In celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in partnership with Fashion Designer in Residence Stacy Stube kicks off Baltimore City's first ever Fashion Entrepreneur Trade Show called Fashion-A-Preneur. This event will have a mix of panelist discussions for small fashion companies. Topics include: how to grow by selling directly to customer in the digital space, finding market opportunities with crowdfunding. The trade show encourages a move away from the traditional debt based wholesale fashion business model. Where instead positioning for just-in-time manufacturing, small batch production, niche market products and services.
By empowering the local fashion business community, the power shift moves back into the hands of the maker to transition onshore apparel manufacturing to the next generation.
