Fashion Angel helps young fashion entrepreneurs fly!

We are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with the government backed Start-Up Loans Company, to offer easy to access loans and business support to aspiring fashion industry entrepreneurs.

With London Fashion Week starting soon, highlighting the wealth of design talent and increasing number of fashion brands starting up new enterprises, we are delighted our popular mentoring and business support will now be available to new fashion businesses on the scheme, at the start of their business journey.

Involvement in this initiative continues our commitment to giving fashion brands the guidance and entrepreneurial skills they need to be successful.

Alison Lewy, Fashion Angel’s founder  welcomes this opportunity to support start up fashion businesses in this way

We are so pleased that we can help fashion start-ups get funding and business mentoring to help make their dream business a reality. Traditional lenders are often unsympathetic to lending to creative businesses, so it’s exciting to be able to offer an alternative funding route. As the only delivery partners specialising in this area, we are looking forward to playing an integral part to the success of these young entrepreneurs.”
We have already started approving loans and have now developed a very
simple on-line application process . We're on hand to support applicants both during the application process and while they get their business off the ground.

Start-Up Loans Company chairman, James Caan says”

 “Having started my first business in the fashion industry, I’m delighted to see a fashion-specific Partner on board to help support creative entrepreneurs turn their passion into a business. I believe this surge we are seeing from young people starting their own businesses is simply the beginning of an emerging and lasting trend in entrepreneurship in Britain”
 “Start-Up Loans are unsecured which is exactly what young people with no track-record of business or collateral need to get their idea off the ground. “

Come and find out if a Start Up Loan is right for you at our FREE talk and networking event, Finance for Fashion Start Ups in London on 27th March 2013, where successful Start Up Loan Ambassadors and loan recipients  will be on hand to share their experiences. Places are strictly limited and you can book your place on-line on the Fashion Angel events page
