Some wonderful ideas out here.
I`ve recently lauched my retail business also and I`m using a fundraising event to raise my profile and get my products and may company exposure. I met somone through a chamber of commerce event- over here in the United Kindgom!!, whose working for a Blue Chip company looking to raise 10 million for a retirement village. I`m donating my ethical fashion, which is also imported from Pakistan, to be raffled off on the day and raise some money from the event.
Perhaps you could try something similar???
Try to look for some up market events, where your target market may hang out, even charitable events are buzzing around this time of year, or perhaps awards evenings, there are plenty of women that go there!!!
I hope this helps!!!
Best Wishes fom England, Europe.
