The Assemblist Letter 26 - Notes On Women's History Month
THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS DOMINATED BY WOMEN IN DESIGN JOBS, BUT AS YOU GET TOWARDS THE TOP OF LARGE COMPANIES IN THE INDUSTRY IT IS STILL SOMEWHAT OF A “BOYS CLUB.”
Brand Assembly was founded by focusing on the “business” side of the fashion industry. The Brand Assembly approach of teaching and guiding these women designers to understand their business on a deeper level will hopefully prime these business-women to think more strategically about their endeavors and empower them to learn more about all aspects of the industry.
This by circumstance happens to be what we promote and support! We started with a focus on the contemporary design scene and as a woman in business myself (even though I have a male business partner) I tend to gravitate towards working with women in general. It’s a nice happenstance! For us to be able to bring women together to create that sense of community has been very rewarding. Seeing how these women are collaborating, which I don’t think has always been the case for women in this industry, has been a nice plus. We look forward to continuing fostering this at The Brand Assembly Square and beyond!
