When Hula Global collected her fashion design degree, she stepped into the real world with the same question that plagues creatives of all ilks: what now?
Fashion school taught her about pattern grading, sewing, drawing, and draping. She could drop a mean french seam. She could tell you everything about fit. Her education, however, didn’t prepare her to actually start a successful clothing line. These were skills she learned over the past 11 years while she worked for other clothing brands, and through taking risks.
To go from business idea to creating your own clothing line, and making it in the frenzied world of style takes a specific set of skills, plus a generous dose of creativity and business savvy. It takes guts and a lot of drive.
