'Husband and wife duo, Mel & Dean Flintoft, founded Australian Fashion Labels in 2007, a business that now has 5 fashion labels sold throughout the world, both online and through 1700 stockists in 26 countries. As you can imagine, the fashion world has changed dramatically since 2007. In our conversation, we discuss: • Starting a business in the Global Financial Crisis with no money • Disrupting an industry that was doing seasonal collections (4 per year), by producing 12 collections per year (500+ new products every month!) • The change in retailing, including bricks & mortar, online and department stores • How to succeed in an industry that is “low barrier to entry”, but “high barrier” to success It’s a great story – I LOVE the fact, as a husband and wife team, they work so well together. I hear plenty of stories from businesses that are family-based where being related isn’t a good thing. https://www.theselfmadetheory.com/post/australianfashionlabels Until next time….keep INNOVATING, OVERCOMING and PROSPERING CONTACT DETAILS FOR MEL, DEAN & AUST FASHION LABELS Web: https://www.australianfashionlabels.com.au/ https://fashionbunker.com/ Linkedin: https://au.linkedin.com/in/dean-flintoft-4335b893 https://au.linkedin.com/in/melanie-flintoft-39276094 https://au.linkedin.com/company/australian-fashion-labels-pty-ltd Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thefashionbunker/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/fshnbnkr/ https://www.instagram.com/finderskeepersthelabel/ https://www.instagram.com/keepsakethelabel/ https://www.instagram.com/thefifthlabel/ https://www.instagram.com/cmeocollective/ https://www.instagram.com/jaggarthelabel/'See also:
