FAQ

How can I meet the criteria to be added to the directory?

  • Designed, source and manufactured atleast a portion of your products in the UK.
  • Design and manufacture fashionable Mens or Womens clothing
  • Be an established clothing or shoe brand.
  • Have your own website where your products can be purchased by the public.

What is an established brand?

An established clothing or shoe brand refers to a company or label that has gained recognition, built a reputation, and achieved a significant presence within the fashion industry. These brands typically have a history of successful operations, a loyal customer base, and a strong market presence. They often have a well-defined brand identity, established design aesthetics, and a consistent product quality.

What about Makers? (Independents, Tailorers, Sewers etc)

At current, the directory is explicitly for established brands.

What is the difference between a maker and a established brand?

A maker refers to an individual or small-scale entity involved in creating or producing goods, often with a focus on craftsmanship and artisanal techniques. They are typically independent and may be involved in every aspect of the production process, from designing to manufacturing.

An established brand, refers to a well-known and recognized company or label that has gained a significant presence in the market. Established brands have typically built a reputation over time and often have larger-scale production capabilities. They may have a wider distribution network, brand recognition, and a more extensive product range.
