FAB Counsel
Summary of Talk

Another FAB Counsel event is about to hit you on March 26th! This time, we’ll be showing you how to use strategy, finance, & law to either launch or grow your fashion business, whether it be a clothing, store, or whatever!

6 out of 10 businesses fail within the first year. Fashion isn’t an exception. The number one reason for this?…..POOR EXECUTION. Many entrepreneurs make the mistake of doing everything themselves without having the proper experience & knowledge. Don’t let it happen to you!

Trademarks, incorporation, distribution strategy, patents, tax brackets – these are just some of the things you can expect to come across once you even think about starting a fashion line or store.

Consultations with lawyers, business advisors, and accountants come with a hefty price tag. But you know FAB Counsel always got your back! Come to this seminar where our all-star panel of strategic, legal, and financial experts will break down the necessary components that you need to know for building a strong foundation for your fashion business! These industry leaders specfically work with fashion-driven clients, so they’ve got the specialization and insight that you need! Here’s who’s talking and what they’ll discuss.

Part 1: Strategy

  • Mary Vallarta, founder of FAB Counsel, will go over how to strategize the launch of your fashion line or store to ensure that you understand your prospective markets, customers, start-up costs, distribution strategy, & plans for growth. Mary Vallarta has launched multiple boutiques & fashion lines with her immense experience in retail & marketing.

Part 2: Legal

  • Manoj Shah, co-founder & partner at The Fashion Law Group will discuss how to structure & protect your fashion business. He’ll go over business incorporation, patents, trademarks, contracts, & other necessary information needed to start & grow your company without any legal headaches. No one wants to deal with lawsuits or getting knocked off!

Part 3: Financial

  • Alexandra Scoggin, VP of business development at Bibby Financial will talk about factoring, loans, & other forms of funding needed to get your fashion business running!
  • Sagar Parikh, founder of PMA, will walk you through managing your finances, so you never get buried under debt or get killed on your taxes. He’ll also cover best bookkeeping & financial practices that are need to grow your business effectively.

Arrive at 6:30 for some refreshments and networking. The panel will then start promptly at 7pm. A 30 minute Q & A will then follow.
