Starting an ethical fashion brand

100


100 per hour Virtual OK

I will spend an hour with you to answer any questions you have about starting an ethical or sustainable fashion brand. I have worked in several countries on both the production, design, sales, and marketing sides of this industry - and I can give you insight into some of the tips and tricks I have learned along the way, as well as some of the pitfalls to avoid. Starting your own brand is hard and you don't have to do it alone! I've been getting a ton of email requests for advice, and although I want to help as much as possible, my time is limited, so I've decided to offer this consultation through Simbi rather than charge for it. Feel free to propose a direct trade that will benefit tonlé (have a look at our site first), or I am happy to take Simbi as well.

If you'd like to sign up for a session with me, it is helpful to know in advance some of the key topics you'd like to cover to make best use of our time. Please send me a little information about your business and what you would hope to achieve in a session with me when you propose a deal so that I can be as prepared as possible. Thanks and I look forward to speaking with you!

Training & Qualifications


I have spent 10 years working in the industry working in several countries and in several different aspects of the business. I've been running my own label for 9 years and have built a successful sustainable brand and production facility from he ground up. I have had to figure out how to do several things on my own that I could have or should have gotten help doing - don't make the same mistake!

About Rachel Faller

I'm an artist turned designer turned entrepreneur. I started an ethical fashion and sustainable fashion label (tonlé - tonle.com) in Cambodia 9 years ago and now travel back and forth between the Bay ...Area and Cambodia. Through running a business I picked up a number of skills in addition to fashion design; I've done quite a bit of styling for photography (fashion and food...long story!) As well as interior boutique design (I've opened 5 retail stores) and graphic design. I still do quite a bit of painting and illustration for fun. I can make clothing but I probably wouldn't do it for a trade, but I'm open to a range of other creative work and consultations. Recently I've been getting a number of requests from designers looking for help and feedback on starting an ethical/sustainable/eco fashion business. Because I've spent 10 years in the space and have a limited amount of time available, I have had to start putting a value on my time, but rather than charge for consulting I'm offering that service here on Simbi in order to contribute to the community here. I'm happy to trade that service directly for deals that contribute to tonlé - or for Simbi. Some of the things that I am always looking for are: models, photographers, creative contributors, bloggers, videographers, administrators, and designers. If you want to propose a project that incorporates any of those things related to tonlé, let me know! I'm also happy to trade for clothing - check out what we have on our site. show more
