If you love Fashion, are great on the sewing machine and have some fantastic ideas, take a look at the Clothing market. There are more people than ever making their own Clothes especially from recycled materials and if you are interested in this market but don’t know where to start, the first step is to find your Niche.
If funds are low and you are working from home, it’s always best to have just a couple of designs and decide what market you want to work within. This could be Children’s Clothes, Maternity Wear or even Hair accessories.
Websites are easy to set up and you can use templates off the internet which will allow you to have a simple online shop to sell your items through, you must also be prepared to showcase your items at markets and stalls for now to get your items seen. Also make the most of social media and advertise your products online. It’s also a really good idea to take advantage of local selling platforms such as School fayres and local markets.
The Fashion market is a competitive one but there are now more independent fashion designers than ever who go it alone and they do this by doing what they love, having just a few designs and marketing them any way they can. If your Fashion items are popular, word of mouth will spread and this is a powerful form of advertising.
Always be true to yourself and your products and choose a niche which you enjoy, keep your design list short to start with and you could do incredibly well. Fashion blogs are also on the rise especially for independent fashion designers, documenting your journey and at the same time advertising your Clothes is a great way to get followers.
