Many people have taken the time during the UK lockdown to take up new hobbies or even start a new business. I have seen lots of people wanting to start their own fashion business but they just don’t know where to start. It can be hard if you have no where to turn to for guidance.

I wanted to share with you some tips I have put together on how to start a successful fashion/ clothing business without breaking the bank with additional start up fees and being able to take it slowly.
The first thing you want to do is pick a name and design a simple logo, this can be done on Canva or you can often find free websites that you can create a logo on. You can then sign up to an online store website to manage your shop or sell your products on Etsy or Ebay if you don’t want to set up your own website.
You may want to start off selling wholesale products to get into the swing of managing online sales before you venture into selling your own designs. A good place to start would be to find a reputable supplier of wholesale shoes online where you can get your stock from.
This would give you a great range of shoes too ok sell on your website or online shopping account and means that you have a guide price of what to sell things for when you want to start selling your own designs too.
One way you can raise some money to get yourself started is by setting up a kickstarter account. You could offer a free item or accessory to anyone that donates to a kickstarter fund and promote it all over your social media.
Have you ever thought of starting your own fashion brand?
