What Members Say
“I find that doing this alone is often the hardest part. Aside from the amazing info, the friendships and assistance from this group is invaluable.”
Janet Hamilton, Founder of Farrier Leather
“What we have here is a gem of a group! I have developed great relationships with other members who are selfless and kind and whom I admire.”
Miriam Grunhaus, Founder of Mikah Fashion
“I’ve been a member for over a year and the community is so helpful, and supportive, and the knowledge and content Nicole shares with the group has helped me more than I can express!”
Julia Ahrens, Founder of Miakoda
“Such a wonderful community of people and resources – the best money I’ve put forward for my business by far ❤️.”
Katie Martello, Founder of Breakfast Swim
“I’ve been a member of StUF for a year and love having a place where I can learn and feel connected to other designers with similar struggles. Joining the community has been one of the best things I have done.”
Katie Deming, Founder of Make Merry
“I’ve been a member for going on two years now and the resources are invaluable. From one crazy busy fashion entrepreneur to another, you can spend hours googling or you can spend $39 a month on yourself and SPARE YOURSELF THE TIME that can definitely be used better elsewhere. This group has been huge for helping me move forward and learn from others more experienced than I am. Highly recommend.”
Jacoba Behnke, founder of Jacoba Jane
“I’ve been a member of this community for a couple of years and I really wish I had joined the community when I was still developing my line because it would’ve saved me so much time, energy and $$. In addition to thoughtfully put together business resources and collections, the designers in this community themselves are its very best asset. I have gained so much knowledge from simply watching what others have done to leverage their businesses as well as talking to several designers. STUF has given me the tools to really understand what it takes to start a business.”
Eliana Ghantous, Founder of Modjewel
“Joining startup fashion has been one of the best decisions I made for my business. I meet great folks who are always there to help. It’s not like other communities where the leader is literally a stranger to the members and the members are not willing to help each other. Here I feel heard and less alone. Thank you Nicole for the love you put into your work. ❤️”
Mardiyath Chitou, Emerging Apparel Designer
“I have been with StartUp FASHION for 2 years and, I can honestly say it’s been worth every penny. It’s rare to get both great resources and a great community of designers in one place❣️”
Tonya Powell, Founder of Pareure
“I finally joined and and binged the members website. I’m shocked at how much detail has been put into every workshop, video, etc. I feel excited now, and not lost.”
Lindsey Stripling, Emerging Handbag Designer
Dear Brand Owner,
Hi, I’m Nicole, the founder of StartUp FASHION and I’ve spent years guiding and encouraging independent fashion designers to take action, get confident, and reach their entrepreneurial goals.
I have built a multiple six figure business without going to business school, have helped thousands of fashion brands find growth in their businesses. I travel to at least three new countries every year, have lived abroad, and have built businesses based on the belief that I have full control over how I use my time on this earth. I want to help you do the same thing.
My goal with StartUp FASHION is to light a fire under your butt. It’s to help you stop questioning if/when/how you can do this, and give you all the tools you need to actually make progress.
It’s a community of fashion entrepreneurs who look fear in the face, understand the challenges ahead, and do it anyway!
Do it anyway, designers. Your life is your own to create.
Lots of love and encouragement,
Is Membership Right For You?
You may be wondering if The Membership is a good fit for you and your business. Here are some points to help you know, either way.
Who is the Membership For?
Independent aspiring brand owners who need help launching your business and who are taking on the majority of what it takes to run a business themselves.
You are an action-taker, ready to commit the time and put in the work to have the business you want.
You are challenging the traditional approach to fashion business. You who are learning what the rules are so that you can break them and build something your own way.
You are anti-racist and support the LGBTQ+ and other marginalized communities. You share our belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to chase their dreams and reach their goals.
Who is the Membership Not For?
Brands that are up and running and able to hire out for all their needs. You don’t want or need to learn the ins and outs of marketing, production, sales, and operations.
Services providers within the fashion space. We love you, but our membership is a safe, pitch-free space specifically for those launching products in the fashion space.
You are dedicated to holding onto traditions and “musts”. If you feel as though the only way to grow a fashion business is to find investors, put on runway shows, and get into major department stores, our “break the rules” approach might not be right for you.
Those who are accepting of racism, sexism, ageism, able-ism, homophobia, or bullying. We have zero tolerance for that.
Real Designers, Real Success
Imagine a life where you are a confident, financially successful business owner.
You turn your dreams into accomplished goals.
This could be your life. You can do this. And we will help you.
What kind of brands is The Membership for?
All kinds! Our members design: womenswear, menswear, shoes, handbags, scarves, belts, lingerie, eveningwear, kids wear, even hats!
What stage of business do you need to be in?
We are focused on helping those who have yet to launch their business. Our core content is the Launch Your Business Blueprint, a step-by-step approach to launching.
Is membership only for US based designers?
Nope! We have members on every continent except Antarctica!
How much does it cost to join?
You have two options: $54/month or $475/year (which give you 3 free months!).
What is the cancellation policy all about?
You can cancel your membership at any time from directly inside your dashboard.
If there's anything that is not clear or any additional questions that we can answer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be sure to help you.
It's Decision Time.
Hey, it’s me again. I wanted to say one last thing.
When you know the questions to ask and the steps to take, you are no longer just dreaming, you’re doing. And that’s a powerful combination.
