(Startup Story) Creating Multiple Streams of Income in the Fashion Industry w/ Tommie Hernández

We hear about the magic of multiple streams of income. But how does a fashion designer actually pull this off? 

Tommie Hernández is a Puerto-Rican fashion designer who has figured it out and she tells us her secrets today.

For 17 years she had a boutique-atelier where she made custom clothing and swimwear. She pivoted to owning an online fashion academy and the only Puerto-Rican sewing pattern company and sewing club: Sirena Patterns. She has over 2,000 students in her academy and sells the patterns to over 50 countries.

I learned a lot from Tommie in this episode and I think you will too.

  1. Excellent interview! Thank you so much for sharing.
    As a designer entrepreneur for over 20 years, it’s so great to listen to Tommie’s journey. It was also encouraging for me because I am also working on pivoting to another aspect of the business…and I think PDF patterns might be it!

    Awesome information and very inspiring!
