Factory45 Week 1: Yep, I'm Really Launching My Own Sustainable Fashion Brand!

So I've finally started my accelerator course with Factory45.  When I decided I wanted to do a sustainable handbags and accessories line, I knew I had the passion but it was a really overwhelming notion. I remember starting my search for factories and thinking "Oh My God" where exactly do I start in all this. I had a concept, I had design ideas and I knew I needed factories, lol... that was about it.  The first thing I thought to do was pray, I asked God to guide me in the right direction if this fashion line was something I should even do.  No kidding, 2 days later I received an email from Shannon of Factory45 letting me know about her Sustainable  Fashion accelerator course.

When I had made the decision to do my bag line I said I wanted it to be sustainable and made in the USA so it really was the perfect match, furthermore I had a goal to launch in Fall of 2017 and with the Factory45 it felt like I could really stay on track. I can;t express how excited I am about all of this, can't wait to share my journey with you all! Make sure you keep following along on the blog for weekly updates!

Aww now I feel awful lol. After Week 2 (http://ifemedow.com/2016/06/17/factory45-week-2-im-a-material-girl/), I actually made the decision that I wouldn’t be doing a fully vegan line. I do want to make sure the materials I use are ethically sourced though. I’ve found some great recycled options from animals, plants, etc so I wanted to be flexible but still eco-friendly :)

I really appreciate your support and you leaving feedback!
