Starting a clothing line can be a very rewarding experience for a creative entrepreneur with a vision. Whether you’re looking to create a simple line of printed apparel or you want to create an entire cut & sew collection featuring various pieces and seasonal additions, this post will show you how to start a clothing line.
Depending on what kind of clothing line you want to create, there’s likely going to be many different steps involved in the process. The more involved you want to be in the sourcing and production of your line, the more time, effort and money you’ll have to invest. If you’re just interested in starting something quick and easy, there’s options for that too. In this course, we’re going to show you step-by-step how you can start your own clothing line whether you have a small budget of $100, or if you have more than $10,000 to invest.
If you’ve ever been thinking about starting a clothing brand, look no further. This course has been in the works for nearly a year and along the way we’ve included the knowledge and experience of dozens of entrepreneurs and companies from the clothing industry. This industry knowledge ranges from a small brand that managed to launch a successful crowdfunding campaign that raised them $300,000 to put towards manufacturing their high-end merino wool clothing line, to a private label wholesaler of blank apparel who targets the B2B market, to a pattern maker and tech pack designer who works with aspiring clothing line creators to help bring their visions to life and finally we’ve gone right to the source to get insight from a factory that dyes yarn and weaves textiles.
There’s a lot involved when it comes to starting your own clothing line, so let’s jump into it.
