Clothing design and manufacture


I'm a retailer and up until now have been selling on other companies goods. Because the margins are low and the product is not exclusive I want to start our own label. Any ideas on how to get together a designer and small runs manufacturer in the UK - and what to avoid?

Advice much appreciated!

I know full well how hard it is top break into the fashion market with you own label. I have experienced it all with my very own label which I set up in December of 2003 so please feel free to drop me an email and i'll try to help as best I can.

Either PM me from here or visit our site and get my email address from our contacts page.
