I'm curious about how a streetwear/luxury boutique works. How do you get brands such as 10 Deep, Publish, BBC, Bape, Original Fake and etc. to send you apparel? Is there a certain specification you need in order for them to send you apparel? If so, what?

those type brands (well, not sure about publish) basically pick and choose who they want to work with but many of the smaller or more highly distributed brands (think diamond) are pretty much as easy as shooting them an e-mail and as long as you show you are legit and there's nobody selling it right next door (although diamond for example doesn't seem to care about that anymore) you can then BUY the products for wholesale

I am interested in starting a brand but not currently. I want to learn the clothing game first. I want to start a boutique and deal with other brands that I like and see how they change from season to season, see how they manufacturer their clothes, and all of that stuff.

@ rickylgnds It's as easy as sending an email? Haha, I guess having a nice store and website might help a lot.

I don't know how it work in USA but it seems a bit different in Canada. Most of the time if you want a Brand you gotta work with the Agency that carry it, if they don't then you work directly with the company. @ Saeedope You should attend the Magic In Las Vegas or the Agenda in NYC and ask alot of questions to the company, that will help you.

honestly, for a lot of brands it's that easy. some brands use selling agencies but that doesn't make it much more difficult....like i said you you do have to have some legitimacy to you, provide other brands you work with, etc. they dont just sell to ANYBODY but a lot aren't super picky either. the more high-end popular brands are going to be a little more difficult. i owned a boutique for about a year. i sold play cloths, diamond, LRG, supra, and more.

@ dmnc I looked up Agenda in NYC and their last two trade shows were on Jan. 23 & 24 :\
@ rickylgnds That's rather intriguing, I thought it would be a lot harder. Thanks for information

the only other thing that would be difficult is finding a space to lease for the boutique

Cash and a vision.


The vision part is most important, I think (I've never owned a boutique before). It seems though that most successful concepts, be it, brands or boutiques, are the ones with a vision viable for the consumer and that are aesthetically fresh and visually pleasing (in terms of your layout).

But C.R.E.A.M. is law.

Ah, thanks. The vision is definitely one of the needed aspects of a boutique.
