SFD046: How to Authentically Engage with Your Audience for Fashion Entrepreneurs

March 26, 2018

As fashion creatives, we think if we come up with the world’s most brilliant design…it will just sell itself.

It’s not often we literally go this far behind the scenes of the fashion industry on the podcast. But when the Outdoor Retailer trade show landed in my backyard (Denver), I knew I had to show up with my recorder to capture impromptu podcast interviews. Now, if I’m honest, doing this made me pretty anxious… You see, schmoozing in real life makes me […]

February 05, 2018

If you have no fashion industry experience, it can feel really daunting to try and start your own clothing line. Where do you source materials? How do you find factories and manufacturers? How do you sell your line to retail shops? But if you go slow, do your research, and have some patience, you’ll discover you can get […]
