Are you ready to turn your dream of creating a sustainable fashion brand into a reality? The 6-month launchpad is the perfect platform for turning your idea into a successful business. Designed specifically for start-up fashion brands who want to work sustainably and ethically, this hands-on consulting package will guide you through every step of creating and launching your business.
Get support through the 4 key stages of starting a brand
We’ll work together to define your mission statement, unique selling proposition, target customer and key competitors. From there, we’ll move onto sales strategy, discussing the best ways to sell your products and how to decide on RRPs.
Design and sourcing
I’ll help you develop your collection, connecting you to designers, pattern makers and manufacturers if needed. I can also work with you to source the right materials for your brand ensuring they live up to your and your customer's expectations.
It usually takes 2 - 3 rounds of sampling before you will have a product you're happy with. Throughout this process you will have me on hand to enable a smooth communications stream with factories and mills, and I can also provide support during fittings.
Placing orders and production
Once you are happy with your samples, I’ll help you to understand factory costings and finalise payment and delivery terms. Then we will develop a critical path to manage timelines for your launch.
How it works
We meet at least fortnightly on Google meet to agree tasks.
You have unlimited contact with me via email or Whatsapp during regular business hours.
I can attend occasional meetings or trade fairs with you or on your behalf, making sure you’re always represented wherever you need to make an impact.

Hear from one of my clients...
Working with Natalie has been invaluable! I was having a difficult time with fabric sourcing, struggling to find the fabric I wanted with low order quantities, at a price in line with my target, that was also sustainable!.....
As soon as I spoke to Natalie in our initial consultation I could tell she had a great deal of knowledge and experience and that she would be able to help me (she was also super easy to talk to!).
She spent the time understanding what my requirements were so that she was able to advise on a number of options of fabric suppliers and manufacturers that were exactly relevant to what I was looking for. I know I will work with Natalie again in the future and would recommend her services to anyone who needs help with their sourcing/sustainability!
