Starting a Fashion Clothing Store

  • 9 expert advise

Fashion Clothing Store is not an easy business but once you learn the tricks it will give you a lot of profit.

Undoubtedly, if you are thinking about opening a fashion clothing store, then you must be into fashion.

clothes in fashion

But who isn’t? Everybody is into fashion. It is the individual taste in fashion that differs from person to person. Anywhere you go, fashion clothing stores are always making brisk business. That is also precisely the reason why a fashion clothing store needs to have an edge over its competitions. There are just too many fashion clothing stores out there.

Most successful fashion clothing stores have a few things in common: competitive prices, a great selection of clothes and accessories, attractive packaging (marketing) and yes, a catchy name / brand / tag. Thinking of a name for your business is a tricky endeavor. You obviously want your patrons to remember your store, but you also want them to associate the name of the store with your merchandise.

Before you open your own fashion clothing store or fashion boutique, you may want to think about what “theme” or specialization of clothes you may want to sell. There are a lot, a few examples include: bridal or wedding boutique, business clothing boutique, casual wear / rough gear / street clothes, children’s wear boutique, couture, formal wear boutique, lingerie, maternity store, men’s wear boutique, special size boutiques (petites, plus size, tall, etc.,) sports wear / active wear, teen gear, women’s wear boutique, etc.

You may also want to consider if you want to sell accessories, hats, belts and shoes in your fashion clothing store. Because you are the owner of the store, your creative prowess will constantly be challenged when you present the public your wares. Attention to detail in window presentation, store lighting, rack displays and even that touch of personal service will all come into account when you open your fashion clothing store.

There are two kinds of fashion clothing stores: retail fashion store and fashion boutique.

Retail fashion specializes in selling new clothing products created by fashion designers which may (or may not) be dictated by celebrity trends. Some retail fashion stores have gone to such specialized extent that they only offer the works of their in-house designers. Others have a number of brand names and designer names offered in one roof.

Fashion boutiques, on the other hand, are more (for lack of a better term) chic or upscale. Personalized service, cozy ambience and unique merchandise are offered here – and patrons of such places usually expect nothing less.

Another huge factor about launching your own fashion clothing store is your business location. Malls are popular places for such stores, but they do come with steep rents, and a lot of competition. Stores that sell outside such establishments may have less overhead expenses but may also have less foot traffic. Your prospective market may also be an important element in choosing your business location. For example, teens frequent malls, and thereby is a great place to sell your line of teen wear and accessories. Couture clothing lines or vintage couture may not fare as well in the mall, but rather in some cozy niche in a chic part of town.

Pricing is important, as with the quality of the merchandise. Some clothing stores manage to pull off slightly higher pricing from its peers, but only because they have already established their brand names in the market. Since you are only starting or launching this business, you may want to refer to popular prices among your competitors. The quality of your merchandise should also be a great concern to you. Nothing will lose you more customers faster than poorly made clothes passed off as “fashionable” wear with very dear price tags.

Customer service is also a factor in most shops. Chic boutiques make this a top priority, even offering coffee or tea to its patrons. However, if you prefer a retail fashion store set-up, remember to keep a friendly atmosphere in your shop. It will encourage your potential customers to ask for your advice on fashion trends, or gift suggestions and even a whole fashion ensemble – which may mark you a returning customer or greater sales.

Another matter to consider is the safety of your store and merchandise. If you notice most, if not all fashion clothing stores have security measures against theft and break-ins. Some of them may go as sophisticated as a 24 hour video surveillance system. Others rely on tag systems. Check your budget first or your overhead expenditure rates as to what kind of security measures you may need and / or afford.

  • 78. Juan said on 5/22/2010 7:33:27 AM
    Hi this is Juan from D&D Barcelona
    To open a fashion store has a lot of aspect need to consider, place of the store, decide if street or shopping mall, check the around competence offers, designs, prices and sales value estimate. Check what they offer and with what price and then offer better and more beautiful similar products, with better prices.

    Talking about business is what will make your store successful, never think romantic ideas about offer your own designs or taste and believe people will like and buy no matter the price and so on.

    We are Spain fashion company with factory and stores in China, one of the most difficult countries in a matter of direct sales, and we are successful thanks to our way to work.

    I think in any country is the same, after all, one store reply to the demand of 1000 sqm population, it is so small quantity of potential customers, so is important to study them, different areas have different numbers, for example if your store is similar to H&M clothes, you have to find a place very busy every day, if near to university better, spend big money in decoration, and put beautiful and innovative designs with prices never over 20Euro, seems impossible but if you contact with me I will tell you how.

    Never make the mistake to open a store without checking all aspects, it is lose money for sure. Make money with a fashion store is so easy if you do it well and with business sense. :) hope this information can help.....

    Hello, This is a great forum. I am interested in buying directly from manufacturers / wholesalers and use my own private label which I am developing. My target audiences are women 25-35 in the Dominican Republic and I would like to offer good quality clothes at affordable prices. This is right now a one person business so I cant commit to purchasing minimums of 500 etc. Does anyone know of manufacturers that can offer these services? I currently live in the US. Any information would be greatly appreciated:

    @James, Thank you! I am open however, since i live in the us i think for shipping / communication purposes it may make my life easier to purchase from the US. If you have reliable abroad contacts I would love to reach out to them as well. I have reached out to a couple of companies abroad and their MOQ is HUGE... this is a small thing i am starting so of course i need to start small. Thanks for your help! greatly appreciated!
  • 173. James expert adviser said on 3/9/2011 8:20:12 AM
    @Lola, i don't have any leads from abroad that i can trust and refer to you but i know many talk about them online. Anyway, here are some resources to explore if you want to buy from US only. Try,, and you always can look for low end price stuffs in ebay and craigslist as well.

    Hi! I'm interested in opening a fashionable boutique for womens and I have no idea where to buy, where to look, where to shop.... The store will be in MARACAIBO, VENEZUELA. MANY THANKS
  • 176. James expert adviser said on 3/10/2011 10:50:36 PM
    @FABIOLA GARCIA, do your homework first. Is there a need of boutique in your city? If yes, do you have a good location already? Find a location. Do you know any local or nearby city wholesalers? You can also try online to find some local and international wholesalers.

    I am south african currently residing in a a small town in europe. I have an idea of setting up a store that sells only south african or (African for that matter) products.. for example, we have very talented designers in South africa and there is a store called YDE (Young Designers Emporium) as an example which i simply love.. Also, kids clothing from stores such as edgars, pep, ackerman are basically free compared to what they cost here. The cost of clothing is ridiculously expensive and people normally resort to buying second hand clothing (there are plenty of second hand stores) and i know that many people are not too fond of the thought of buying second hand. Apart from clothing. When i go back home on holidays, i normally have a list of goods to bring back here for people who want what we have... mainly clothes...i would like the store to have other african products too.. Art and decor supplies.. all imported from africa. hopefully this list will grow when i do more research. For now this is just an idea and of course, i have no experience and have not done my homework yet.. so basically my question is.. where do i start? Do i need a special license to be able to buy clothes from africa and sell them. I have a business license here which allows for import and export so on this side i am sorted. is it possible to buy from bigger stores in S.A such as ackermans for kids ( a much cheaper version of a store like H & M and good quality..)and sell it here without risking getting into some sort of trouble? sure you can tell how much i still have to learn ... :D any help is appreciated..
