Hi, I would say the best thing you can do is to get networking - you need to meet other people in the Fashion industry who are in your local area. The best way to do this is to get work experience. Apply for an internship or volunteer at a local fashion design company, and use the opportunity to learn more about the industry and meet people who can help you - you might even find your ideal business partner. I have actually just written an article with what i think are some useful tips on networking for new designers, have a read if you like: Fashion Networking
Best of luck!
