Surfing Turtle Creations

Originally Surfing Turtle Creations is a bespoke tailor for men and women. We now seek to reach a wider audience. To expand its business and find multi-brand outlets, Surfing Turtle Creations is designing its first collection of ready-to-wear clothing for women. How to define the brand? Structured cuts and vintage have a special place, while keeping a wink for a detail or work on a material diverted from its primary use . A little phrase sums up the brand idea: "Chic or casual, the choice is yours! ". Dare to wear a piece out of the ordinary, dare color, prints and enjoy yourself! The clothes are made ​​available in a spirit of rational or reasonable business, which means, clothes that fit you well, fine quality that is kept a long time in your dressing, designed and manufactured near you in France .

To implement this project, I am in touch with an experienced stylist who will help me through this process, including research of clothes manufacturers guarantiing a superb quality finish in the "french couture tradition" and a famous fashion photographer (a chance we are neighbours!) for a nice communication. And if the brand design and quality is touching you, ideas abound and I'm happy to present you new and original models just for you! Surfing Turtle Creations is a registered trademark with the INPI (No. 11 3814182).

Allocation of funds

The funding will be used to complete the following budget lines:

 

1. Purchase fabrics from suppliers with whom we already work: 2000

Our suppliers offer quality fabrics, mainly of European origin, especially France, Italy (coton, silk) and Britain (wool, tartans).

 

2. Making models with a high-end French manufacturer: 5000

Initial contacts have been established with manufacturers working with major fashion houses.

 

3. The freelance stylist/modelist: specifications, production monitoring, advice: 1000

The project has attracted the attention of an experienced designer who has made many collections.

 

4. Communication photos, look-book, folder and press relations, exhibitions: 2000

This is an important budget because you have to make known to the public and fashion professionals to maximize its chances of success.

 

We have been selected to be part of a new online shop Disclosure. The project starts in september 2013 and we need packshot pictures : 500 € + 120 € for make-up and hair.

We booked a 3 weeks time corner in a new shop (7, rue de Crebillon 75016 Paris, near the Luxembourg gardens and senate) : 780 € HT that is 932,88 € TTC as I am "auto-entrepreneur" for the moment.
