Running a successful company in the garment industry can be hugely rewarding but can also be very challenging. Garment Mantra offers a wealth of help and advice to its clients on a wide range of business issues.
The textile industry is fascinating and is bursting with brilliant product and hugely creative people. However, it is also a sad fact that there is a very high failure rate for many start-up businesses in this industry.
While your design is obviously hugely important, having the correct legal framework in place when you start to sell is just as critical.
We make clients to understand the importance of design protection, of having relevant terms and conditions as well as providing advice on selling through an agent. The Garment Mantra team can help clients to get their story right for buyers, including preparing line sheets, designer profiles, price lists and images. We can also help by providing an objective eye on your collections and material.
