Hi there,

I am in the early stages of starting an e-shop specifically for the shorter ladies, (up to 5''3). Being a short woman myself I know that there are limited supplies of consumer garments for the shorter woman. Some websites and shops have a selection of petite clothing but it is usually very limited. My goal is to eventually provide a wide selection of petite clothing that is of a high quality and up to date with fashion trends. To start off with I need to find a wholesaler(s) or manufacturer(s) who product petite clothing so that I can market and sell on my own website.

As stated, I am in the early stages so am just in the middle of building my website, but need to find relevant products for my business. To start off with I do not want to have to buy in large bulk, this will come with time, I need to find a supplier who will allow me to buy in smaller bulk or single unit quantities.

Products I am interested in stocking are trousers, maxi/midi skirts and dresses, longer blouses and tops that can sometimes make shorter ladies look stumpy. (myself being one of those!) Longer jackets and coats that would normally reach the knee but on us they come just too long!

Please, any advice or help would be much appreciated!
