The New York Fashion Retreat 2017

Are you a fashion designer,stylist aspiring fashionpreneur or boutique owner that is looking to launch their brand? Are you a fashion business owner that wants to expand into manufacturing and fashion shows? The New York Fashion Retreat has been created for you!

Join me, Jessica Williams as I guide you through the city that created the fashion industry in America. When I launched my brand,I struggled to find a manufacturing team and vendors to purchase wholesale from. It wasn't until almost 6 years later, I was able to secure a team to grow by business in New York and internationally. I want to save you the time and money I had to sacrifice when I launched. Today, my brand brings in over $104,000 in sales per year thanks to the network and garment district in NYC. Are you ready for the ultimate fashion experience? The February 2017 retreat was a true success! Look out for more date soon!

Notes from our attendees 

"It was all a dream...now it has has manifested itself in a way that is even beyond me. The NYC Fashion Retreat was one that I really have so many thoughts about. To sum it up though, it was everything to me. Everything! I'm excited because I have gained sisters and friends that I believe is necessary for the dimension that God is taking me through. I love you ladies. And Jess, you know how I feel about you. Thank you for allowing God to use you in such a way. He used you to breathe life into me."     -Anickia, Gird Intimate LLC
