Work with me

Whatever stage of business you’re at, I’d love to help you get where you want to be. I offer a range of services and am specialised in taking products from initial ideas, through to production and selling. I work with both experienced brands and startups in the Womenswear sector and have a lot of experience with commercial fashion, swim and activewear.

Some of the services I offer are listed below and you can reach me here for more information, or for a quote.

Design and Trend Direction

I love working with both new and established brands on their designs. I’m able to work with your inspiration, or I can provide moodboards and creative direction for you, it’s up to you. I invest in a lot of trend resources, so clients don’t have to.

Education and Resources

A lot of my clients are totally new to fashion, or are fashion students without any real life industry experience. The fashion business is notoriously secretive and it can be hard to get insider information. Aside from 1-on-1 consulting sessions, I also offer the following;

  • Quick Start Guide ebook - more details here.

  • Fashion Startup online course - this programme takes you from idea through to production. Click here for more details.

  • Get Customer’s For Your Fashion Brand, online course - coming December 2018!

  • Writing; I’ve written educational pieces for multiple websites and publications. You can see examples by clicking here

  • In person training is also available at businesses and schools. Please get in touch for more details.
