make the difference. We have partners all across Asia and the Pacific, with strong business relationships that have continued for years.

We speak the local languages, understand the local business cultures, and deliver solutions that work for you, getting your products made in a cost-effective, quick, and ethical way.

Our manufacturing partners are required to comply with high expectations of ethical standards and meet leading industry quality systems and processes.

Supply

The supply chain is often the weakest link in a fashion business, but we’ve got you covered here.

With a global network of suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers, all working together, we can handle the stress, demand, and logistics for all businesses, small and large.

This pandemic is a great example of how we are able to adapt to sudden and drastic changes in the supply chain.

Our business model is lean and responsive, with a very good team of people spread across the globe. We don’t have multiple layers of hierarchy, and in times of uncertainty, it’s the flat businesses that thrive while hierarchical business dies.

Continuing support

We measure our success not just by the products we create, but just as importantly, by the relationships we build with our clients.

We value open communication, carefully managing each aspect of your project, from design to delivery.

We are not a business that points you in the right direction and leaves the rest to you. At every stage of the proceedings, you can count on us to help with anything you need.

Start your new fashion business with our guidance

From small, independent boutiques to large, international companies, we have helped dozens of businesses flourish in the fashion industry.

From actualising your brand’s why to designing a logo, through to finding the best manufacturers and suppliers, and onto the end of the process like customer support and billing, we’re here to help you at every stage.

We work with some of the biggest names in the business, but our unique, hands-on approach also gives small designers the personal touch that they would usually only get with local suppliers.

With our infrastructure already in place, we make transitioning from an independent designer to a global business a realistic possibility, and now is the best possible time to start the ball rolling.

The Covid crisis won’t last forever, the world will open back up again eventually.

The question is – do you want to be ready to take advantage or will you wait until it’s too late?
