Having a fashion business is damn hard.
But it’s not impossible. You can do things differently.
The fashion industry is built on the idea of being exclusive; it feels like the answer to reaching success is some kind of secret. Well, we think that’s bull shit.
You don’t have to do it their way. Do it your way. Decide what you want, set your terms, and work really hard to get it.
StartUp FASHION is a support system and community on a mission to help independent fashion designers make a living doing what they love.
We believe that everyone deserves to have total control over every aspect of their life. And we believe that you can absolutely do this on your own terms. Don’t you?

How It All Started…
(A quick note from our founder)
I went to college for textile design and I loved it. I knew that once I graduated I wanted to continue to create things. In my head, I assumed that meant textiles.
I was wrong. But I didn’t know that then.
I finished up school and immediately started my own little line of hand-woven accessories, excited about the business I was about to launch.Then something happened.
I realized that I didn’t actually know the first thing about business.
This, I realized, was going to be a problem.
So, I started learning. A lot of reading, an embarrassing amount of trial and error, and years of working for and with professionals in as many sectors of the fashion industry as I could, led me to a place of understanding and knowledge about running a business. Then something else happened.
I realized that after all this time I didn’t actually want to be a designer. Whoops.
Instead, I found that I absolutely loved helping other people become successful designers. I had learned so much and wanted to share it. I totally understood what it was like to struggle through the process of starting a fashion business, having nowhere to go to get help and answers.
And that’s what brought me to StartUp FASHION. What began as a blog where I shared my thoughts and experiences within the industry, turned into a place that other emerging and independent designers visit every day to get help.
From there it all started to come together. I found other people who believed in my mission and we, each in our own way, work to make StartUp FASHION a success every single day.
I love that I get to spend my days working for myself, from anywhere in the world. I love that I get to build something from the ground up, working with super creative people on a daily basis.
And most of all, I love that I get to help you do exactly the same thing.
