Information Session

We invite you to join us for our Fashion Label Ignite webinar to learn the Secrets to Success in the Fashion Industry.


We have put together an Information Session specifically to help you to get started as a designer – however, regardless of the stage you are it in your design career, we can help get you on the right path to success!

In this webinar, founder of Sample Room Julia Van Der Sommen will answer some of the most
common questions we are asked and give you guidance before you take the next step.Fashion Design

Julia is the founder of Sha-de and Sample Room, is an experienced designer, pattern maker and mentor to fashion entrepreneurs and has over 20 years’ experience working in the fashion industry.

Here are some of the things you will learn:

  • How to create a customer base before you’ve even started designing
  • The 3 mistakes people often make when they are starting out – and how to avoid them!
    As well as
  • 3 things ALL successful businesses do to develop their product and save money.

Clients tell us this is a priceless resource which helps them to use their time more effectively throughout the design process – including when they work with us here at Sample Room.

At Sample Room, we have helped hundreds of emerging designers launch their fashion idea.

In the early days we became so disheartened with clients who came to us with fantastic ideas and a very clear vision, but didn’t know what to do, where to go and how to take the next step; and as a result failed to make it to their second season.

I thought ‘If only I could just guide them through the first six months/ first design cycle they would then have the knowledge to successfully launch their range’.

With the growth of the internet, there has never been a better time for emerging designers to launch their label and sell directly to their customers with instant results!

Learning how to develop and produce your range the right way is critical to your success!

There is a SMART way of launching your business and an EXPENSIVE way. This is the first step to discover the SMART way.
