Have you worked in an apparel manufacturing setting before?

No, new to the fashion industry.

If not, why do you want to get into this field?

My sister and I have started a business, and are producing a women's wear collection this year.

If so, why do you want to continue to work in this field?

I am new to this industry.

Do you realize that design is about 10% of what you actually do in a start-up apparel business and there's not that much glamor involved?

Yes! I have worked with textile, apparel, and handcraft entrepreneurs in my previous position in a non-profit. I completely understand!

Are you aware of how much money you will spend to get your first sample garments made and how much time it takes to be profitable in this industry?

I'm aware that the start-up costs will be high. I'm hoping to gain more knowledge about how to budget, cost, and price products appropriately.


Hello, I am currently working on a start-up business with my sister, who is a designer. I recently moved to the Bay Area, and would like to meet others in this field and share experiences with entrepreneurs. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!
