8 Business Guides For Parents With Fashion Start-Up Ideas
1. Custom Clothing Services
Custom clothing is quickly taking the fashion industry by storm. There are many reasons for this but it’s mainly thanks to all its benefits.
Custom clothing offers a better fit, it’s made of quality materials, lasts longer, and it’s more sustainable.
You can design custom t-shirts, hoodies and other clothes online with the help of a printing company.
Now is the perfect time to make the most of the custom fashion clothing business. You can start a made-to-order brand that will design and manufacture clothing when customers order it. To help you out in this business endeavor, you can invest in Unmade software that will help you automate your design and manufacturing processes.
2. Rental Clothing Service
More and more people are turning toward greener and more sustainable ways of living. And as you know, clothing production is one of the most significant pollutants. To be able to wear clothing that they need without contributing to environmental pollution, people are looking for other eco-friendly ways.
That’s where you can come in with your rental clothing startup business. As a fashion rental clothing business, you can present customers with a pretty sustainable option – a place where they can rent all the clothing they need without filling up the closet with new garments.
3. Alteration Clothing Services
If you have some sewing experience, offering clothing alteration services can be a good startup idea. Make the most out of your sewing skills and mend and alter clothing from your home.
As an entrepreneur parent, this startup idea is perfect. You’ll work from home, where you can both look after the kids and do your job. You can offer alteration services to individuals or organizations such as fashion retailers, bridal boutiques, uniform retailers, and so on.
4. Bridal Boutique Clothing Service
If you want to be a part of someone’s happily ever after, you can do so by opening a bridal boutique. In this boutique, you can sell female bridal wear – from wedding dresses to shoes and accessories.
Owning a bridal boutique can be a very lucrative fashion clothing business if you know exactly how to make the most of it. In addition to selling bridal wear, you can also offer tailoring services, if you possess the skill. Knowing how to alter wedding dresses and gowns can be very useful in this line of work.
Your clients would be people who either don’t have time to do their own clothes shopping or hate shopping in general.
Your customers will rely on you and your expertise to get them the clothing they need or recommend something that suits them well. You’ll need to know all the latest fashion news and trends and get to know your clients, their tests, preferences, and styles.
6. Online Maternity Clothing Store
As a mother, you know how appropriate and comfortable maternity clothing can be when you’re expecting it. If you’re passionate about creating comfortable, functional, and stylish fashion maternity wear, you should consider opening an online maternity clothing store.
Every woman deserves to feel good and comfortable in her clothes while she’s pregnant. You can help out all expecting mothers by offering affordable maternity garments online.
7. Offer Sewing Classes
If you’re a skilled fashion tailor, your other business option could be offering sewing classes. As a professional tailor, you can offer everything from beginner to advanced courses.
Sewing is a useful skill and if you have skill and knowledge that you can share with others, why not make the most of it? You can go a step ahead and offer courses for specific sewing techniques if people are interested.

8. Thrift shop
Thrift shopping and second-hand retail are two fashion trends that everyone is following. It all started with influencers and vloggers and their thrifting escapades. Now, everyone is thrifting.

Whether you choose to open a brick-and-mortar or an online thrift store, that’s up to you. The goal is to sell high-quality and well-maintained second-hand clothing. You can test your success with those popular pop-up shops.
