Hi Kate: I just started working as an editor for a new fashion publication based in the UK called Daisydessy magazine. Would there be any way I could interview you for a feature? Maybe also feature a few of your designs if possible? You can visit our blog which will tell you a little bit more about us. www.daisydessy.blogspot.com.We are hoping to get this great magazine going as soon as possible. Please email me at email@example.com if this opportunity interests you. Thank you so much!!
How enlightening your profile is, I particularly like your comment, that you admire people who overcome adversity (Snap) positive thoughts! I work in Central London, I also have some clients in Surrey. I would be interested to talk as I have a Mother of the Bride service, maybe we can do some things.
Hey good luck with the new line just keep focused, have no fear it will be great.
Yes...as a matter of fact I just did an article on an international designer in the UK. I'm not sure if you've heard of him- Danny Sullivan? Founder of Irregular Choice line of shoes. I would love to hear more about your designs. Thanks!
Started my business January of last year. Networking can be online or meeting with local wedding businesses to introduce yourself. In my case, I make custom made wedding dresses so I join shows in the area and network with other show vendors. Submitting your work to publications can be tricky. If you can afford a PR company, I suggest you hire one. Publications receive a lot of request so it is a full time job just trying to get published. I got interviews and magazine features after I joined a fashion week. People I work with, like models and photographers also recommend me to publications they work with in the past, which is really nice.
Good luck, it's a lot of work but it's worth it.
