Many young people dream of being a fashion designer, and the Yupoong Hats Wholesale Program is a low-cost way of having your own unique line of hats.
How to be a fashion designer
The traditional route to being a clothing designer is to study at college or university then get a job with a fashion house as a junior member of the design team. This takes many years.
If you have a lot of talent, it is possible to start designing clothes and set yourself up as a fashion house. The downside is that this requires a lot of money.
If shelling out a fortune or spending years studying fashion design is not appealing to you, or simply not an option, you could start with customised Flexfit hats. You may not be designing complete outfits, but it is a way to test out whether you can have commercial success with your design vision.
Benefiting from the Yupoong Hats Wholesale Program
You can buy a number of blank Flexfit hats at wholesale price, and then customise them by attaching features. Perhaps hand-embroider designs, or add decorative features such as buttons and sequins – whatever your creative talent can come up with.
Alternatively, you can create a design using computer graphics software such as Adobe Illustrator, or Affinity Designer (a less expensive alternative to Illustrator) and arrange for Yupoong to print or embroider the design onto your hats. At Flexfit, we have expert designers who can help you with this.
If you use our Snapback hats, you only have to order one size. Minimum order sizes are low, so there is no need to invest a large amount of money to buy a few caps to customise and test out.
Your fashion brand needs to stand for quality. Flexfit hats are premium quality hats that fit with this image. Blank Flexfit hats look stylish and are worn by many different types of people. Your customisation should aim to improve its fashion appeal.
Selling your hats
There are many online sites to sell your customised hats. As well as major sites like eBay and Amazon, there are sites that specialise in handcrafted items ideal for hats you have hand customised.
You can sell your hats to clothing retailers. Setting up your own shop is expensive, but you may be able to arrange for a less expensive temporary pop-up shop. Events, festivals and markets have stalls that can be rented by the day.
You will need to do some marketing to get known. Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are free. Your own website need not be expensive – a domain name and basic hosting are cheap and systems like WordPress mean that non-professionals can create a good-looking website – but a professional web designer can make a big difference.
If you can afford it, spend some money on magazine advertising, Google Ads and other media that help raise your profile.
If you have a dream of being a top fashion designer, the Yupoong Hats Wholesale Program could be your first step towards that dream coming true.
