Once you’ve designed your product, how do you begin manufacturing it for sale? Many fashion entrepreneurs start with homemade products, but as your business grows you’ll need to scale up. This two-hour workshop will cover domestic vs offshore production, how to find factories and ensure quality output of your products. You’ll also hear about the potential impact of COVID-19 on US production.
This workshop is the third session in a 6-part series dedicated to fashion entrepreneurs. This series will run on Mondays from August 17 through September 28.
