I am new to fashion forums. I am cofounder of a startup called Runway Avenue. Our business concept is connecting independent fashion designers with customers in the fashion world. We create value by providing designers with place to market their brands and for customers to buy designer brand items nearly all handmade instead of manufactured and lower priced than major name brands.
Currently, we use social media to find independent designers to grow our online store. Personally, I find convincing designers to join us one by one is not efficient. I've tried to contact fashion news outlets to share our story without success. Now I'm looking into forums to seek advise on how to attract fashion designers and attract customers with the designers I have sign-up now.
