About

Today the business of fashion has changed dramatically. There is no fashion without finance. My business model has been pitched to a host of investors to no avail. Challenged by limited access to capital I was encouraged to create a Kickstarter Campaign to launch "Stephen Burrows Now ! "  a legacy collection featuring the best of Burrows to the global fashion community. The funds raised on will enable me to rent space for a design studio/showroom, to purchase fabric and produce a ready to wear  line. Create  e-commerce and mobile commerce sites. It is my passion to custom design red carpet originals for rising stars and icons in music, fashion and entertainment. My sensibility to fashion is ageless and timeless. It’s a style that is imbued with a youthful optimism and sophisticated confidence. Join my movement to bring "Stephen Burrows Now" to the marketplace so it may rise yet again to the forefront of fashion. Please back my project and share with family & friends. Your support is greatly appreciated. I am grateful and excited. Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

Distribution challenges. We have engaged a retail specialist and have targeted stores interested in the new collection.

Licensing possibilities may be difficult to attain.Expert on board to pursue possibilities.

Production problems occur. Producing in New York allows me to be on top of production mishaps.

We also have a group of experts whom can advise us on the various problems which could arise.

We are looking for a design studio/showroom with reasonable rental options.

Murphy's Law in fashion what will go wrong does. A team of seasoned professionals can handle the ups & downs of the business.
