Creating a sustainable fashion collection is not easy. It is necessary to create something that meets the real needs not only of the market but of society.
It is necessary to offer fair prices, to make the rate of return higher than the costs of production. To build sustainable production plans from the environmental, economic and social point of view.
We need to find the right partners to help in the execution of these plans. We need to find suppliers, designers, seamstresses or factories for manufacturing in scale. Once the product is developed, it must be put on the market.
It is necessary to build an eco-marketing and eco-branding plan that informs our consumers about the processes of creation and development. We need to build content for social networks. It is necessary to participate in fairs, exhibitions. Offer products in physical stores and online marketplaces.
It is so much to think and do that sometimes the work seems to be endless. In the first week, we are full of motivation while the second discouragement knocks on the door. We begin to procrastinate and slowly give up. But what if we could do all this in two days?
On a weekend, we will work side by side with you to: create your brand concept, create your eco-marketing plan, draw up your sustainable production plan, access the list of suppliers of organic fabrics, talk to seamstresses and designers who will be delivering, budgets to create your patterns and prototypes, design your sales plan and scalability.
Alone or as a team, you will receive expert mentoring. You will receive exclusive study materials with tutorials and homework assignments.
