I want to get my clothing line produced

    I am fairly new to the fashion industry. I have 2 lines that I would like to get produced. The first is called the Romantic Goth line. The second is the Feminine Bondage line. Don't let the names fool you. Both lines are geared towards women that like to feel sexy and empowered while still looking like a lady.  Women of all sizes can wear the majority of pieces on both lines. However, there are a few pieces that are for the smaller frame. I will not support unhealthy images on either end of the spectrum.  I am looking to make connections with others in the industry. I am seeking advice and guidance from them as well as from others that have started their own business.

    The research I have done shows I am looking at around $25,000 to $30,000. This would include the patterns, prototypes, grading, and 100 pieces of each style. This is for roughly 10 to 12 pieces. Nowhere near the entire line. Either one.

    Hi Dawn-

    I just wanted to make you aware of a new fundraising platform www.bleedingheartsmecca.com I launched which is similar to Kickstarter and provides a free platform for anyone looking to raise money for anything whether it is a start-up venture to cover medical expenses to an artistic project to political campaign. This could be an additional means of raising money for your business and hope you will consider using bleedingheartsmecca.com. We take 10%, 5% for operating expenses with the other 5% going to charity. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a wonderful day!

    Hi Dawn,

    I think your clothing line is an excellent idea. Have you thought about crowdfunding to get the money that you need for your business?

    Crowdfunding allows people to donate money to you for your business, medical expenses, or any other expenses.

    It's free and very easy to get started. For more information visit https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/health-and-wellness/x/747227

    Thank you
