About this Event

So, you’ve decided you’re ready to launch your own fashion business, or you've recently launched but aren't seeing the traction you'd like. What are your next steps?

“How to Launch Your Fashion Business with Passion, Purpose & Profit” is a dynamic, actionable six-week course that will kick you into gear. We’ll show you how to develop your business plan, give you the ingredients for a winning collection, help you create a marketing strategy and provide the steps to get your product into your dream stores. And all this through the lens of sustainability and responsible business practices with free Professional Member access to The Sustainable Fashion Collective.

After six weeks, you'll leave with:
  • a financially sustainable business model
  • a clear idea of your target audience
  • an understanding of what makes a set of winning designs
  • feedback on your designs (optional)
  • a step-by-step sales strategy, with accompanying line sheets
  • a concise marketing plan ready to put into action.

On the fence? to receive more information, and read on for more details.

The course includes:
  • Pre-recorded videos with your course leaders, Charlie and Maria, that you can watch in your own time.
  • Downloadable workbooks to guide you through every step.
  • A weekly live call with Charlie and Maria to answer all your questions (recorded for those who can’t attend live).
  • Free access to the Sustainable Fashion Collective Professional Membership, including over 50 masterclasses and interviews with leading sustainability, for the course duration.
  • The opportunity to network and problem-solve with your peers.

The course content
Module One: Your Unique Selling Point

We'll help you understand your target audience and define a proposition that is entirely unique to your business. This will form the foundations of your brand story, which is so important, not just when you're first starting, but throughout the life of your business.

Module Two: Your Competitors

Easily overlooked, competitive analysis is one of the most critical steps of your business. This week you'll research and identify your competitors' weaknesses, and we'll help you turn these into your opportunities.

Module Three: Developing Your Collection

Now it’s time to design. Receive advice from a seasoned fashion designer and consultant about how to start the process. We’ll share the common pitfalls creatives make when they begin to design and help you develop a range that’s sure to sell.

Module Four: Your Sales Process

Now you’ve got your unique designs; it’s time to make those all-important sales. Together, we’ll identify the stores you want to sell to and share our winning techniques for getting in front of buyers to get your product on their shelves.

Module Five: Marketing Your Product

We guide you through the five essential marketing strategies to get visibility for your products and help keep them in demand.

Week Six: Catch up

The final week of the course is dedicated to finishing off the homework set from the five weeks prior. It offers a little leeway so you have time to catch up and reflect on all you’ve learnt so you can ask any additional questions. It’s also a valuable week for dipping into the Sustainable Fashion Collective content not covered by the course, such as manufacturing and ethical fabrics.

Who is this course for?

Pre-Launch Businesses

This course is ideal if you are thinking about launching or have recently started a fashion business and would like guidance on perfecting your sales strategy.

Existing Brands

This course is highly suitable for existing brands. If you’re unsure of your brand positioning or are struggling to get sales, we’ll make sure that all your ducks are in a row and give you advice and guidance on where you may be falling short and what you can do to improve.

Whatever stage of your business, you will need to be able to put the work in, in order to make the most out of the course. We recommend attendees are able to put aside 4 hours a week minimum, plus 1.5 hours for our weekly live call.

Accessible Globally

All content is provided online and live calls will be 2pm EDT (New York), 7pm BST (London), 8pm EST (Paris), 5am AEDT (Sydney)

Flexible Study

Apart from the weekly live calls, this course can be completed in your own time, so you can be in full-time employment and still attend. The live calls are not mandatory, but we recommend you join to get the most out of the course.

What else will you get?

Accountability - starting a business is often something that we put off. We will help you combat this by keeping you accountable weekly. You'll finish the six weeks and have made huge strides, and (so long as you've put the work in) you will have laid the foundations to launch your business and grow sales.

Reassurance - If you're worried your business idea won't work or can't understand why your existing business isn't converting to sales, we'll give you our no-nonsense opinions and help you to restructure.

Knowledge - No one knows everything. What's certain, is that with our two experts' breadth of experience, you will leave with more understanding than you started with.

Challenge - You may like the idea of challenging yourself to get started in six weeks. And we're not afraid to gently and respectfully challenge you either! We're keen to show participants different perspectives, tips and tricks so that you can move forward and find a better, more successful way to work.

Additional Questions

Are there hidden costs?

No. Once you’ve paid you will have access to the course information and Professional Membership of The Sustainable Fashion Collective for the duration of your six-week course. Once the course has ended, you can choose to continue your Professional Membership for £31.50 per month. (Don’t forget, however, there are other costs to consider when setting up a business, production, marketing and website development).

What do you need to complete the course?

  • A device with internet connection
  • A printer to print the downloadable workbooks (optional - you can complete these without needing to print)
  • Time to do the work - the course outcomes will have a direct correlation to the time you are able to put in (we recommend 4 hours minimum per week).

How many people are on the course?

To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to discuss their work and ask any questions during our weekly calls, there will be no more than 30 people on the course. We will be allocating space on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you'd like to participate, please don't delay in joining.

When do I need to decide?

The deadline for joining is Friday 29th October.

Who are these events for?   Anyone interested in design, particularly fashion and textiles. In these get-togethers, you'll learn new sewing skills, hear from the best about sustainable design practices and the fashion industry, and meet incredible, like-minded people.   Why did I start this group? At the core of all of my work at Offset Warehouse is my passion for helping the people who weave our fabrics, and to prevent any further environmental atrocities associated with textile manufacture. It's my goal to source the most beautiful, hand-crafted and fairly-sourced fabrics, trims and threads from across the globe, and sell from one to hundreds of metres at affordable but fair prices. Most importantly, you can feel good knowing exactly where your fabric has come from, and who has made it... But it's not enough! I want to teach as many people about working ethically. From home sewers to big name brands - if you're using fabric you should be doing much more. There are so many small changes we can make, which impact the lives of millions of textile and garment workers. I am so excited about the possibilities of this new group and have some amaaaazing things lined up for you, which I can not wait to share. Join us and learn new skills and get to know the best brands that are winning when it comes to sustainability, employee rights, fair trade and great style…
