About this project

Jn Marie Fashion is a high fashion brand which is ready to make it's huge debut at LA Fashion Week in October. With your help and support, I will be able to create a 24 piece collection which includes RTW and Couture pieces. The funds will be used to for supplies, to create patterns, sample productions and couture looks for the runway. The goal of debuting during LA Fashion Week is to get as much exposure as possible to ensure that my garments will go into production and sell in stores and online.

Jn Marie Fashion's collections are made and manufactured in Los Angeles and garments are made from the best quality fabrics like silk, cotton and bamboo. All garments offered to backers for Spring/Summer 2013 are highly discounted. Be among the first to rock Jn Marie!

My designs have been worn by celebrities in phototshoots and featured in magazines. Please click on link to my website to see more.

Risks and challenges

When creating a clothing line there are a variety of obstacles that could arise from dealing with many vendors. One is them is maintaining a job schedule to ensure that garments are produced in the right time frame. I have calculated extra time into my schedule to make sure that this problem will not be a factor. I have done my homework and established a list of vendors who I can rely on and work with productively. I have also collected fabric swathes for new collection, created sketches and created a construction plan.

If the project is funded successfully I have a plan, including a budget breakdown of my cost, which will help me stay on track financially. All plans are not set in stone and I do expect to encounter small issue which will be easy to solve because I have given myself extra time just in case. I will also have interns ready to help assist me on this project. Over the last few months I have learned a lot about the business end of creating a fashion line and I am ready to put all my hard work to great use.
