Start a Swimwear Business
You’ve designed a swim and beachwear collection … Now what?
The global swimwear market has been forecast to reach a value of US $19.3 billion by 2018, driven by the popularity of swimming as a healthy and relaxing leisure activity and by the growing demand for innovative products such as UV protection swimsuits and thermal swimwear.
However, it’s also true that the swimwear industry has many barriers to entry for newcomers. Mainly that large companies have a triple-threat of (1) supplier, (2) buyer and (3) bargaining power. Capital expenditures will be required for supplying large retail distribution chains but smaller swimwear businesses can thrive through online sales and wholesaling to boutiques.
Start a Swimwear Business is the ultimate How-To PDF guide. Learn how to plan your brand, produce your collection, promote your business, and sell your product.
Know what you’re up against.
Half of all new businesses survive five years or more and only one-third will survive over a decade. The odds, unfortunately, are not in your favor.
Starting a swimwear business is more than just being cool by the pool. You’ll need to understand the operations of a dynamic fashion industry and how your new swim line will expand and thrive in the future.
You’ll need to understand your market size and appropriately communicate a plan to banks and lenders. That said, you’ll need to compose a business plan, organize cost sheets, develop order forms, and, finally, network with industry connections to help you accomplish your sales goals.
Startups fail because management teams become overwhelmed with death-by-paper-cut administrative duties on top of creative direction. Along with growing debt and unforeseen business expenses, failing to keep a fickle buyer and conscious consumer interested in your product will sink even the most on-trend of fashion vessels.
Start a Swimwear Business guides you step-by-step through establishing your brand and how you sell to buyers.
