WHAT Start4Fashion can do for you?

I've created START4FASHION to share the EXACT steps I've taken to Start my own Fashion Businesses
Maiden-Art jewelry and Ebooks4fashion and to create a community of raving fans who are eager to buy from me.

But things weren’t always so sweet, trust me.

When I started in 2006 I didn't have a clear strategy and I didn't have anyone holding my back and guiding me.

I was Myself only with no plans, but with a burning desire to create my own business.

When I started with my fashion brand, I was creating clothes ad accessories and the best way to sell was at the expensive trade shows or in a showroom.

At that time I was working as a professor in Fashion Academies in Italy and I spent the whole money from my daily job, in trade shows and showrooms to sell my collection.

Unfortunately, I was so broke very soon,

- I was not able to sell enough clothes
to cover all the expenses.

- I didn't have a clear business plan and strategy.

- I was not sure how to attract the right customers.

- I din't know how to market my products.

- AND I didn't have anyone helping or guiding me step by step.

It was so stressful and frustrating, especially because I had a strong fear of failing starting my Fashion Business.


In less than a year after, I developed a system, that actually helped me to pay all my debt and get a profit.

This is WHAT I teach in START4FASHION:
a step by step guide to Start your Fashion Business in less than 90 Days.

Also, I have deepened her close acquaintance with the project, and I have once again noticed her extreme availability, customer attention, and the incredible professionalism she always shows.

I consider her a highly competent professional in every field of her business, besides being a very kind, helpful person and attentive to the needs of anyone who is addressing her.

I strongly recommend her Start4Fashion online course and her consultancy to everyone, it is a golden and all-rounder, both humanly and professionally."

Your Instructor

Maristella Colombo
Maristella Colombo

Hi there, Maristella Colombo's here! :)

I'm a Fashion Business Coach/Consultant for, a professor for several prestigious Fashion Academies in Milan, Italy (like Accademia del Lusso and IED, Moda Lab), a Jewelry Designer for my brand rockmantic jewelry, a Personal Shopper for, and a Visual Artist for

I lead an ever-growing community where I help fashion entrepreneurs to start or grow their fashion business and live the life of their dreams.

As a course instructor and a professor I've taught more than 3K+ students and as a business woman, I've turned my dreams in fashion into successful and profitable fashion businesses, living the life I've always wanted.

But things weren’t always so sweet, trust me.

I want to share with You my personal experience in the fashion business and what I learned in more than 10 years running my jewelry brand Maiden-Art.

Why i'm sharing my experience with You?

Because, I really hope that my experience can be inspiring for YOU, can make you thinking that IT'S TOTALLY POSSIBLE to start and grow a fashion business from scratch, whether is a product or service based business, only if you follow the right strategies.

When I started with my fashion brand, I was creating clothes ad accessories and more than 10 years ago, the best way to sell your collection was at a trade show or to find a showroom/rep.

Trade shows were so expensive, from $5K to $10k per each show and if you were accepted after sending your application at least 6-8 months before, you had to book your space, paying at least 50% off the price of the show and the rest, a month before the show.

Can you imagine how much money I spent many months before the trade shows only to book a space at them, without including the expenses to stay in hotel and the travel to go to the show, without knowing if I would have found buyers at the show, interested in my collection?

I know right now, It sounds so crazy, but when I started there were NO Facebook, Social Media, E-commerce etc…to use and to get known from the press and from retailers, the only way was to be seen at trade shows.

The second step was to find a showroom or sales rep interested in your collection.

I'm telling You this, because when I started the only money came from my work as a professor at IED- Moda Lab, a fashion school in Milan and the money I won from a European Funds competition for supporting new entrepreneurs.

Basically, what I did, I invested everything in my fashion business:

producing the samples and booking a space at the most important trade shows in Italy and in Europe, if my applications were accepted.

My applications were accepted and so, I could go to show my collections of clothes and accessories at the trade shows.

Unfortunately, things didn't go as I expected.

In a few years I've lost everything I earned, because the orders I received, were not even enough to cover the trade shows expenses.

At one trade show (Pitti Immagine in Florence, Italy), I had to change (just few days before the show) what I was going to show, because my samples were not ready for the trade show. I had to produce myself some jewelry in exchange of my clothing collection not ready!

If I didn't do that, my booth at the trade show would have been left empty.

That's how I changed my clothing brand into a jewelry brand Maiden-Art.

To make it short: from all the trade shows, from the research to find showrooms/sales reps and from producing samples, I've lost $50K !

Yes you heard right $50K!

In 2010 I've been in debt of $50K and I am not ashamed of telling you that!

Why? Because It was for me a BIG BIG BIG lesson to learn!

From that experience, the year after, I got in net profit of $35K, so I paid all my debt of $50K plus a profit of $35K.

How I did it?

1) I invested in myself.

What I mean is: I started to learn more of what I didn't know,

MARKETING & SALES (I come from a creative background, I'm a visual designer and a fashion designer).

AND also I learned to shift my mindset.

I took as many online courses as possible about marketing/sales and I started to follow inspiring people that could keep me on track.

2) I started to understand better and deeper my Customers and Dream Customers.

I focused my attention to understand more who they were, their problems, how I could help them with my products, how I could satisfy their needs and giving them benefits.

3) I started to build my EMAIL LIST of potential customers interested in my jewelry collections.

I focused more my attention online, but never forgetting the offline world.

Every occasion, where I could find my dream customer, was the perfect one to offer value in exchange for my audience's email list.

Every day, I focused my attention to build my email list and to grow the relationship with my dream customers.

In this way, I could get back on track in my fashion business, but with a more deep knowledge of myself and more confident on what my dream customers really needed.

So, in conclusion, don't give up on your fashion business, stay focused on your dream customers needs, provide them great value for free, build a true relationship with them and grow your email list every day!

This is what I teach in all of my courses, online trainings and coaching/consultingservices and so You have come to the perfect place to create the Fashion Business and Life You DREAM.
