Hi Everyone!

I'm trying to start my own swimwear line for girls. So far I've purchased the domain name, created social media accounts, sketched my designs and reached out to two manufacturers in Bali. Now I'm not really sure what my next step should be! I'm thinking it should be to purchase samples? I'm scared to waste time and money by doing the wrong thing!
Thank you for your time and any advice you have to give! xo

Thanks!

Hello Gigi,

Congratulations!!! starting a business can be pretty overwhelming and scary but congrats on taking the first steps in making it happen. As Rashed said, you should have a solid business plan in place so it gives you a direction of where you should be going for, at least, the next two years if not the next 5 years.

Next, sit down and define your brand. When I say your brand I don't mean the logo. A brand is the experience and the promise you give to your customers. What do you want people to think when they get in contact with your swimwear line? What is the feeling you would like to emulate? When you have your branding process done, it will be easier for you to laser focus on your ideal customers and to make strategic decisions in the future.

Then, define your target market. This is primordial because it will define everything about your brand (e.g. What you say, do, how you say it etc...) do a throughout research on this. It's really important to know your target market so that you can talk to them directly. You cannot sell to everyone otherwise you'll sell to no one.

Do your manufacturers specialize in swimwear? Do you have everything sorted out with them? Do they provide everything? Do you have to give them anything for production? What is the minimum order? etc.... I presume here that you have all the questions sorted out since you mentioned you "reached out" to them already.

Now that you have your target market and business plan in hand, you need to execute on your marketing and PR strategies. This will get people to your door and increase your brand awareness.

PS: Make sure that all your sketches are done professionally in adobe in design or any other design software so that all the details are given to your manufacturer. Also, when you receive the sample you should have a fit session with a model to make sure that everything looks perfect before ordering more.

Thanks for the awesome advice! Sounds like I have a lot of work ahead of me! 

No problem Gigi! don't hesitate to ask me any question, I will be more than happy to help! most importantly, have fun.
