“ Apparel Entrepreneurship is such a valuable asset to any clothing brand. Ana and Klas both have a wealth of experience from setting up their own brands which means that the advice, based on these experiences, is realistic and actionable. The membership program provides useful resources to help brands learn about the elements required for running a clothing line, and the tools and templates offered here are extremely valuable as they are hard to find elsewhere. The availability of discussion boards and forums, helps to make brands feel well supported by the two of them, and by others in the membership program. “

“ What you have created with your business and website is long overdue in this industry.
Your experience and the content you create out of it is of very high value, not only for new starters but also for those that already deal within a running system, to better understand the full picture.
It provides a nice guidance and source of help for those who do not have the relevant network yet to get proper information from. “
– Simone Meier, Germany
” Starting my own brand seemed like a too big of a project for me to embark on. I didn’t know where to start, what questions to ask or where to turn.
Ana and Klas at Apparel Entrepreneurship, helped me with everything!
Their combined knowledge and experience is impressive. They set the tone for what was to come, they gave me guidance of where to start, from branding, marketing, hangtags, to neck and size labels, to patterns, fabric, and manufacturer hunting.
They walked with me every step of the way and having them as a guide made the journey feel safer and they do push things forward. You’re never standing still and if I ever had any questions – they’re super quick to answer.
The best part was that they are so passionate and invested in the work that they do. They genuinely care and they want you to succeed. “

” I am a french entrepreneur. I knew nothing about the apparel business, when I bumped onto Apparel Entrepreneuship.
This is the perfect balance between knowledge, user-friendly tools, and community. I found it very useful to learn about the business and interact with pros.
Hope they will keep growing to help the next apparel entrepreneurs. “
– Thomas Blard, France
“ Super cool offer, very structured design, good general overview! I´m checking out the page regularly because it has become my bible :-)))) “
– Doina Husiatynski, Austria
” I started my company with basically zero knowledge about the apparel industry. With no network, no experience not even basic industry knowledge. The complexity of it is frightening ….so frightening, that at one point I was on the verge of giving up.
And this is when I came across the Apparel Entrepreneurship community. It was like getting a structured handbook – it’s extremely useful! Access to many years of industry expert knowledge, giving me a strong basis and opening my eyes to directions, trends and necessities I haven’t even though of before……and whenever I’m stuck or in doubt, I can always count on the community to help me out.
I can’t express how grateful I am to Ana and Klas for starting this! Thank you! “
– Edit Nagy, Hungary
” Apparel Entrepreneurship’s focused pool of information, contacts, and templates is a service that I couldn’t get anywhere else.
I am coming from another industry and for me, AE is both a crash course and a support system to make my development process both faster and more accurate.
I’m also looking forward to seeing how the community grows and I expect that to be another source of valuable information and support as I’m preparing to launch and then grow my brand.“
– Joonas Luotonen, Finland
