Fashion Brand Consultancy

In the heart of the fashion world, where creativity meets commerce, the concept is just the beginning. Transforming this concept into a successful, market-ready collection requires expertise in several key areas. At MAES London, we offer bespoke consultancy services that encompass every stage of this transformation, from initial brand development to final sample and production. Our approach is tailored to empower designers in navigating the complexities of running a fashion business and streamlining collection development.

The Genesis of a Fashion Concept: Brainstorming and Research with MAES London

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and in fashion, it starts with brainstorming and research. What ignites your passion? What story do you wish your collection to narrate? What does your brand stand for? Our consultancy services are tailored to help you pinpoint the essence of your inspiration, shaping it into a coherent and compelling narrative. The journey starts with an idea, a vision. MAES London facilitates brainstorming sessions, encouraging designers to explore diverse sources of inspiration. Research is the scaffold upon which a robust fashion concept is built. We then dive into in-depth research, looking beyond fashion to art, culture, and global trends, ensuring your concept is both unique and relevant. 

Experimentation and Range Development: The MAES London Approach

Creativity flourishes in the realm of experimentation. At MAES London, we encourage designers to push boundaries and explore uncharted territories in fabrics, textures, silhouettes, and palettes. Our consultancy services guide designers through the crucial phase of experimentation. We encourage exploring with design elements, techniques, and fabrics, crucial for range development. This process ensures a collection is not just aesthetically pleasing but also cohesive and marketable.

Communication and Moodboard Creation: Articulating Your Vision

A concept's success is determined by how effectively it is communicated. Articulating your vision is essential. At MAES London, we assist in distilling your concept into a clear, concise, and compelling narrative by developing moodboards and narratives that resonate with your target audience; ensuring the collection tells a captivating story. Our expertise ensures that every aspect of your collection - from the smallest stitch to the overarching theme - echoes your concept with clarity and creativity.

    In a world awash with trends and replicas, originality is your greatest asset. Our consultancy at MAES London focuses on honing your unique voice and vision.
