SOURCING FASHION FABRICS

Sourcing fabrics  for fashion start-ups can be quite challenging and time consuming.  But it is an extremely important area in which massive savings can be made. In the fashion business there is a great deal of competition. Every penny off the cost  is vital. And every penny off the cost is extra profit for you.

It is important though, that the start-up fashion entrepreneur does not necessarily look for perfection from the outset. If your perfect fabric costs £20 per metre, but you can purchase a good alternative for £5 per metre, you are probably well advised to get the cheaper fabric. Will your customer be prepared to pay the difference ? If your garment takes two metres of fabric, by the time it hits the shop that difference will be £90. Maybe  perfection will be worth it, but probably not.

It is often easier for the new fashion label to design around the material that is easily available than to try to match the fabric with the design. There are many good deals to be found on certain fabrics that can give you a great advantage over the competition simply because the fabric is so cheap. If you can find these fabrics and utilise them creatively you can be on to a winner.
