If you've been following me for a while, you might know that I've been writing a 'Basics 101' series for The Fashion Conversation. I've covered a range of topics which help new fashionpreneurs to learn about the industry, including where to start, how to hold a fit session and what you need to know about technical drawings. You can read all of those if you'd like here.
The fifth part of the series came about after a discussion with The Fashion Conversation editor, Kate, who was interested to learn more about how brands create their collections. The article talks about the surprising and little known truth; that great designs often start with great data. You can read 'Basics 101: Using Data to Grow Your Fashion Business' on The Fashion Conversation website, here.
