29andSeptember Studio helps small and startup fashion labels to succeed in their business. I offer 1-on-1 help with designs, production and consulting, alongside courses and free articles on the blog.
The Studio was set up in June 2016 and at the time of writing, has helped over 100 small and startup brands. All of my services are tailored to each brand, so for some working together means taking their very first steps into the fashion industry, while for others it’s all about scaling up and growing their business. Many clients have no prior experience in the fashion industry, so it’s not a problem if you need guidance and explanations of different parts of the process.
The Studio is really flexible and I’ve worked with some clients on small projects and others on complete help from initial idea, through to production and sales strategy.
More recently, I’ve also added online courses to my offering, as I’m often booked months in advance for 1-on-1 work and courses allow clients to get instant access to the help they need.
Personally, I have a strong passion for sustainability and spend a lot of time learning about sustainable techniques, fabrics and options, to help clients build successful brands, that are future ready and don’t harm people, animals or the environment.
There’s free articles on sustainability on the blog, along with topics like ‘how to start a fashion brand’, ‘how to grow your fashion brand’ and explanations of common industry processes/terms. You can head over to the blog via this link.

Hi, I'm Vicki. I have 14 years experience within the fashion and textile industry and work with clients on a range of projects; from design an prints to production management and costings.
Through different roles I've been able to gain an in depth understanding of the fashion industry as a whole, from initial concept through production and to marketing, merchandising and selling. Even if I'm only working on a small project for a client, for instance a design project, I feel this 'across the board' experience helps me to deliver a better product, as I know how to create something both aesthetically pleasing as well as commercially viable.
I worked within the industry for 12 years before branching out on my own and creating 29andSeptember Studio. During my time in industry I worked with brands both large and small, across England, Australia and New Zealand.
I love travel to get inspiration for new projects and enjoy creating new concepts for customers. I’d say I’m different from traditional designers though, as along with creating designs, I like to see them through and therefore I’m always thinking about production and marketing when I design - a unique design is amazing, but it has to sell too. The fashion industry is a business, after all!
I'm always happy to answer any questions, please feel free to get in touch here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
I’m thrilled to have maintained 100% positive feedback across all of the areas that I work in. You can view some recent reviews below and click on the picture to enlarge the text.
