I have been in retail for the past 25 years and counting, knowledge in women fashion and passionnate for intimates apparels for the past 8 years. I have experience in the start up of retail store, buying, merchandising, inventory control..
Throughout my 25 years and counting in the retail business I have encountered a pattern maker with big ideas and talent from whom I have sold some of her designs with big success. She does now own her own studio: www.truemeasure.inc.com
Both of us want to combine our two passions with her knowledge of designs and myself with my sales and managing expertise. Now what can we offer that would be different from any other retail:
1) MADE IN THE U.S.A
2) A start up store with some existing inventory,
3) A network of known clients
4) Can be sold retail or wholesale
5) U.S.A and EUROPE
6)) Besides the utmost customer service and bra expertise the possiibility for each client to offer CUSTOM MADE products and the list is endless.
7) Promoting our own line within the store
Bottom line is we could start directly with our own lines which is half finished but it does require more funds to cover events, conventions, samples and most importantly enough cash flow to accomodate wholesale invoices accounts which can be a problem because you have to pay the manufacturers first before you get paid by the buyers!
If we can't have a larger fund we can start with a retail store for half the fund and do it slowly by incorporating our lines with the store remuneration.
This is a business that doesn't have the option to fail but the capacity to strive.
Any serious angels with money wings who would be interested to discuss any further about this amazing business is welcome to respond. Thank you Chatou.
