** It has come to my attention that some are attempting to scam designers by either imitating me or by using a version of my name and details in order to solicit designers into placing orders with them or similar. Please note this is a scam and neither myself or anyone connected to Boutique Buyers would solicit business in this manner. If you receive such an approach please note that it will never be from either myself or Boutique Buyers**

'Successful people do the things un-successful people don't want to do'
This site provides a vital resource which will hugely assist emerging fashion & accessory designers, fashion students & graduates, creative individuals, brands and labels with the area's of the business least studied or focused upon, yet are imperative for success in the real fashion industry.
These area's include fashion buyers,showroom sales, agent sales, distributorship deals, PR, exhibitions, e-commerce and sales admin ( boring yet vital!) I can assure you that without any sales orders, all PR, promotional work, runway shows, exhibitions, fashion shoots and sample collections produced will be wasted if no sales orders are secured for your merchandise. Even your stunning website will be wasted if there is little interest and traffic is not driven to it. It is therefore vital to focus on these area's with the same dedication and enthusiasm as developing the collection and I am going to show you how. This is all about what to do, what not to do (very important) and also to provide you with everything you must know and be pretty savvy about, in order for success.
When it comes to PR, most believe any PR is good PR. Let me tell you this. Good PR is not cheap so initially keep it done by yourselves and in-house. Editorial PR is okay if you want to read a story about yourself/brand/label. It's good for the ego but the best PR, aside from advertising, is product placement in magazines or online, which is free but requires much work on your behalf. Product placement drives SALES on whatever is chosen to feature in the magazine/online shoot, however fashion editors will not give you product placement if you cannot list good, usually city based, stockist(s) for your merchandise and in particular, the pieces of yours used in the shoot. Why? Because what's the point if they cannot direct their readership to the stores that are selling your styles featured in the shoot? It defeats the object if their consumers cannot buy what they are featuring because you have little to no stockists for it so it's not readily available. Bottom line,they won't use it in their shoot.
Simply put, if you want to save an enormous amount of time and money whilst at the same time developing real success in the fashion industry, then you are at the right place and at the right time.
Furthermore, I am going to give you a complete, full contact detail, men's, women's and accessory buyer database and fashion editor database. You are going to see what a professionally written press release looks like and much much more. Why produce collections and samples that nobody orders? All that happens with those collections is that they are cleared at sample sales, a complete waste of time and money. I am going to show you how it is done by professionals, just follow our footsteps.
Want to know how we get in front of buyers and take orders? Read on.
I have worked in the fashion industry for 30 years and still am today, supplying the very best mens, womens, childrens and accessory large bluechip fashion multiple retail groups, premier independent retail groups and e-tailers. Everything contained in my e-book stems from many many years of first hand experience and I have tried to leave nothing out.
The e-book/guide/databases (which all download automatically and instantaneously from this page at the bottom) are not specifically about just me or my life in the business, but are detailed blueprints for what I have learned in my 30 years which is required knowledge for success. It has both full and detailed explanations and examples. It comes complete with a comprehensive menswear buyer, womenswear buyer and press contact directory containing over 1050 full detail contacts and outlines what we do, as professionals in the fashion industry, to not only attract the biggest and brightest retailers but to also secure orders with them, which is the lifeblood of our business and our goal.
Compliments from buyers,PR's, acquaintances and friends are welcome and nice but without actual signed orders behind them, they mean little!
If your plan involves supplying the bluechip multiples as I do, M&S Next, Arcadia etc, then do not even consider this if the factories who produce your merchandise are not fully SEDEX or SGS audited at the very least. The bluechips and their in-house QA departments (Quality assurance) will not touch you! Better you know now than waste much time and money later. Dealing with bluechip multiples means you must have a complete production department who are fully trained in all QA compliance procedures including fabric/washcare/dying testing to 'REACH' standards, broken needle policies etc. It is a technical minefield so initially my advice is not to even try to entertain these types of multiple retailers at the outset.
The e-book, databases and information have fast become a discussed underground success story by providing an established blueprint to follow. It has been endorsed by those in the industry and also by fashion students, emerging designers, brands and labels worldwide. If you seek further knowledge regarding the business then you have found it, as well as a buyer directory containing over 1050 fashion and accessory Buyers and fashion editors/ assistants for all the major publications in the world.

Subject: A thank you from Julia Brendel Limited
Your book, "Some buyers will, some buyers won't" was delivered to us this morning and has already been read!
We're a new fabrics and soft furnishings design company and really wish we'd seen your book a year ago!
Slowly but surely, we're gathering some traction but it's taken a huge amount of work so far and having read your book, we've clearly made some errors on the way but nothing too terrible thankfully.
We have a number of stockists, a great website, have been nominated for a number of major awards, receive a lot of press and trade online as well as via our sales people. We exhibited at Decorex last year and are shortly to do so at Interiors UK in a few days. What we've learnt from the book will stand us in good stead as we develop and (very) gradually expand. Just wanted to say a real thank you for the book and its contacts which we will use as our bible going forward.
With kind regards,
Gerry and Julia

The e-book is now also available in Paperback. See bottom of homepage for details. Also you are now supplied with an added excel spreadsheet with buyer details as well as the database in the e-book.
I bought your book and have so far found it amazingly helpful. I am currently in the process of putting together my debut collection of high-end ladies wear dresses, hoping to sell to designer boutiques and department stores for SS13. It’s so wonderful you have written a book giving advice on what no-one has done before. I found it refreshing, to the point and a reminder to all the small detail that I could have otherwise overlooked.
