I know you have REALLY high standards for what you call Fashion.
You know in your heart you’ve got some fresh ideas that’d really make an impact, but they need to be done right.
And if you're looking for a place to start, look no further: before starting my own label, I worked with Fashion students, up-and-coming designers and complete newbies - I still do.
I offer three services that'll rescue you from Google hell:
1. Subscription plans
For years, I've been helping small labels and total newcomers polish their ideas and get them into Tech Packs.
And for years I've seen most of them flop, but now that I'm building my own label, I can confidently tell you:
There's a whole lot more than Tech Packs standing between you and your clothing line.
Yes, Fashion can be very fast-paced, but that doesn’t mean there aren't steps to follow and a diverse ecosystem of many professionals working to create, mass produce and advertise every new collection.
And that's why instead of Tech Packs, I now work as your Friendly Fashion Geek on the side.
I'll dedicate 1h30/week for you;
We'll communicate over email most of the time to avoid those long corporate-style meetings that go nowhere;
You'll let me know what you want to make, and I'll work independently, creating templates, researching materials and finishings, coming up with ways to improve your designs...
I'll also suggest resources for you to learn the technical stuff that's relevant for you, develop your label's concept, Marketing etc;
The price: €169/month
* Minimum 3 months = average time for polishing your designs, doing Tech Packs, start talking with manufacturers, order sampling, then receive the first prototype.
Pay in full = €450 (€57 off)
2. Portfolio advice
This is a special offer for Mature students & New/newish graduates.
A.k.a. the people trying to figure out if they should do the same course as So-and-so who’s working at Such-and-such famous brand in Paris.
- We'll have 2 to 3 tutorials per week, 15 - 20 minutes each - just like you'd have at a top Fashion school;
- You'll work independently and tell me what your goals are;
- I’ll also ask for advice from my friends in different courses or who’s worked in Fashion brands you like;
The price: €49/month
* Minimum 3 months, with the possibility to take one gap month in-between.
3. One-off Mentorship call
Have you already:
- made Pinterest boards for your first collection but never tried any of those ideas?
- spent hours on Google, Quora and Reddit, but can't figure out what's reliable and what's fluff?
- downloaded all the free ebooks you could find, read them once, highlighted some stuff... and never opened them again?
- read countless interviews with your favourite designers but can't piece together all the steps to get where they are?
And last but not least...
- DMed some Instagram hot shot, or a friend of a friend of a friend working at a cool brand, casually threw in some compliments and said the biggest turnoff of all times: I'd love to have a chat?
...but you're still stuck?
