    Hi all,

    I am in the process of finalising my business plan, financial plan, and market research to open an online children’s clothing boutique. This is something I have wanted to do for the last 5 and a half years and I am finally getting this show on the road. I am highly passionate about my business idea, the industry and the reality of starting my own business. I have read the flying solo book, along with many other books, I have had business mentoring through my local BEC and have done a lot of other research to better my skills and knowledge in this field.

    If there is anyone out there who has experience in the fashion industry and working with suppliers, I would LOVE if you could send me a private message. Contacting the suppliers which I hope to work with, is something I am quite scared of doing. I am expecting that some of them will reject my request to stock their label, so if there is anything at all I can do to better my chances as a beginner I would love to know. I just have a few questions and concerns I wish to discuss, so if there is anyone at all who could help a newby out, please let me know.

    =D

    Hi Kristy,

    Not sure if I can help or not but I will try. I have experience in high end homewares wholesale which is not dissimilar to fashion and in coaching wholesale kids wear. I know a few of the tricks that may help you out.
