"If you want to be the next Donna Karan or Ralph Lauren, take the advice of Jennie S. Bev, editor in chief of StyleCareer.com, an e-publisher specializing in resources for job-seekers in the fashion industry:
Find your niche. Fashion encompasses a huge market-women's casual, men's formal, plus size and so on-so narrow it down.
Study the competition. Learn about their niches, why they stand out and how they market. Can you effectively compete?
Find out which retailers accept new designers. Secure your manufacturing or CMT (cut, make and trim) needs now.
Have ample startup cash. You'll need cash flow for at least two and a half years, since the fashion cycle is from 18 to 24 months between design and retail.
Think creative but wearable. "If they are too bold or cumbersome to wear," says Bev, "nobody will want them even if they are fairly priced."
Get your name out there. Start with a good label that speaks to your niche. Participate in fashion trade shows. Get fashion media attention for your line. Persistence is the only way to attract buyers.
Put on your business hat. "Being a successful fashion entrepreneur requires 90 percent business skills and only 10 percent artistic skills," says Bev. "Many new designers fail because they have impressive artistic skills but very limited business skills.""
