Opening your own boutique or starting a fashion business is a dream of every inspired fashion designer. It sounds wonderful to curate a store full of items that bears your label and connect with customers who adore your designs, all while maintaining working hours that fit in with your lifestyle.
But, the road to your own successful clothing line is rarely smooth. As a fashion designer, you really enjoy the fun part of making sketches, getting feedback, and deciding which designs will become part of your first collection. But, this is less than 10% of the whole process. Running a fashion business means packing boxes at 2 am, steaming clothes over and over again, and pouring through receipts with an accountant; this is all part of your routine. To be successful in the fashion business, you need to pick the right partner, make business plans, secure investments, hire employees, pick out fabrics and materials, choose garment manufactures, market your clothing lines, generate sales, fulfill sales orders, manage customer satisfaction, and vendors expectations; the list goes on and on.
The road to your own clothing line is treacherous, starting out as a young designer, with the talent and passion for design, is there any hope?
What if somebody could change the way you play the game of the fashion business? Change it into something more fair and accessible. Change it into something that mirrors only your immense talent and passion for design.
This is exactly where the model of gigiway steps in. The team at gigiway have dedicated ourselves to enabling fashion talented people to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
You design fashion, we provide the rest.
At gigiway, designers can focus all their energy on design. You submit the design sketches, along with any notes, patterns, specifications that will help to keep us true to the design concept; and the prototype to gigiway. We will handle the rest, from market research and marketing to production, from order taking to distribution. We will turn your designs into finished fashions and get them to customers worldwide. We will even provide a social media platform to help you to get instant feedback and one-on-one communication from a worldwide audience in the comfort of your own home. And best of all, we will provide all these services at zero cost and risk to you.
In the end: We will share the revenue with the designer. Fairly and Squarely.
How does the process work in detail?
We provide a one-stop service to fashion designers including prototyping, production, online sales, delivery, customer service, and social platform. Designers can simply upload designs with the necessary digital documents for production, and once adopted, they can profit from the sales revenue.
Designers would be expected to upload designs and the complete package of production drawings (e.g. structural drawing, fabric selection, and accessories, etc.)
We prefer designers provide us with a prototype along with the design work. This helps us to ensure our production process is best able to meet all the design specifications. We will take designers' existing photographs and visuals of the product to publish them in our online store.
What if the designers don't have the capability of producing the prototype and visual? Don't worry. Our in-house experts will review the designs,and once adopted, produce the prototype and visual for the product.
Now, we come to the exciting part. gigiway will publish the products online and accept orders directly from our customers worldwide. For certain products, we may use a pre-order format to increase sales orders.
Based on the actual orders or pre-orders, we will manage the production of the final product through "production on demand". With our streamlined production capabilities, we can fulfill most orders in one to five days.
If the product fails to achieve a certain number of orders within a determined period, it will be automatically removed from online store.
E) Post sales
gigiway offers international shipping for most destinations around the world. Our super savings option will take seven to fifteen business days and expedited services can ship to most locations in two to five business days. Our experienced customer service representatives are available 24 x 7 to assist customers on any sales-related issues.
F) Customer feedback
gigiway will provide the most up-to-date product and sales analytical data to designers. With those actionable data points, designers can not only track their product activities, but will also be able to use the feedback to improve designs and increase sales.
In addition, gigiway offers a social media platform to encourage designers to engage with customers and peer designers in order to exchange ideas and receive feedback.
Alongside our one-stop service, gigiway can work with fashion designers who have existing production capability. We can provide online salesand marketing support to promote their products on our platform.
