Our firm presents a rare opportunity to break into the the highly profitable, niche field of luxury resort wear eCommerce with a stunning, SBA pre-approved opportunity. A decade and a half of experience and superior quality products have netted this stunning retailer a loyal following for its pioneering, ultra-fine organic cotton wear – a resource that has become hard to come by in today’s fashion landscape. The company took on the insightful strategy of searching for a small cooperative of family farms in India that were milling the ideal fabric, and then contracted with them to get the material needed. This ultra-fine, in-demand fabric is delivered to U.S. factories that manufacture their lightweight cotton dresses, cover ups, lounge pieces and intimates. Over the past decade, this business has grown its customer base handsomely, and are now dressed for success as a well-loved clothing brand offering people an enduring, effortless style that never goes out of fashion.

People know what the brand name means. Launched 15 years ago as a passion project for the owners, it has come a long way. This company’s name means something to its loyal customer base. It’s become recognized as a reliably faithful source in the stainable luxury and resort wear categories – which have been cited by The Wall Street Journal as two of the hottest categories in fashion today.
This brand now brings impressive strengths and resources to bring to the table that are likely to make any buyer quickly take notice. A significant aspect of their appeal was the development of its own luxury brand literally from scratch, taking high-quality material from the factories in India to manufacture their outstanding clothing line. Everything the brand makes is uniquely their own. They design each piece, finessed with local patternmakers and graders for sizing. Their top selling pieces have become their bloomers and core intimates, and with an Average Order Value of $350, customers know they’re getting quality. For more than a decade, this brand has been giving people the impression that they’re getting and wearing something rare, and entirely unique.

Wholesale accounts are thriving as well. With 60 SKUs, 60% of the company’s gross profits are from wholesale, and 40% is DTC through their eCommerce site. But their wholesale accounts are growing quickly. In the past, the company had around 70 wholesale customers, often placing smaller orders. But that channel is evolving as more specialized e-tailors have started reaching out to them. In response, the brand has started making exclusive goods for some top online retailers.

Take the case of their main wholesale account, which has made immediate re-orders atypical of the industry, and shown an interest in expanding into the fall/winter clothing line. The brand now has a staggering 80+% sell through on Matches, which delays markdowns of what they have left for months longer than most brands. Matches has also requested more XL, plus and full-figured sizes. More recently, the brand was invited to be part of Maisonette, a platform for moms that markets maternity pieces. The researching phase of designing for this market has started, offering the brand an opportunity to take their proven quality SKUs and design them specifically for expecting moms.
