Join us for insider tips, and some pre-Christmas cheer at this inspiring and informal Buyers Lounge talk, our last networking event for 2019.
We’ll be joined by a super experienced panel including brand & retail consultant Maggie Smart & ASOS womenswear buyer Bianca Peltier – other special guests TBC.
Chaired by Fashion Angel founder Alison Lewy, we will be discussing:-
Building a brand story
How to get noticed and approach buyers
How to find an agent
Trade shows vs showrooms vs agents
Pre collections/mainline – do you need both?
How current disruptive industry changes may affect the buying cycles
As usual there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and to network with the speakers, Business Club members, and the Fashion Angel team.
This talk is a must for fashion, jewellery, textile, homeware and accessory brands looking to develop the wholesale side of their business.
BOOK NOW – places strictly limited and must be booked in advance.
