Helping Independent Fashion Brands Create an Awesome Marketing Action Plan!
StartUp FASHION has launched StartUp SESSIONS, fashion business consulting for independent fashion brands that need help with creating an amazing marketing action plan in order to share their business with the whole wide world.
Starting a fashion label is an exciting and scary adventure. You have the creativity, the vision, and the talent. You go through the harrowing early stages of sourcing your materials, creating your samples, and developing a website. Now, if only you could figure out how to get people to actually visit your website, engage, return, and eventually buy!
We founded StartUp FASHION to help designers launch their businesses on a limited budget. However, we have come to realize that some (if not all) of you would really love some brand-specific help; one-on-one marketing help, relevant feedback, and ideas tailored to your label!
We have launched StartUp SESSIONS in order to help you market your brand both online and offline; driving engagement, interest, and excitement around who you are and what you do.
Sometimes you just need an objective 3rd party, who won’t sugar coat but will tell you what you need to hear.
Our goal is to empower you to grow your brand in a sustainable and scalable way; to provide you with ideas and strategies you can apply and execute yourself. We want to help you start your own little tribe of ambassadors!
How does it work?
- A pre-rendezvous review of your website will happen on our end so that we can get a solid understanding of what you do.
- We’ll then schedule a 45minute to 1hour Skype call with you and our co-founder, Nicole Giordano, to review where you are with your brand and where you’d like to go. We’ll discuss your aesthetic and your goals, and we’ll give our feedback on your current digital strategy as well as discuss possible changes and improvements based on your needs, wants, and budget. We will tackle topics like language and voice of your website, social media efforts, offline initiatives, and community engagement.
- Within 5 business days, we will follow up with an 8 to 10 page DIY plan that is specific to your brand, with targeted ideas and marketing strategy to boost interest and eventually sales. Think of this as your go-to resource as you work to grow your fashion label.
We invite you to take part in this exciting experience. Let us to teach you how to pump new life into your brand and help you propel your business to the next level! It will be fun! We promise.

What do others have to say?
StartUp FASHION is exactly what I needed to help cultivate and build my brand. The tailored report was extremely detailed to the point that I could take the advice step by step. The professional strength of Nicole and her knowledge is outstanding. I would highly recommend StartUp FASHION for any designers, especially those who are just starting out.
I can’t even read it all (Action Plan). This is incredible, thank you SO much! A thousand thank-yous! This is exactly what I needed to know. You. Are. A. Rockstar!
~Ainslee Bowers, women’s apparel designer (New York, NY)
StartUp Sessions helped me understand what my brand was doing well and where there was room for improvement relating to social media outreach, marketing and website user experience. By listening to my concerns they were able to use their industry experience to come up with an actionable, personalized plan filled with ideas, resources and guidance on how to make my brand more visible and marketable. I’m a designer running all of my business operations on my own, StartUp Sessions has saved me so much time and money by giving my brand personalized guidance and invaluable resources.
~Anna Anthony, women’s apparel and accessory designer (San Francisco, CA)
I am so passionate and involved in the process of designing and making my work, it’s easy for the business aspects to end up on the back burner. The StartUp SESSIONS were so unbelievably helpful I only wish that they existed earlier! I feel like Nicole has given me tangible action plans that I can really accomplish to grow my business.
~ Ashley Conchieri, textile and women’s apparel designer (Boston, MA)
As an emerging designer and business owner, my StartUp Session has provided me with invaluable insight into the world of fashion, namely, removing myself from my brand, and taking leaps that I may not be completely comfortable with.
~Jill McKeown, jewelry designer (Montclair, NJ)
Have some questions or concerns? Let us put your mind at ease:
- StartUp SESSIONS really does work. Why? Because, as designers, your focus is on creating a beautiful product that consumers will love. Spending time talking, really hashing out ideas, and asking specific questions with someone who understands the business side of things will help you create a strategic plan to bring your business to the next level and help you get beyond the first step of making beautiful product.
- It can be a little scary to open up about your brand and business to a complete stranger, we understand! Think of StartUp SESSIONS almost as a mini counseling session. We want to help you access the answers to your questions and leave you feeling super excited to move forward with your ideas.
- StartUp SESSIONS is truly a great investment. Honestly, we’re not just saying that! The amount of knowledge and understanding of marketing strategies that you will walk away with is priceless. Only, in this case, it’s budget friendly!
- StartUp SESSIONS is not free and we know you’re on a budget. But please understand that the level of help we plan to give you was time consuming to acquire as well as compile. We’ve worked hard to come by all this experience…which we think is all the more reason to work with us! We want to help save you time and energy.
- Your information and ideas are 100 percent secure. We will never share any aspects of our SESSION with anyone or post anything on our website. We are happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement if it will put your mind at ease.
