How Harrison Blake Apparel Got Started...

Posted by Rich Taylor on

Starting a business isn't easy - especially if you're talking about a fashion business (outside of NY or LA). I share my story of starting Harrison Blake Apparel in Michigan and how we began offering smaller accessories and grew to delivering custom suits and custom shoes to customers worldwide. Learn how you can start with an idea and little funds, using social media and strategic partnerships to grow a brand to over 100K followers on Instagram. 

This is part one of a six part series that chronicles the step by step growth of our business and allows any budding entrepreneur to replicate our process. Being a custom clothier and men's fashion business owner has been such an exciting ride and I thought it would be great to share some of the backstory. A lot of customers have expressed their pleasure in supporting a Michigan based custom suit brand and shoemaker. We hope that the enthusiasm continues and that we can develop great relationships in our home State and also globally!
