Financing your fashion dream Part 1

OK, are you having fabulous visions of cat walking divas dressed head to toe in your clothes dancing in your head? Are you ready to build that fashion House, go national, make a fortune and live like royalty? All you need is the cash to get it started, right? Here is an option that might help.

PERSONAL SAVINGS:  This is perhaps the most reliable, yet overlooked source for funding your fashion dream.  Why? most people think that they cannot afford to start their clothing line on a modest income or savings account.  Truth is, nothing could be further from the truth.  We have helped more housewives and student designers to start their clothing line by setting a budget and a monthly pay plan that allowed them to develop their line over time.  By developing one or two styles at a time, you spread your start up costs over time, allowing you to come up with the money as your line is being created. So, what have we learned?  You dont need tens of thousands of dollars in the bank to launch your fashion dream.   Will it help, sure and we have those clients too.  However, our average clients come to us with less than $5k to work with and pay deposits over time as their samples lines are created.   In fashion, it's not how you start, but how you finish that counts.
