If you're building a brand and want to get serious about creating products sustainably and responsibly, then you will love The Sustainable Fashion Collective.
Have you always wanted to create your own ethical clothing brand but didn't know where to begin? "What products should I sell? How should I price them to be competitive? How do I create a brand identity so strong that it would give Stella McCartney a run for their money?"
Or, are you trying to grow your business? "Can I actually turn my brand into a business that generates strong profits, supports me and gives back to the community?"
If you’ve ever asked yourself any of these questions, The Sustainable Fashion Collective Members' Club will help you address them and bring you one step closer to your goal (and we also throw in fab discounts and deals on yummy ethical textiles too!).
It’s possible to start a sustainable clothing line that can become your full-time career.
I'm Charlie Bradley Ross. I founded and built Offset Warehouse, the ethical textiles company, in 2011. Within three years we grew - without any startup capital - to over six figures in annual revenue. The company is one of the only textile retail companies to exclusively sell ethical fabrics - those that don't harm the people or the planet, and we've worked with some of the biggest brands in the world. You may not have realised, but you've seen our fabrics walk the red carpet, on runways across multiple Fashion Weeks and in blockbuster movies. I'm proof that you can build a business built on sustainability and ethics - and make a profit.
"No entrepreneur should ever struggle to develop their business ethically".
My core belief is that no entrepreneur should ever struggle to develop their business ethically. Over the years, I've worked with brands, both big and small - and one thing that I consistently noticed was the confusion surrounding working ethically in the fashion industry. So, in September 2017, we launched The Sustainable Fashion Collective - an online members' club filled with resources and information to help your business grow and succeed both responsibly and ethically. The club is a resource library filled with incredible, valuable information that you can access anytime, as well as a support network of other designers and business owners just like you.
Have these challenges or worries ever hindered you from starting your own business?
- “I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH STARTING CAPITAL.”
- “I LACK THE TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE TO CREATE A BUSINESS.”
- “I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO PURCHASE ETHICAL FABRICS.”
- “I CAN’T FIND A RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURER.”
- “I HAVE NO FASHION MARKETING EXPERIENCE.”
- “I DON’T KNOW HOW TO CREATE A PRICING STRATEGY.”
Guess what - I’ve been there too. You will face challenges along the way. It’s part and parcel of every entrepreneur's journey, regardless of industry. That being said, as long as you take things step-by-step, there’s nothing you cannot achieve. I wish that I had this resource when I began my entrepreneurship journey; it would have prepared me for the curveballs that came my way, and helped me and my business avoid costly mistakes. This is precisely why we started this Members' Club; so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did. Instead, you can apply the learnings from industry experts and entrepreneurs to fast track your path to building a successful clothing line of your own - responsibly and ethically.
