Are you a designer that wants to develop unique clothing but don’t know the first thing about running a business?
At Shabby Apple, they understand that many designers want to design and develop unique clothing but don’t want to hire employees, pay taxes, manage shipments to customers..well you get the idea! So in order to support start-up fashion designers and the fashion design community, they developed their own Emerging Designer Program.
Applicants who are accepted into the program will have their designs featured on the Shabby Apple website and will received 40% of the revenue from the sales of their designs. Emerging Designers will be in charge of designing, funding and manufacturing of all of their own designs. If the designer has never manufactured before, Shabby Apple will provide assistance with this process.
(NOTE: If you are an accessories vendor and would like to dropship with our site, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.)
