I live, love and breathe slow fashion and I know we can use fashion as a force for good, so I want to share solutions to help you increase your impact and increase your sales.
Here are my top five tips to move the needle in your slow fashion business...
1. Ask and you shall receive.
You can ask me anything about fashion, business, ethical manufacturing, sustainability, and growth to get the answers you need to overcome challenges. Marketing, PR, your strategy, sales, how to wholesale, Instagram engagement, customers, sourcing... Whatever it is, ask me questions and I'll give you answers. If you're struggling with something, send me an email or DM me on Instagram, it's that easy!
2. Be a sponge.
I believe in constantly learning and it's what my weekly LIVE Instagram interviews are all about. I speak with incredible guests doing amazing things in the fashion industry, and we talk about all things fashion, business, sustainability, sales and growth. My Instagram LIVE chats are a source of inspiration and they're conversations full of growth tips, industry insight, and tried and tested methods from ethical, sustainable, circular and slow fashion brands. Be a sponge and soak them up via Instagram.
3. Invest in yourself and your business.
The only difference between a big fashion business and a small fashion business is a different skillset, and everything your competitors know - you can learn. My online courses and masterclasses are specifically designed for ethical, sustainable, circular and slow fashion brands, labels and businesses, so they're packed with practical strategies to build your skillset, level up, fast-track your success and increase your impact.
4. Opinions are like armpits.
There's a lot of people sharing a lot of 'stuff' and sometimes, it's too much. It can be overwhelming, but you have to find the right business mentor or coach that you connect with, and block out the rest of the noise. You need to get laser focussed on what you need and soak up the right strategies for growth. It's what my slow fashion business blog exists for, and you can take what you need and leave what you don't need. Opinions are like armpits (everyone's got them), but the strategies and business growth tips I share are built on an entire career working in the fashion industry, and over a decade running my own slow fashion businesses. I only share tried, tested and proven strategies that work for ethical, sustainable, circular and slow fashion brands. If what I share resonates with you, it's a good sign to take in more of it!
5. Surround yourself with people who lift you up.
Being in business is tough, tiring and taxing - when you don't have a strategy or the right support network. But when you surround yourself with people who share your values, people who get what it's really like to run a slow fashion business, and you have a great support network of mentors who genuinely care about your success - the whole business thing is a heck of a lot easier. My private TFA community gives you all of that and more, and it's a beautiful group of slow fashion brands who are using their businesses as a force for good. If you want in, DM me on Instagram.
And lastly, where there's a will, there's a way. If you're passionate about what you do, if you're changing the world with fashion and if you care about your impact, there is a solution to every single business challenge you're facing. Sometimes, you just need a little help to see it, so reach out and let me help you today.
