and most important,,your theme of clothing line!
I am interested in starting my own shoeline for my customized designs of pumps. The is a very new area for me. I have been doing a lot of research on what would be the best avenue to take as it relates to starting a shoeline of customized pumps but I feel like I keep hitting a brick wall. Do you have any suggestions on where I would begin or what I need to do to establish my own shoeline of customized designs?
I am a beginner, so I don`t have much information to share with you. But one of the first things I did when I realized I wanted to open my own party store was go and visit party stores just outside of my town (I figured they would be more willing to talk to me if they knew I wasn`t a competitor) and asked them how they got started and if they had any advice.
Out of the three people I spoke with, two of them were extremely helpful, friendly and honest. One of them was rude, unfriendly and very bitter. But, I left knowing that I wouldn`t let what she said get to me.
My point is, go visit some shoe stores! Preferrably, ones you wouldn`t be in competition with - they will probably be more likely to talk to you.
Best of luck, I think it`s a great idea!

Hi, personally I feel that before starting any business, one should have knowledge and experience of that field. So, he knows all pros & cons of it. You have to do research on shoes market and then develop your plan and strategies for your business.
Clothing line is the best and the most feasible one to start unlike the shoe line which requires a lot..

I agree with Julie and the other posters who mentioned the intense competition. I live in NYC and I can't even count how many people I went to school with who have dreams of being the next fashion designer/entrepreneur lol. One thing that will definitely set you apart is great branding. I remember reading the book written by one of the founders of FuBu and it was mostly about how to brand your company.
