What is sample making?
Casual Friday is EVERY DAY.
Remember when people dressed up to go to the office? #NewRules! If you work corporate you can now spend your entire day in your pajamas working on spreadsheets. Or at least pretending too... Boffins at the NPD group have apparently determined that only 10% of people can be bothered to dress up whilst working from home. Who can blame them? What does it all mean? Is this now chaos? Will we emerge from post Covid pale imitations of our previous sartorial magnificence? Only time will tell. By the way, we can make pajamas if you're interested.

Fashion is a tough business.
Starting your own fashion label is very tough. Many are called, but few are chosen. It's hard to say how many people with a dream and vision fall by the wayside, but in our experience, quite a lot. The day-to-day running of your business is going to have to include things like : Phone, Internet, Computer & Software (Excel, Word, Photoshop, Illustrator), Electricity, Car, fuel, Insurance, an Accountant, education, web-site design, the list is endless! That's before you've made your first sale! Or for that matter made anything worth selling. Remember when Cabbage Patch dolls were the rage? Where are they now? Fashion is a fickle-mistress, but if you heed her call, we will do our best to guide you in your quest for success. Give us a bell, and we'll go over everything we believe you need to do in order to succeed in the biz. Make it work! Mwah!
Just G's!
A group of nine kids from Tokaroa high-school have started their own fashion business. “The whole idea behind Just G’s was all the boys coming together as one... we have been able to prove people wrong and show that we are actually worth something.” You can read more about it on Stuff, New Zealand's digital newspaper. We wish the team well. Give us a bell if you need any help.
