Another week has passed and feeling a bit lonely in my quest of handbag design. I found a brilliant mentor service in London, Fashion Angels http://www.fashion-angel.co.uk.  It was great to go over the concept of my bag and I was given great advice, researching retailers that I would like to stock my bag and then re-designing my bag around their style. I am off this week to meet someone in London who may be able to produce the bag in short runs.

My main concern is that I will be able to produce my bag at the cost that I want to retail it for.

I am a small business ( tiny ) and I don’t have lots of capital and I have no financial help, so everything I do I pay for directly. I can’t hold masses of stock without an order, I can’t approach buyers without a competitive cost and I can’t get that competitive cost without ordering a massive stock….. catch 22.

Any ideas on how I can’t get out of this vicious circle ?

I have now chosen my leathers and my lining. I have been looking at a lot of bags in the shops the last few weeks ( years ) and I really wanted a textured finish and colours that were rich with an urban feel.

 I didn’t realise how many different zips there are on the market to choose from !!

This week I made up a small sample board of ideas for the bag. This is for the NY guys, so that we are all on the same page when it comes to the quality and look that I want to create .

 

Ahh!! I’ve come to a bit of a block with going forward !

  1. what complementary material would look good with leather ?
  2. was having this sample made in NY a good idea ?
  3. will this bag take off ?

HELP !!!!!
