Services

There are different ways of working with me depending on your budget, the size of your business and how much help you need. All services begin with a free 30 minute call to assess the needs of your business. 

Mentoring

For small businesses on a budget who need advice from an expert

Mentoring takes place online and consists of a 1 one hour call on zoom (or series of calls) where I will draw on my 15 years in industry to help you with your business. We can talk about any topic that relates to running a fashion brand, here are a few suggestions:

- Clarity on your business idea

- Getting ready for wholesale

- How to make your business more sustainable

- Review of your range

- How to improve lead times

- Analysing sales

After each call you will receive a write up of what we discussed including any links I've recommended and any supporting documents or templates.

Investment:

£110 per call 

Or book 4 calls for £395

(to be used within a 6 month period)

Hear from Chris, a previous mentoring client...

I started my own clothing brand and needed to find out more about the norms within the fashion industry in terms of manufacturing and sourcing fabrics.

 

With speaking with Natalie, it is clear that she has extensive knowledge and expertise in her field. Every question that is asked is met with an answer.

 

If you are looking to start up your own fashion company, or simply want to know more about the industry then I couldn't recommend Natalie highly enough. 5*

Projects

For businesses that only need one problem solving

Many brands come to me because they just need help solving one problem e.g. 

- sourcing ethical factories

- sourcing sustainable or low MOQ fabrics

- completing a brand deck or competitor analysis

- trend forecasting

Costed individually for each client depending on the scope of work and the deadline.

Bespoke Consulting

For more established businesses that need ongoing support or start ups that need help from the beginning

Consulting means I act as an extension of your team for a minimum period of 3 months. You get the benefit of having an experienced senior fashion buyer in your business for a fraction of what it would cost to hire a permanent member of staff. . 

I offer consulting on 4 scales:

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!
