If you are a start up brand in the UK and need help marketing your brand to the British High Street retail sector I am  happy to offer you my help.  You may decide to go direct to the consumer via your own website.  Depending on your approach I am sure I may be able to help you in some way.  I do know how difficult it is to establish a new brand and you may find it useful to talk to someone who has bought the t-shirt.

Previous marketing activity included designing and setting up trade exhibition stands in the UK .  The images below show examples of trade exhibition stands that we designed and set up for CARLING from PARIS and GRONNBAEK from DENMARK at the PURE venue in Kensington.

My commitments in the areas covered on this site however means that I am able to offer my time on a temporary and consultancy basis only if it helps in any way.

My experience in the ladies fashion wholesale industry goes back a long way.  I was one of the very first in the UK textile industry to implement an effective Sales and Marketing strategy and business systems specifically for the fashion industry that not only established the brand but also maintained its presence, season by season, in an extremely competitive marketplace. To be successful it is necessary to get as many things right as possible. I can help and advise on many aspects of the process and am happy support you and try to help you succeed.  This list may be useful.

I am happy to help new brands make a start at producing here in the UK  and will do what I can to help but can offer my time only on a consultancy basis.
