The Fashion Industries Favorite Business Network ...

Hi everyone

I am hoping to start my own ladies fashion clothing line. I do not have any prior experience or qualification in the industry, but I have a passion for modest fashion. I have designed my clothes based on existing concepts. Over the years I have received a lot of positive feedback which has led me to start this venture.

As I am new in the industry, I would be extremely grateful if I can get advice on:

1. How to set up a fashion label;

2. How to find a manufacturer that will cater to small minimum order quantities - I plan to start with 10 designs and each will have 15 pieces. Hence the initial order will be for 150 pieces;

3. The manufacturer should have their own pattern cutting service as I will only be able to provide pictures and comments on what needs to be changed in the designs. I am currently unable to provide sketches;

4. How does one go about launching a brand successfully?

5. How to ensure customer needs are identified and met over the long run?

Thank you all so much in advance. I hope to hear from you all soon.

Since you want to set up a private label clothing line, your strategies needs to be completely different from the other retailers and small businesses. Foremost, you should find an OEM manufacturer; a manufacturer who offer private label bulk. See what kind of clothes does their portfolio includes and if it matches your needs.

Regarding small order quantities- different manufacturers take whole different paths. So you really need to shoot them a mail to make enquiry about your requirements.

About ‘launching brand successfully’, it depends on many factors- like your location, your clothing line up, your target audience and more. You can plan several internet marketing strategies by yourself in the initial stage; but as your business grow, it is better to seek professional help.

Here’s a link to one of the manufacturers you can begin with - http://www.oasisuniform.net/supplier/formal-uniform/women-formal-un... or email us for more assistance webmaster@oasisuniform.net

Hi Emaan,

I hope you have managed to make some progress with starting your clothing line. I am not sure how far you have got but thought I would reply to your questions anyway.

First I have to ask where are you based? This is going to have an impact on the replies.

1. How to set up a fashion label;

This depends on where you are located as mentioned above.

First you will need to decide on a name for your clothing line. Once this is done you are going to have to register the name you have chosen as a trademark. This is usually an easy process and does not cost much. Depends on where you are as each country is different but Google, "registering a trademark" and go to the official result.

The most important thing is to make sure you have chosen the right name that does not have any negative connotations and there is not another clothing line with the same or similar name.

2. How to find a manufacturer that will cater to small minimum order quantities - I plan to start with 10 designs and each will have 15 pieces. Hence the initial order will be for 150 pieces;

The best option here is to locate a factory that is either close to you or at least in the same country preferably that will do sampling runs. This is going to make the project much easier to manage.

You might pay more for the garments but at least you will get your products made and be able to get started.

3. The manufacturer should have their own pattern cutting service as I will only be able to provide pictures and comments on what needs to be changed in the designs. I am currently unable to provide sketches;

Might not be the best option to be honest.

You are already looking at small quantities so you might be better getting a freelance pattern cutter to make your patterns. If you have spec sheets you might be able to make your patterns digitally.

If you are not able to do the sketches make sure you are clear on what you want from the images you are sending out otherwise you are going to get a lot of questions from the factory what will absorb a lot of time.

4. How does one go about launching a brand successfully?

Start with your own circle of friends, family and contacts. Also go online with a simple website and use social media to gain traction. As you grow you can develop.

5. How to ensure customer needs are identified and met over the long run?

This will come naturally - trust me. As you start to get customers you will interact with them and understand how the process works. I think this is the least of your concerns in the short term. Get your clothing made and ready for sale.

How to look after your customer needs will come!

If you have any other questions let me know.
