Fashion Event at the City Business Library

(Event now no longer avaliable!)

Are you starting a fashion business? Growing your fashion business? Then you need information!

Do you know where to find valuable market research for free? Reports that would normally cost thousands of pounds, and you don't have to pay anything? This information is a must for your business planning.

Do you need to know what your possible competitors are doing? Or are you looking for suppliers, or business contacts? Or are you looking for potential business customers? Do you need a Business to Business mailing list, but can't afford the huge prices to buy one? Or are you looking for high-net-worth individuals to buy your designs?

Do you need training to help you with your business from experts in their field at very low cost?

Do you think that the Internet has all the answers? Sorry, it doesn't. Business Information that is worth having is not freely available on the Internet.


Do you know where to find all of these things under one roof? We do – the City Business Library in the City of London. All our information is FREE to use, the only catch is that you need to visit the Library. The Library is a public library funded by the City of London Corporation, so anyone can come along to use the valuable reference sources. We have newspapers, books and magazines to help you run your business, but the best things are the online sources – we buy these so you don't have to – just come along to the Library and use them.

We have sources like "Drapers", "Global apparel update", "Retail week", "Key Note" market research, Data monitor and Euro monitor market research data, "Retail directory" (to find names of retail buyers), etc.

You can't borrow anything from us, but it is possible to download or copy small bits of information (within copyright law). Always bring a memory stick when you come.

There are lots of events too (we have between 40 and 60 a month). Seminar subjects vary from Business planning to Social media to Presentation skills. They're all advertised on Eventbrite Why not come along to The Business of Fashion evening that we're holding with Fashion Capital on the 3rd October – click here for more details and to book.
