How to Succeed in Fashion Industry
How is it that the clients keep shifting from one fashion designer to another, one of them is trying to make a breakthrough in the industry while the other has been in the “break out phase” and has been successfully working before? Well, it is because the fashion industry is ever-changing. Some would say that if you are not moving with the trends then there is no way you will survive since these trends come and go. While others would say that the “F” in fashion is more important than fresh, while the “U” stands for unique. They would also be right. Fashion like other businesses revolves around business principles such as efficiency, effectiveness, innovation, and change. Although change can be one of the more uncomfortable joys of any career, it can also be one of a long-lasting career.
Our industry is not silent these days, nor does it operate in a closed system. Instead, our fashion industry is open, networked, opinionated, prolific, flexible, besides, and anywhere! We have a certain code of conduct, a certain language, certain methodologies, and different values. Therefore, we have many different criteria that we measure success! And here is one of them.
The measure of success in the “new age” of fashion is entrepreneurship! This new age is about business, innovation, creativity, style, personal expression, and more. In the original fashion world, you would have modeled, you would have been the executive, you would have organized the team, you would have worked with accounts and everyone would have been driven by their zone of competency. In today’s world and more so nowadays, that is no longer the case. The world is more complex today and the talent pool is just larger! This is the main reason why retail and FMCG business has shown triple-digit growth. From a talent pool of less than 2 million by the year 2000, 20 million by 2005, and more than 80 million by 2010, no fewer than 80 million by 2011. That is quite an interesting large talent pool to be swimmers in! And this large pool means that talent must be made available to fashion brands or you can go through all day and night going from one cold, instance fashion show after another. You need a whole team to support and more importantly enthusiastic personnel! If not, the world will not be able to keep up with you!
Certainly, a characteristic of entrepreneurial ventures is that passion for succeeding, and sure it is the underlying energy that drives you into it but following your heart is not the true way to get up and make it happen. The real recipe for success a permanent career in fashion. And the place to start is doing your homework! What do fashion brands need, what are they sensitive to, what are their preferences, what are their demographics? Do your research before you start. Don’t wait for the perfect scenario to kick in, the perfect commission to start rolling in, to be paid in the middle of the night, and then neither pay and act on an exhaustion that the world is blocking your way! Follow your heart, but start your pursuit of success with a market-searching session.
And however you get to collect your portfolio, start a business of your own or buy an existing fashion or rubber fashion line, there are some rules of the game to follow. A successful business is built on the following foundation.
Small is better in this case as it provides real research and shaky foundation and instant introspection. Ice is best that money is kept in ice and power formulas are best that the power of fuel is not consuming the reserved reserves of that investment. Stretch for innovation and the road networks.
Refrain from instant success and perseverance is the route to success in this venture. Begin with small steps instead of one big leap. Build your network, expand your business, put your heart on it, but then forge on. Spend the heart of your idea, the effort, the sweat on your product, and later your family which will cheer and support you. Look before you leap, look between and look home.
