Fashion Business Advice
Forty Years Experience
(045). With forty years experience, providing expert fashion business advice for startups on a budget has always been a very important part of our job.
In recent years we have found more and more fashion entrepreneurs coming to us in desperate need of help and advice. Many have already lost thousands in the notoriously difficult fashion industry, whether manufacturing in the U.K. or abroad.
As our job has taken on an increasing consultancy role, we have found that more of our time has involved researching suppliers, dealing with factories and consulting with clients.
Professional fashion business advice can tend to be costly for many startups trying to run on a small budget. But without the right advice, unfortunately they are destined to fail.
“The secret of business is to know something that nobody else does”
The G.B. Brand
We are great believers in the G.B. brand, and in U.K. manufacturing. We also believe that the aspiring fashion entrepreneur should just get on and do it – With the right advice and a certain amount of preparation of course.
But the best way to learn is to get on and do it. You will make mistakes, but you need to keep those mistakes small and to learn from them. Know where you need to spend money and where to save.
You need to know how to work with the pattern cutter and the factory to achieve the best possible results. you need to know so many things in order to run a successful fashion business. It takes hundreds, or maybe thousands of hours to research how to run a fashion business.
If you have the money you will just employ a team of skilled people to do everything for you. But many of our clients are running their fashion business part time, while still working full time. they are on a limited budget, but dont have the time to spend to research everything thoroughly.
We work with some very experienced specialist pattern cutters and sewing machinists that enables us to devote more time to work as fashion business consultants.
Fashion Startup Workshops.
We run a very popular fashion startup workshop for anyone starting out as a fashion business entrepreneur who would like to learn the ins and outs of starting and running a fashion business.
