Running and growing a fashion business is not actually easy. You are taking the challenges related with the entrepreneurship in general and then adding a coat of trouble that only the fashion industry brings about-short run production, limited experience to financial education and market saturation being big fat ones. Addition with how you define success, let’s have a look at some major things that you cannot simply do if you want to achieve goals which you create for your fashion business as well as for yourself.
Avoid these few things if you want success in your business:
Spend your all times in the office/studio:
Pattern making, sketching, email replying, sewing, packaging, social media updating and other things are necessary to do in the studio and the office that the thought of leaving it for a little whole is our of the question. If you are spending all your time in your office that you have not time to meet the people and you are not expanding your community as well as you are not able to know those who are already in your community. It is recommended to close your computer and spend some to talk to the people who need to be a priority.
Do it individually:
If you are thinking to do it alone then you can’t do it alone. Because the fact is that we all need guidance, support, help, and education. And the most successful brand distinguishes and is not afraid to ask for whatever they require. And that is why, you need to connect to a network of equivalent designers who know that exactly what you are going through and can provide guidance, feedback, and lessons so that you can do your best in this industry.
Spend a few times on a lot of things:
Well, there aren’t infinite things to do on a daily basis for your company. The list might be all overwhelming and consuming. The most successful designers know that the work list will never be disappeared but it is their work to focus on the things that matter most to progress. It is advisable to select a few things and complete them well rather than trying to do it all.
Forget to help others:
Along with to build on the above point, it is also amazingly essential to help others. It can look like you have more to do on your own without helping others figure out what they are doing. However, the most successful brands know that supporting others is one of the major factors in achieving their own goals.
Getting nervous to take the calls:
This is a very important thing. Whatever the reason is, a lot of designers become nervous to sell. It might be something that simply doesn’t come easy and simple to you, you’d rather be designing, but whatever the reason, it doesn’t matter. A successful designer spends a lot of time on creating and imaging their sales plan. They start their preparation with a professional website, an attractive look book, an understanding of the outlet they are selling to as well as informative line sheets. They actually don’t depend solely on email pitches and they certainly do not allow the butterflies in their bellies to stop them from taking calls and walking into the stores they want to pitch.
