Everything You Need To Know About Starting A Clothing Line With Low Funds by Dilianne(f): 3:56am On Aug 09, 2018
This interview is probably the best you'll ever read about starting a clothing line with little or no funds!

It's short precise and workable. It also touches every area and kick starts you on your journey to greatness in the fashion industry.

Everyday Greatness with Dilianne; Featuring the CEO of E2N clothiers.

DA: What you finally decided to startup, what was the first step you took?

Anietie: First off, the key to starting anything/business is first learning. I didn't just jump into the whole idea of being a CEO or owning a clothing line. I had months of working under/with people who had their own businesses standing/working. Learning from them, learning how to source for fabrics, where you consider fabric color, texture, and purpose.
I had to learn about time management, dealing with different types of clients, how to get clients, how to get materials even down to button selection.
All these were done even before I decided to unveil my logo and name of business and eventually started registration of the company under the corporate affairs commission.

DA: How much did you startup with and how were you able to raise funds?

Anietie: How much Started with basically nothing! The thing is at the beginning, I decided to start making wears for myself. So I was my Model, my bill board, my advert and my marketer.
I will usually let the client know the cost of production, add cost of transportation and that's it. Initially I wasn't adding anything for profit. I just wanted to create a client base and awareness.
Raising funds were from my pocket money which was barely enough to feed me and buy my materials for projects (I was an Architecture student so you may have an idea of how often we had to buy instruments and print for projects).
