A young business doesn’t run itself. It takes a tremendous amount of time, energy, thought, and work to make it successful. We are driven by one primary objective: to enable founders of fashion companies and creative businesses to spend more time doing what they enjoy the most—creating.

Our business management and consulting services are tailored to each client but generally include business planning, operational support, and strategic planning. Our clients range from start-ups to businesses in existence for two to five years and include textile, womenswear, menswear, jewelry and handbag designers, and online apparel, décor and lifestyle retailers. Our work is grounded in collaboration, communication and partnership.
