Elizabeth Formosa, founder and director of Fashion Equipped, a business consultancy specialising in all aspects of the fashion business, and a 20+ year veteran of the Australian fashion industry, has launched an Online Programme for fashion business start ups.
I have worked with Elizabeth personally in my own start up phase of KaPow Kids, and let me tell you, she is amazing! I wouldn't be where I am today without her mentoring.
It can be so hard to know where to start. You love fashion and you want to start your own label, but how do you go about it? So many brands close down very quickly after starting, so its important to learn as much as you can about the business side of fashion to avoid failing.
Here are some of the modules Elizabeth teaches you, all in the comfort of your own home, which makes it so easy when you have little ones:
The online programme modules are broken into ten segments:
- Plan It
- Fund It
- Brand It
- Develop It
- Price It
- Source It
- Sell It
- Market It
- Formalise It
- Run It
I am currently doing the new Fashion Equipped online programme and even though I have been in fashion for 4 years now, I am finding it so helpful. If it sounds like something you'd be interested in too, check out this link to find out more:
