Designing a garment is only half of the equation; next comes finding manufacturers to take your designs to market. One solution offered by eShakti that makes finding tailored fashion easy for women of all shapes and sizes is through custom made clothing designs made specifically to your measurements; users submit measurements online that create patterns, which then cut and sewn as finished products for sale.

Your own custom clothing can be created by sewing patches together yourself or monogramming an article of clothing. Professional mongrammers should always be used, however. A quick Google search should help you locate one near you. Patchwork designs can also add personality and interest to a wardrobe; for instance you could take two pieces of black-and-white fabric and sew them together to form an interesting patchwork design.

To create a more professional appearance, consider having professional photographers take photos of your designs for photoshoots. It is important that these photos be of high-quality as this will increase customer trust while simultaneously improving the appearance of your storefront. Using Etsy as an additional marketing platform may also reach a broader market of shoppers interested in handmade goods.

Your ability to market clothing will ultimately depend on your target audience and their buying preferences. While it might be tempting to attempt to reach everyone, targeting niche markets might prove more efficient – for instance a specific age group or geographic region such as Latin America could be your target demographic. Once you’ve narrowed your focus down further, focus on perfecting one or two styles before expanding them – similar to how Donna Karan established her label with only seven pieces in one color scheme starting off – such a strategy could pay dividends should your line prove successful. Alternatively, you might opt to invest in a custom clothing website, which could act as an interactive inventory and storefront for your label.
