What our clients have to say….

Being in the SYFB community - feeling connected, participating and giving back - is a wonderful part of the journey which strengthens the tapestry of learning, knowledge and growth. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to launch and grow a fashion business. It truly is a priceless investment.
– Naomi Swalwell, House of Lacuna
I loved having a headstrong and inspirational mentor who could tell it to me as it is, and make sure I was set up for achievable success with direction and purpose. I needed someone to be in the ring with me, in particular advising on my books and financials. I would absolutely recommend working with a mentor – all day, every day.
Fashion Equipped helped me get to where I am today, and working with Elizabeth has given me the upper hand. I have been able to transform my small handmade business into a fully manufactured label and my orders have increased tenfold. Elizabeth guided me through the whole process from design and production to retail and wholesale pricing, right down to the details like trademarking my brand.
– Andrea Goulding, KaPow Kids
Finding Fashion Equipped was the missing link I needed. Not having a background in apparel but the drive to get my business off the ground, Fashion Equipped, between their one on one consulting and their online SYFB programme helped me fill in the gaps and got my start up moving. The industry knowledge, links and examples in their online programme is great for all levels and makes you look further into your business. Thank you Elizabeth, we are extremely grateful to you and your team.
– Danielle Sady, Everyday Lingerie Co
