Jane’s List of Resources for Fashion Designers

Resources for fashion designers

I get asked for recommendations all the time. Here’s my personal list. – Jane

E-Commerce Platform

  • Shopify – If you’re serious about selling your products online, this is really the only platform I recommend. It’s the best.  “Your customers are shopping online, in person, on mobile devices, and with social media. Reach them all with one platform.” – Shopify. Click here for more information.

Startup Books

There are a number of good ones, but these are my two favorites right now:

Email Marketing

Fabric Sourcing


  • The Contractors – list of cut and sew contractors in North America .”The Contractors” is for you if you JUST want the sewing contractors list and NOT the fabric and trim resource list. (If you want both, purchase the Sourcer’s Guide). “The Contractors” lists companies that provide pre-production services, cutting, sewing, and various finishing processes/ techniques. Services include sample makers, cutting, sewing, and finishers (e.g. dyeing, washing, lamination). Click here for the list.
  • Human B Consulting – I’ve worked closely with Boaz David from Human B Designer for a number of years and cannot recommend him enough. He’s based in NYC and he’s my go-to guy to help designers with product development and manufacturing. Click here to check out humanb.com and what they offer.


Please Note: I want to be completely transparent with you and let you know that I may receive a small referral commission on some of these links if you decide to make a purchase. I can assure you I am only recommending what I believe in and take your trust in my recommendations very seriously. – Jane
