About Fashion NYC

I am a New York-based fashion designer, one year out of college. I am driven, creative, and Ivy-League educated. After stints with several respected designers, I am starting to launch my own women's wear brand in New York. The product is a luxury-level RTW brand with an aesthetic I describe as "elegant and raw". Looking to launch the line and enter the boutique wholesale and online retail market in the next 18 months. Have one collection completed for Spring 2014 with lookbook and fine-finish samples. Working on Fall 2014 collection now. I have gotten positive feedback pre-launch in talks with local boutiques and online retailers. Have a business plan in hand. Looking for someone with sales-and-marketing and/or biz dev background who is enthusiastic about the retail/fashion space. Happy to send over materials and lookbook to serious, interested parties.
