Sourcing of fabrics and trims is extremely important for any startup fashion business, whether on a large budget or a shoestring budget. Finding the right fabric at an affordable price can make or break any business. The secret is knowing where to compromise in order to get the best value for money. An extensive knowledge of suppliers willing to deal with small orders is necessary in order to achieve this. But it is also important to be able to know where to find special bargains. Often the fabrics available at the right price are not exactly what you are looking for, but the price is so important that compromise may be essential. Finding an acceptable fabric at half price will massively affect the profit margins.
