WHAT CAN I DO FOR START-UPS?
You have an awesome idea for a garment or collection. It’s your dream to have your own fashion brand. But you don’t really know how to go from here? I can help you to make your fashion dream come true. I have helped many people to start their fashion company, guiding them on everything the need to know about retail and the fashion industry.
I know what it is like to have a dream (even though you have no experience in the field) and to be willing to work hard to make it happen.
Finding a designer is a good place to start when you are thinking about starting your own brand. What can I do for your start up? I can:
- Organise a brainstorm session in which we discuss deeply into detail what your vision for your brand is.
- Help you make your idea visual by creating a concept.
- Go over your design ideas and add on from my point of view.
- Create sketches.
- Make technical drawings and tech packs for your garments.
- Help find suppliers
- Advice and source materials.
- Create print designs.
- Manage contact with suppliers about the technical side of production.
- Comment on samples.
- Bring you into contact with other professionals that could help you make your dream come true. Such as: buyers, manufacturers, pattern cutters, seamstresses, photographers, models, media and store owners.
What to expect?
As a person, I am easy to talk to and direct in my communication. I am friendly and like to have a laugh. I am willing to explain anything about the fashion industry as long as I think you are listening and willing to learn.
The first thing we do after you have contacted me, is that we make an appointment for a half hour zoom call. This call is free.
In this call, I would like to find out your story; What is it that you want to create? Why? What have you done in the past and what is your vision for the future? Also, what do you expect of me?
After our online meeting, I will get back to you by email. In this email I will let you know if I think I can help you and give a proposition about a collaboration.I will take on a job if I see something that excites me and if I feel I can really help you.
I am doing creative work and sometimes it is hard to make estimate a price. I am always open about the costs of a project and I will explain what I can do for you. If I think we are going over budget during a project. I will always let you know in advance. Before we start working together, I always ask for a payment of the first 10 hours in advance.
Ok, I hope I haven’t scared you too much, I just like to be clear. If you think I am the right match for your project, please contact me and let’s have a chat!
