K+K Hotel George Kensington, 1-15 Templeton Pl, Earl's Court
FBB is an intensive full day workshop to help aspiring designers, recent graduates and fashion enthusiasts understand the basics of building a fashion brand.
Rebecca Tembo decided to create this workshop based on near 5 years of experience and the information she wish she knew, which would've saved her a lot of time and money. There are a lot of events which discuss building a fashion business but at this course we cover the topics which aren't discussed. We look into strategies you can use on a low budget, untraditional funding options, small MOQ manufacturing and why mindset is everything in fashion and as a fashion entrepreneur.
This isn't a 'How to be a Successful Fashion Designer' workshop. This is how to build the foundations of your business and skip a lot of unnecessary mistakes. Success is individually defined and there's no one way system. However, our aim is to make sure we give you a head start on your journey.
