how did you feel before speaking to elizabeth? 
why did you contact her?

ANNABEL
I was procrastinating because I didn't know what to do next, I needed help to know about the order of production

CATHERINE
I was aware of my own lack of knowledge in terms of garment construction and fashion production and Elizabeth was there to help.

CARO
I felt uneasy and confused. With no one idea how to even go about thinking launching my clothing line. The creative is my forte but production is an enigma! I thought speaking to someone on that side of the fashion industry would help me demystify it and understand it.

HELENA
I felt like was in a bit of a rut, creatively frustrated and not sure what direction to take the business in. I needed fresh ideas.

 

 

did you feel differently after speaking to elizabeth?  if so, how?

ANNABEL
Great! I had a clear list of how to do things in the correct order

CATHERINE
Elizabeth explained some of the basics of garment construction, best practice when constructing a range and tips and tricks to keep in mind - all super helpful.

CARO
I did!! I felt relieved to know - it's not too late for me & practically this is achievable, I felt more confident about my ideas.

HELENA
Yes! I felt inspired to get started with new ideas and actually felt really excited about the new things I was planning to do for the business. I came out of the meeting feeling like I had more direction & clarity.

Yes! Elizabeth is super easy to talk to, and gets it! She goes beyond the clothes talk to give you support in your creative journey which is equally important if not more!

HELENA
100%. Not only is she so knowledgeable about running a small business, Elizabeth is also such a lovely person. She makes you feel so at ease when talking to her which is definitely what you need.

what was the most helpful part of the discussion?

ANNABEL
The timeline and just being able to talk to someone who could explain the basics to me.

CATHERINE
Garment construction -particularly range construction - having an entry point garment and more of a showcase piece; plus margins and financials.

CARO
The practical questions Elizabeth asked allowed me to think about my brand as a real and tangible thing. Questions like: Have you thought about how many pieces the collection will have? Did you know that the average size in the UK is size 16? Those are thing only an industry expert would ask!

HELENA
She gave me a lot of new ideas for my social media. I'm still learning so much about how to use instagram effectively, and Elizabeth really helped with her little tips and tricks.

 

did you learn anything new?

ANNABEL
Yes I would definitely recommend!

CATHERINE
Yes absolutely!

CARO
Yes! Learnt about the questions one would go about considering when creating a collection. Also where/ how to think about going about the manufacturing process and even learnt about an industry show to visit! I've booked my ticket already

HELENA
Again with Instagram, I learnt about which hashtags to use that will get you better engagement. She also told me about setting goals, how much it helped her and to be really specific with your goals which something I've never actually done before.
