The Business of Fashion
Will teach attendees about the business of fashion. People get distracted by social media and loose sight of the foundation of being a retail business owner. I have taught at LIM college for the past 2 semesters as a guest speaker, and the students were not clear on how to accurately price their inventory, the importance of being an LLC, how to file their taxes, making their designs and brand stand out from the competition, and which fabric works best for your consumer. As a celebrity wardrobe stylist, I have learned that customer service and knowing your demographic is a major key. So I will be completely open, honest and transparent about my experience in retail for the past 15 years. Attendees will leave with tangible worksheets and advice that will help grow their business mentally, spiritually and financially.
