Today I’m speaking to Michelle Ramsay, The Fashion Expert®, about creating a successful fashion brand.

It’s no secret that fashion is the top selling industry in almost all of the world. If you’ve ever thought of starting a fashion brand (and even if you haven’t!) this week’s episode takes you through how to create a successful brand, step-by-step.

Building a fashion brand is very exciting and I hope these tips will help you start on the right foot. From talking to Michelle it’s clear to see that doing your research is key to success. Take your time to, put the work in and be clear on what you want to achieve. Good luck!
