I along with many other have been very inspired by lots of the speakers plus the guests who are working flat out to realise their fashion dreams and tapping into our contacts and resources. I have also been amazed at the way people respond to some of the events and the question we get and who comes consistently month in month out supporting our endeavours.
This week we have had a big meeting in Manchester about moving forward and extending our reach and we want to hit the road.
So over 2011 we are going to travel across the UK and visit Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Ireland and anyone else who will have us and build a bigger network and reach out to as many people as possible. We know that in each town there are huge groups of people who are either building brands, or designing their labels or just putting everything into opening their dream shop. But have no resources to tap into or no one to just share common experiences with.
So if you’re in the fashion industry and you need advice , or to tap into some great resources or just face a night out networking with some other industry people then get in touch with me as we want to see and hear from as many people as possible.
Our next event on the 28th of September is about the rise of the Pop Up Shop and we all know no matter where you are in the country there are loads of empty shops – so if you have always wanted to open a shop but didn’t know how to approach this then come along and listen to those who have done this and they will explain the pro’s and the con’s.
