Fashion Entrepreneurs are a special breed. They tend to think creatively, they thrive on chaos, they have total faith in their products. And chances are they haven’t had any special business training. What they do have is passion, passion for the product and the industry. Many fashion entrepreneurs have dreamed of starting a business for years and feel that if they don’t begin a business they will always feel they missed out on pursuing their dreams. Of course that doesn’t mean they are all running their businesses effectively. However they increase the ability of their success if they follow these habits.
Maria Pesin knows fashion, especially the business side of the fashion industry. Do you know how Manolo Blahnik got his start in the industry? How he leveraged a paltry 3 grand into one of the world’s most famous luxury brands? While she doesn’t take credit for Manolo’s success, Maria has walked a similar path on numerous occasions. The world of fashion is not silicon valley, and it has nothing to do with Madison Avenue marketing. In this industry there is ALWAYS room for something new and exciting, but you have to have your ducks in a row. If that’s what you need, believe me, Maria is the General Patton of fashion ducks!
