Fashion Equipped | Opportunity for AFC Members

What is SYFB?

Start Your Fashion Business, or ‘SYFB’, is a leading online education programme, designed to empower fashion business owners to build and run a successful and forward-thinking fashion business in ‘REAL TIME’.  Whether our clients are just starting out with an idea, or already in full swing and trading, the SYFB programme is perfectly suited to all fashion business owners at whatever stage they’re at in their business journey. SYFB consists of a wealth of online learning materials including video guided tutorials, strategic action plans and ‘done for you’ tools and templates that can be accessed anywhere at any time.  Members are able to complete the ten module materials at their own pace and convenience. The programme can be completed in anywhere between 12 weeks to 12 months, and the ‘evergreen’ model means you can start at any time.

Possibly one of the most beneficial elements of SYFB is its tight-knit community of members and professionals. Upon enrolment, access is granted to an exclusive Facebook group which connects our members past and present, and opens up a network of like-minded people who all want to learn and support each other’s journeys. Periodical ‘Coaching Calls’ are a valuable part of the learning experience and are an important way for fellow learners to share and workshop their ideas, building lasting relationships and professional connections and encouraging collaborations along the way.

The testimonials received for the SYFB Programme and One to One Consulting have confirmed to Elizabeth and the Fashion Equipped team why they do what they do! We are fortunate that our Fashion Equipped clients are generous with their feedback and have said that engaging in consultancy and online learning was the best thing they’ve ever done for their business.  With the experience opening doors, breaking down barriers, overcoming challenges, providing upskilling and bringing motivation to keep moving and improving.  Ultimately fostering business GROWTH.



Fashion Equipped has also recently announced a new membership offering featuring access to the world’s leading trend forecasting platform, WGSN. The SYFB Premium membership is designed to deliver the entire package for up-and-coming fashion business owners, offering the full SYFB learning experience, as well as access to WGSN to inspire creativity and keep in touch with current and upcoming trends.

SYFB + WGSN is the ultimate offering for anyone looking to fast track their fashion business from an idea to reality, and until now, WGSN has been out of reach for many aspiring fashion business owners. Elizabeth has been a tenacious advocate of WGSN and is extremely proud to bring this incredible offering to our SYFB Premium members who are all are raving about the ways accessing WGSN has enriched their learning experience and enhanced the development of their business.
