I’m starting a clothing brand , but would like to know from someone that’s already done the process .

I just got my sample garments from China , will be placing the bulk order once I finalize logo and name .

I would like to have a little more market data to see about how quickly things sell. Is there a resource I could use ? Thank you in advance !!

Im really trying to leave corporate world asap !

There are several questions you are going to need to be prepared to answer before you engage with a successful apparel retailer as a consultant/mentor.

As a brand & operations consultant (real hustle), most of my clients need to be able answer the following before I even consider deep diving into taking them onboard. These are also questions grant funding, investors and bank loan officers will also need answers to if you go from bootstrapping to raising capital.


QUESTIONS I RECOMMEND YOU HAVE ANSWERS TO:
Are you dropshipping or doing your own fulfillment?
Have you reviewed market reports on your target market demographics spending behaviors?
Have you tested pre-sale vs immediate purchase retail with a smaller sample of your target demographic (A/B testing)?
Have you tried crowd funding campaigns/market surveys for your launch to determine market appetite for your apparel brand?
What are the outcomes of your competitive comparative research?
What is your brand differentiator in order to secure your consumers attention & loyalty?
Have you engaged your local Chamber of Commerce for sales data? Reviewed Tax reports on your desired business sector?
How much of this information is currently captured in your Business Plan?



These questions can be overwhelming, but the sooner you have these answers the sooner you can determine where to invest your hard earned money, energy and focus💜

Good luck beloved
