Jane Hamill, CFI Mentor and founder of Fashion Brain Academy, will host our first Chicago Fashion Inc* program! Join us January 26 from 5:30-7:30pm at Life Creative for "The New Fashion Business Model: 3 Alternative Ways to Run Your Business (and Make Money)!"
Jane's seminar will cover alternative strategies to run a fashion business in 2017. Jane will share specific examples of small business doing things differently - and why it works. These case studies will walk you through exact strategies - step-by-step - with an emphasis on how to make your business sustainable for the long term.
In many ways, the fashion industry runs exactly the way it did in 1970 -- and it's NOT a beneficial system for designers. You don't need to do things the way they've "always been done"!
- how to create multiple, small collections that ease cash flow and stress
- how to avoid cold calling retail buyers
- 3 ways to compete with the "fast fashion" mentality
- how to make your own Fashion Calendar
