I am a London Based Fashion agent representing womenwear brands from Around the world.
I have been in the industry for 23 years now starting off in the warehouse, going through the sampling, production, design and eventually sales rooms until settling into sales.
I am now very interested in ethical fashion due to the over exploitation in pretty much every area.

Hi Naomi,
I think i commented in the wrong place!!! lol.

Okay I have had a look at your website & merchandise and I think both are wonderful. I love what your doing. I have a few suggestions for you.
Firstly, if you can, bring your pricepoints down a little otherwise you are going up against the big boys at this pricepoint, Anya Hindmarch, Bill Amberg, Mulberry and the like and even though they are not ethically minded, the have huge PR and marketing machines & the same buyers you will be targeting, they also target. Customer base is pretty much the same wether ethically produced or not.
Also, definetly do a mailout to everyone on my buyer directory as everyone of the buyers/stores are your customer! They all buy heavily into bags and accessories and the fact that yours are ethically produced will appeal, just make sure your at a slightly lower pricepoint than the majors.
Lastly, if you can, develop a weekender bag it maybe worth doing so. Weekenders command a slightly higher RRP, I have wholesaled these for 220 GBP.
Other than that you are spot on & i really think your merchandise and ethics are beautiful. Love the photography on your site. Congratulations!
P.S. If i can help with anything else, just find me!

Hi Rentato,

Thanks for the advice, would really appreciate your feedback on the Collection. I am showing at Pure 2-4th August Stand L16 in the Gallery so if you visit, please do come and say hello.

I downloaded your contact book this morning- it couldn't be better timed! It's a great price for what it is. Do you update it yearly?

Best wishes,
