Private Costing Consulting

NEED HELP WITH YOUR PRODUCT COSTING AND PRICING STRATEGY FOR YOUR LINE?

Costing your product correctly is the most important aspect of your fashion business. As a manufacturer, there are many components as well as the labor costs that have to be accounted for correctly to determine your selling price.

It is crucial that your product will have enough margin to be PROFITABLE (especially during the start-up phase). This costing and pricing session includes:

  • Cost Sheet form –  Easy to use, customizable excel sheet template with built in formulas where all you'll need to do is entering the cost of the different components and the form will automatically calculate the total cost, margins, suggested wholesale price and suggested retail price.
  • One on one private session – Personal training on how to use the cost sheet form as well as going over your specific product cost and developing a price strategy for your fashion business.

You will walk away from this session with a very clear idea of how to calculate the cost of your product, as well as what should be your wholesale and retail prices, what is your mark-up at start-up and how to improve it as your business grows.

I am a fashion designer, why do I need a business plan?

I first started working with Boaz around Fall 2013 when I was at the very beginning of building my fashion brand. Having zero experience in the industry meant I was totally lost, overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. It was time to find some help. I discovered Human B consulting online, saw he had an impressive background of working with startups as well as reputable brands and thought I should give him a try. Sure enough my first consulting session proved to be so helpful I really couldn’t have been more pleased. The most valuable aspect of his services is that he doesn’t just guide you towards where you should be going, but he tells you HOW to get there. He gets into all the specific details (and there are many) that you really need help with when you are a new designer. I’ve worked with a few different consultants throughout my journey so far and Boaz has definitely been the most helpful and by far.

The difference this program made in my business is monumental. Prior to the consulting sessions, I was very confused about my potential customer, my positioning, timing of when to launch, and my initial line plan. After the consulting sessions, I’m much more clear on my business and now see it as a real business that I’m preparing to launch.
— Christine Kim
Thank you so much for meeting with me. You have been most kind and helpful. I am so grateful that you are such an honest man. You make me think instead of only trying to get my business. I have only nice words to say of you to anyone who might need your service.

I recently met with Boaz David for a one-session sourcing consultation, I am starting to produce swimwear in NYC, so I had many questions about fabrics, costs, and wholesale sources. I knew from the minute I walked in that he had thought about my business and had prepared thoroughly. He had learned about my top competitors and how I am positioning my swimwear. He had prepared a list of fabric sources to meet my specifications, and was able to talk me through likely costs and timelines. His manner is warm, direct, very encouraging and very professional. I left feeling very grateful and fortunate to have met Boaz. He has my strongest recommendation.
