Hi I am looking for a Fashion industry professional who can give me some advice on setting up a fashion trend forecasting business. I believe I have the talent and creativity required to make this business work but am really struggling with where to start – I would really love some help / advice with finding a web designer who understands the industry, someone who can help me locate suitable images; (Getty, shutterstock have proven to be a dead end) and most importantly somebody to bounce ideas off!!!
Any suggestions greatly welcomed!

Siobhan - thank you for the e-mail you sent to me. Yeah, I do not think that Getty, Shutterstock etc., would be too happy to assit you. Basically, you would be getting into the same business that they are already invloved in (essentially competition). I tried to develop a site for photos called the fashion week photos website. I bought many photos and also was provided with many from designers and photographers. I simply lacked the time to keep up with building the site. Hopefully I will get back to it in the future.
I suggest you try the fashion trend forecasting page to find other resources. You can see the services that they provide and possible learn from what they have done.
