Setting up a fashion business

If you love fashion and dream of having your own business you will want to put together a list of all the items that you want to sell. You also need to consider the ways in which you will keep your products safe and you may want to think about using a Security Seal like the ones available from to keep your high ticket items secure in your store.

Sweatshirts are a popular choice with both men and women of all ages as they offer styling and comfort all in one garment. If you want to add these to your items for sale you should look for some that cover the two material types below.

This fabric name is probably the most self-explanatory. In fleece-back fabrics, the underside has a soft and fleecy feel to it that is created by brushing the underside with sandpaper or wire brushes. It gives a velvety feel to the material and helps your sweatshirt to have that extra cosy feel. Whilst it is often a medium-heavy weight fabric and great for seasonal wear, this is a functional piece with a real snuggly feel.

Whilst this one is not as self-explanatory, the double face is made up of two interlocking knitted fabrics. Double knitting two single jerseys together keeps both the underside and outside of the fabric flat and means they have two ‘right faces’ or sides, which is perfect for a reversible sweatshirt. This fabric is one that is soft, stretchy and forgiving and is often described as a ‘sturdier’ fabric.
