What You Should Consider Before Launching A Fashion Brand

Creative Director and Editor-in-Chief of FOXYLAB NEW YORK.

Many designers don’t create newness anymore. We are living in the era of styling, and nowadays, fashion is all about mixing and matching. Therefore, it seems natural that many big fashion designers are digging into the archives of their houses—those lucky enough to head a brand with a long history.

To illustrate, during a recent men’s show of Givenchy, the artistic director, Matthew M. Williams, used the word “archives” repeatedly to describe the looks backstage. Furthermore, brands like Dior, Valentino and Steve Madden have used their extensive archives of fashion pieces to showcase and take inspiration from.

Makeup artist fulfills her dreams with chocolate shop

“That was big for me,” Mills said. “They actually reached out to me. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to cover the vendor fee, but we worked something out. It made a big difference. I was busy that whole weekend. We kept getting close to running out of everything. That kind of pushed me to try to get my own store.”

Mills enlisted the help of Detroit-based brand marketing firm Ask Jennyfer, owned and operated by Jennyfer Crawford-Williams. Crawford-Williams through her Corktown-based business helps small businesses like Mills’ better market themselves. In 2021, Mills participated in Market Fridays at downtown Detroit’s Cadillac Square, an event organized by Crawford-Williams that gives local farmers and small businesses a place to showcase their wares.

Crawford-Williams is proud of what Mills has accomplished.

A Shetland-born jewellery designer has relocated her business back home from London in a boost for the islands’ economy.

Karlin Anderson is a creator of bespoke high-end jewellery inspired by Shetland’s rugged landscape and culture.

She moved to Glasgow in 1994 for education before moving to London in 2004 and founding Karlin Anderson Jewellery Designs in 2008.

In 2019, Karlin began seeking a greater work-life balance and decided to move back to Shetland.

She juggled running her business full-time in London while seeking a new base for her business in Shetland.

Karlin said: “It is easy to feel isolated when running your own business, especially in such a rural setting.

“Having worked in the jewellery district of Hatton Garden in London, I had built a strong support network and I wanted to be able to build a similar network here in Shetland.”

She sought support from Business Gateway and secured

A Shetland-born jewellery designer has been expanding her business after relocating it to the islands from London.

Karlin Anderson, who has been making jewellery inspired by Shetland’s landscape and culture since 1994, was helped with the relocation by taxpayer-funded advice service Business Gateway. Funding from Shetland Islands Council’s economic development grant scheme helped cover the costs of renovating her workshop and purchasing manufacturing equipment.

Ms Anderson, whose main studio is next to the beach in the village of Hoswick, highlighted the part her family was playing in the expansion of the business, and flagged the boost to sales during the tourist season from independent travellers and cruise-ship passengers.
