5 Mistakes To Avoid When Starting Your Fashion Brand

1) Not Legally Protecting Your Brand Name. (The legal costs are approximately $1,500-$2,500)

2) Designing everything for everyone. Niche down in the beginning. Let's be successful in one category first and then branch out from there.

3) Not testing your samples. When your samples are ready make sure that you wear them first before moving on to production (especially if it's a new pattern). This will allow you to pick up on any flaws no seen by QC checks.

4) Not opening up wholesale accounts with fabric manufacturers. A big portion of your profit margin could be effected by this mistake.

5) Skipping the Business Plan. A Business Plan is your friend. It helps you stay focused.
