You have an idea for a boutique product, but there’s so many parts to consider. How do you successfully bring your idea to market? You can’t be expected to know what you don’t know.
Bringing your idea to life can be challenging, but ultimately, also, very rewarding. It’s virtually impossible to make it happen without an extensive consideration of commercial outcomes and viability. Ignore this and you’ll waste valuable time, money and emotional labour.
This workshop will help you move from idea to action. It aims to help you assess if your product idea can be profitable. You may be a passionate designer or marketer with a great idea, but do you have the specialised knowledge and skill-set to physically get your product to market successfully?
In this workshop you’ll:
You'll walk away with better insight and understanding to make informed decisions about what product to develop, where your product sits in the marketplace and the essential elements of pricing.
Further workshops covering the next stages of the development process are being planned. Dates TBA.
You should attend if you:
**This is a small event with limited seating, in order to explore people's ideas and questions more thoroughly.
**Morning tea will be provided.
About the Organiser:
Hi, I'm Louise Weigall. I'm a product coach and style consultant. I love strong coffee daily, listen to business podcasts weekly and will always find a reason to buy new shoes every season.
I work with small business owners, specialising in textile and apparel product, as an experienced and trusted advisor to help them understand what it takes to create high quality and profitable products.
My business provides industry relevant advice on how to navigate the obstacles around process, planning, sourcing, production and price. I'm a listener, more than a talker, who genuinely cares about helping others reach their potential and bring their product to market.
Formerly a knitwear designer and producer, I have unique insider knowledge of both top tier and mid market labels on fit, fabric, price and customer. I have an extensive work history managing the product lifecycle for high profile and boutique Australian fashion labels including Scanlan Theodore, Country Road, Willow, Anna Hoffmann, Sass & Bide, Yeojin Bae, Jag and Grab Denim.
Style with Substance now gives me an avenue to support the creative potential of the people who use style as a form of self-expression, and the product designers seeking to fulfil their creative and entrepreneurial potential.
