Tips on Starting a Fashion Design Business
« on: April 05, 2015, 03:38:33 PM »
First and foremost, if you are thinking about starting your own fashion line, opening a boutique, launching an e-commerce site, or becoming an apparel wholesaler you must be into fashion and have a passion for not only designing apparel but being a businessperson. You canít be successful without a mix of both passions, they will compliment each other. :)
In addition, all successful fashion lines have a few of these things in common: competitive prices, a great selection of clothes and accessories, attractive marketing, or a niche. They must also have a catchy name, brand, or tag line. :-\
