I would like to get to known in the fashion industry. How can I launch my line if I'm not known in the market?
I would like to launch my line in the fashion industry. I know how to sketch and sew, I can do all kind of women, men and children clothing. How can I start launching my line from home?
Hi Julio - I'd more more than happy to help you with this! Would you like to schedul a 15 minute call?
Julio, no offense, but you need serious styling and a major make over if this is your picture on here and if you want to make an entry into the fashion industry. If you are behind the biz, you have to give the look and confidence to your customers to buy from you. Look at Bernard Arnault of LVMH - not the best looking guy, but he's immaculately and so well put together, he paints the best picture for his brands - You have to put it in your mind that this is the industry that bases EVERYTHING on visuals and your photo here is dark and looks like you took it in your kitchen. I'm not saying you're going into high fashion, but ANYYTHING you do in fashion has to look good, and it all starts with you. So you want to be in fashion? Why am I telling you this if you work in it already? You need to take a good look at yourself and see the reasons why you want to do this - also saying you're working from home isn't going to help your cause on 7th Avenue. I'm available to help on consultation.
Great, Good Luck Julio. Showcase your products on Social Media. Start to Showcase your work on forums. Create a Web site (need any help let me know). Let me know what kind of Designs you do, I shall try to suggest you something or the other. It is a good start, do not let small little hurdles tell you otherwise.

Thank you all you guys for your great ideas , you really have inspired me with your ideas
You may want to try Fashion Star http://www.nbc.com/fashion-star . I know that it is a reality TV show, but it may help you if you can get on it.
Find a small local clothing store that is in line with your fashion design style. Ask them to take a few of your samples on consignment at no risk to them. Then they pay you when the designs sell. Then be sure to run an aggressive social media campaign to let friends and family the items are for sale at that location. Word of mouth and people wearing your designs will slowly grow. Then find another small store and it goes with out saying build a website in which fans can buy from you direct as well.
If you bring value to the market place, people will flock to you! Other than great designs, what do people want in your area? How can you provide it to them?
Julio, if your are planning to sell your line to the fashion industry you will need to target specific companies that you want to carry your line through a business development / lead generation campaign. Understanding you may not have the in-house resources or "know how" to do this, it can be outsourced to a company so you can focus on your core business.
you need to know who you are designing for and know where these people hang out have one exceptional garment and promte it there
local newspapers will always feature someting newsy if the product is sext enough and their is a story
otherwise do a celeb fitting, or weeeknd markets the liklihood of being a found designer in this gihjly comeptive environment is very unlikely so do the hard slog it is the only way
Another element to keep in mind as a business owner is to make sure you have your bases covered legally. Since you may be starting out as a one person show, be clear on your contracts, financial investments and taxes. It's best to have a law firm on call for all of your questions and concerns whether they be personal or business related. Some of the clients I work with have unlimited access to these areas I mentioned for less than $20 a month!
