    “To build a successful label, you’ll have to think like an entrepreneur from the start. That means understanding how a business works and putting together a plan that lays out short-term, medium-term and long-term goals. Once your company is up and running, build solid relationships with manufacturers, buyers, and investors by being consistently reliable and honest about what you’re doing.” – Hattie Crisell from @fashionista_com.

    “The concept of sketching designs was established around the late 1800s when design houses would hire artists to draw designs to be shown to clients (in this case individuals/customers). The design houses would work from the artists’ sketch to make clothing the client liked. This process saved money in the long run by introducing designs through illustration instead of showing a completed garment on a model to customers first.” – @IAm_Samata.

The comforting truth is that there is more than one way to get where you want to be.” – @IAm_Samata. Read more in the Fashion Designer’s Resource Book, Chapter 2: Venturing In.
