While there are lots of different ways entrepreneurs have used to go from idea to market, HERE IS WHAT WORKS BEST.
The first 3 steps to get your fashion product to market:
1) Work with me.. Private Consulting if you’re looking for a recommendation, consider my course for start-ups. $1,000.00 per day.
2) You need to make sure there’s a true market for what you want to design. We will research stores, speak with owners/and or buyers. We will ask , “What is it you would love to buy for your store, but you cannot find it in the marketplace?” Listen to what they say and keep good notes. We will pitch them your idea as well and see if they will give us honest feedback.
Online research: What are people searching for? How is your product compare to it and are people looking for what you want to produce?. Compare these searches. A) “XXX for XXX” turns up 12,600,000 results. B) “XXX for XXX” gets just 547,000 results. My suggestion:Pick “A” and then perhaps, narrow it down to an even tighter niche within the XXXXXXX.
3) Make a sample (prototype)–If you feel there’s a market out there for your product, it’s time to get a sample made. There are many, many different ways to do this but I’ll stick with the cheapest, easiest way for now. Assume you only want a working prototype so you can show other people your idea in the flesh. First, you need a good sketch of what you want to make – starting with one item only. If you cannot sketch at all, call a local college and find a student who can do it for you.
After you have a good rendering, you can take this to get a pattern and a sample made. You will need an industry pattern maker and sample maker who knows how to make prototypes that can be used for production, not just one-off samples. They are very different. Sew yourself perhaps one. You should always know how that garment is put together.
Following these 3 steps will help you to know if a full product launch is a good idea. If you need help finding out if your idea makes financial sense – will you have the margins to make money, what are common pitfalls in your niche, how much will this business cost you to start.
And if you want to learn the process of starting a clothing line, step-by-step, I offer an intensive online (do at your own pace) course for Startups.
