And that’s what this blog is. A fashion business mentorship of sorts. An
open book on how I started my business, and what it takes to run it from
wholesale to retail: fabric sourcing, sales, finances, customer service,
marketing, season planning, line sheets, photoshoots, runway shows and
beyond! I am not claiming to be an expert; I learn something new every day. But I
have experience to share with you, and a decent track record of success. So I
invite you to be my students. I will share with you all I know and I invite you
to ask questions along the way.
Welcome to The Fashion Business Mentor.
BUT! The blog is taking a new turn. It is just as important to me to showcase the amazing design out there as it is for me to share tips to help your business succeed. I will accomplish this in 2 parts:
1. I know I don't have all the tips and advice you need so I am compiling a list of resources and I am following some other blogs that I plan to collaborate with to bring you amazing content. I plan to build a community of resources to share with you.
2. I am working on ways to help your product get seen. I am launching an online magazine this fall that will feature only small independent designers in really beautiful ways. I will be working on ways to use my fan base to build exposure for brands that follow me. Through designer spotlight, flash deals on products and giveaways.
So those that have been with me the whole way. Thank you. And to those that are new, welcome to my community. A community of designers and mentors and a sharing of resources to help you succeed.
