I’d love to get my leather work into the mainstream of fashion. Any advice?
Well, you start by showing it to us! Getting yourself out there is never easy but I can recommend a few things … – Show your products to bloggers: We bloggers do tend to get overloaded with pitches but if your stuff is actually cool then you should get a bit of traction there.
– Set up an Etsy shop: Etsy is a great place for indie designers to sell their products. They have a great community that is really supportive. Being on Etsy takes minimal effort and can churn out maximum results if you are lucky.
– Go to market and sample sale: Get a booth and start selling, you never know who will you meet at those events.
– Get your stuff photographed: Try sending your products to TV personalities and PR agencies. There is always a chance that your precious samples won’t get any camera time but if they do it can be huge.
Hope that was helpful. Good luck.
