    Find a job working for a clothing manufacturer .

    Any clothing company though if you can find one within your chosen genre even better ! If not take the job . learn and watch from every department . Even what you may consider boring or un creative . Accounting , shipping , sales , etcetera .

    Volunteer for a small company who may not have the funds to hire you . You could be a runner and just do the odd jobs no one has time for , breathe in the environment. You will learn who their suppliers & customers are . This is your higher education .

    From this foundation go and create your dream .

    Normally 3 ways clothing business can be started as follows:
    1. Manufacturing
    2. General trading
    3. Opening Buying House
    Before start any business need to know the law of country, place of business, competitors, information of market, make plan and vision and fix capital.

    It would be very useful to use dropshippers, in that case your risks / expenses are gonna be really low. Drop shipping companies basically do all work: they produce products, ship to customers and handle returns. All you need is a website. they will provide pictures which you can place on your website and once you get an order from online customer - you would notify dropshippers and they will do the rest. you keep the difference.

    I'd be concerned about where your Blue Ocean strategies are. IBISworld and Frost and Sullivan (the two largest researcher companies for business stuff) agree in the riskiness of that industry.

    http://media.ibisworld.com/2014/10/15/10-riskiest-industries-2014-2015/

    Looking at that report, it seems women apparel isn't doing well and with some authentic position you could revitalize the industry. Someone didn't tell it to Kanye and he lost an enormous amount of money in men's apparel (which also went down.) I'd try to see how I could authentically position my product before I ever touched the production part.

    Always do the conversation backwards.
    (In reverse)
    Who is going to pay me? (Businesses or Consumers)
    How do I get my product/service in front of them?
    What do they need to know/feel to feel comfortable making a decision?
    What is my product?
    How do I produce that product?
    Who can help me run my business?
    What documentation do I need to start my business?
    What is my unique value proposition?

    If you do it the other way (which most people do) you're likely to spend a lot of time and effort trying to understand the business monster and not making revenue (like most people do).

    The first step in starting a home clothing business is deciding what types of clothing to sell. It is more beneficial to sell a particular niche of clothing.

    whatever kind of dress you have, try to be more creative in a design, like eye catching design so when people see it they will be interested to take a look, much higher chance of a good profit
