Well, when your business is open and ready let me know. I'll be happy to mention it in my blog. You can visit my website, I would really like to hear your opinions. I like to think of it as more then a business. it's just what I do:) http://honeyhandbags.com
my trip is a little up in the air at the moment and waiting to confirm trip and visas etc etc but i should be going to Bangalore and Coimbatore/Tirupur (spelling often wrong by me !!) but i thought you were interested in Africa?? or was it always India :) either way they are both important regions to focus on. it will be my first trip there so I have alot to consider too. Re shops did you see the ad from runway showroom and also laden showroom, also beyond the valley...may be good to try
Welcome to the Forum. Interesting to read about you and your business ambitions. How are you getting on with your final year? We've been working with Fashion Design students up at Gray's School in Aberdeen on a live project and it's been so rewarding. If you're interested in the manufacturing side of things then one of our directors David McGill, whose side projects ('Tartans for Africa' and 'International Tartans) have made him very knowledgeable about manufacturing, both in the UK and overseas. He's on the Forum (look for a tartan sheep pic) and would be happy to help.
