After consulting my university I have been told I can do my own business. Basically my plan is to sell my lingerie ideas through boutiques/shops, I am doing it this way because I only have a year before I have to go back to Uni to do my final year of my degree, and I wont have time to do both.
Has anyone done something similar? Can anyone give me any advice? I can't decide whether to ask a manufacturer to produce me a prototype to show shops, or whether to attempt making my own. I have started a business plan, but I need to sort out finances. Does anyone know about particular sources of financial help?
I have just bought a book on making lingerie, so hopefully that'll give me more of an insight, and I will take out some books from my uni library on starting your own business. However I know sometimes books are not always helpful for what you need!
I am just a designer & I really don't have the first idea about making clothes so I would appreciate any help/advice. I really need to make this work to pass my degree, so please any comments would be appreciate.
I am working in England.
