Duty Management

EXPORTING TO EUROPE & THE USA REQUIRES EXPERTISE

As you are planning to exhibit in a foreign trade show in Europe (European Union) or the USA, you may want to offer the buyer a price list which includes duty.

Do you see it as a value-added?

If you do then here are links to help you do it.
And we can walk you through how to do it. We can even do it for you.

If you don't then I recommend you are getting yourself ready to lose many orders and give the wrong signals to the Buyers and other Fashion Stakeholders like Agents and even partners who would expect you to get the most from this expensive investment.

Online Audit Questionnaire

Building a retail business is important today as it is YOUR opportunity to get immediate feedback from consumers who like your Brand.

You also, of course, improve your margin.
You also are able to sell your products all around the world. Isn't that cool!

However, building strong and ongoing traffic and growing profitable sales is not an easy step.

INDIA going global

What does India offer?
Talented Designers and exceptional manufacturers servicing from the Value Market to the international Fashion couture Brands.

Isn't time for both to have a Brand and go international?
However, setting up and managing a Fashion Brand is not an easy project.

Every Designer must become a Business Designer and after 25 years in the business of Fashion, here are the reasons why we fail:
1. we do not have the skills, knowledge or mastery to launch our Brand
2. we do not have the processes
3. we do not deliver consistently
and
4. we lack a coach, mentor or sounding board.

Partnership in Nigeria

Nigeria is a country that dominates the Fashion Scene in Africa. 
They count an incredible number of Designers, many very talented.
