Designer Partnership Program

Fresh Collective offers local clothing and accessories designers and makers a great business opportunity in our Designer Partnership Program!

 

These are collaborative partnerships- a chance for designers to have a place to direct their audience to experience their product and an opportunity for us to introduce exciting new experiences to our loyal clientele. 

 

Our aim is to provide an exciting, valuable and unique retail experience for customers while providing business opportunities for emerging and established designers. And we believe that working together always brings amazing results!

 

We host regular events in our stores every month, including Designer Trunk Shows, Style and Networking Nights and other store activations. 

 

 

 

Our goal is to partner with brands that appeal to our clientele and will bring in a similar clientele. 

 

Perfect for online brands, emerging and established designers, we offer a variety of options to help you grow your business with us. 

 

Designers can participate at either location or both, depending on availability of space. 

Options range from two week Pop-Up Spotlights to Long Term Partnerships.

Why join Fresh Collective’s Designer Partnership Program?

 

We weren’t meant to do it alone. Working together always brings exponentially better results. This is an opportunity to dig in and connect with an established independent retailer, combine energy and talents and create something amazing. 

 

We offer: 

 

  • An established loyal clientele built up over decades

  • Marketing support
  • Professional and dedicated Store Managers and Style Coaches

  • Two gorgeous locations - Beaches in the east and Roncesvalles in the West

  • A commitment to being awesome

 

We've always been committed to more than just “selling dresses” - although we do love that part! 

 

Fresh Collective’s Mission Statement: To create a fashion retail experience that is authentic, joyful, individualized, connected and empowering; providing women the best in independent designer fashion for a full and busy life.

 

Each of our locations have regular customers who pop in to see the staff, to let them know how the job interview or date went, or to show off their new haircut. 

 

We pride ourselves on being part of the community, with awesome and joyful interactions with every person who walks through our doors (whether they buy or not) and our customers can tell.

 

We feel - and our customers affirm this - that Fresh Collective is more than just a store; it's a movement. 

 

Who are our typical customers? 

Our ladies are typically 35-58 or so. They tend to be teachers, therapists, entrepreneurs, professors, project managers and a variety of other professions. They're interested in the community and shopping local. They appreciate supporting small creative businesses and love feeling more connected to their purchases and the people who made them.

 

They generally have busy lives and varied schedules- dropping off kids, juggling a job and a side hustle, community and volunteer commitments and active social lives. This means they like outfits that can get them through the day in comfort and style, whatever they have going on. They love versatility, easy care, dresses with pockets and fun but not fussy style.

 

And they like to look polished and professional at work while still feeling like themselves.
