Are you local to the Dallas area? Looking for fabric suppliers that offer low minimums? If so, then you need to attend the DG Expo Show next week in Dallas! The DG Expo showcases over sixty fabric suppliers, trim sources, and manufacturers who are catered to working with independent, start-ups!
While the event now spans New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Miami; the next show is taking place in Dallas March 25 & 26th at Dallas Market Center and we are excited to be exhibiting and speaking there this year!
Effectively Communicating with Fabric Suppliers
When it comes to textiles, weight, hand-feel, minimums, shipping, and production costs; I’ve found that most new designers don’t know the right questions to ask. Plus many companies will take advantage of you if they sense that you’re a newbie to the business. This is why having an expert to guide you through the sourcing processes will help you EFFECTIVELY communicate with fabric suppliers- resulting in the best fabrics for your line at the best price! We have a few 1-on-1 strategy sessions available during those days, but they are booking up fast.
Whether you need help figuring out your next steps, would like feedback on your line, or need us to help source fabrics for you because you cannot attend the show; we are here for you!
In these strategy sessions, you’ll have my undivided attention and receive valuable insight from a fashion professional with over 15 years of experience. We will connect you with trusted fabric suppliers, valuable resources and provide you with access to all of our productivity tools, cheatsheets, templates, and more! I’ve personally seen my clients excel in their business even after just one session!
If you are able to make the event, or even if you’re not; I encourage you to book a 1-on-1 strategy session with us. We will be in Dallas from March 25 & 26th! If you’d like to book an appointment, please contact me here. I have relationships with many of the vendors and happy to point you in the right direction based on your specific sourcing needs!
