We have helped the likes of international fashion designers, menswear accessories brands, designer handbag labels and more. Many fashion businesses have, with the support of our business advisors, crafted their business plan, refined their goals and successfully secured finance that is right for them.

Business advice for London fashion designers Fyodor Golan

The lender had a better understanding about where we were coming from as a creative business; it was very different to a bank where they want to see the numbers and invoices first.
