If you plan to set-up a successful clothing business, one great way to start would be buying wholesale apparel from a reputable company that guarantees quality, style, and cost-effectiveness. Today, lots of wholesale companies are in the market and you can find them both in directories or on the Internet.
However, if you don’t want to settle for anything less than quality wholesalers with the best possible price then Los Angeles or New York fashion district are the best places to start. Of course this applies only if you are in based in California or New York. But if you have access to these places, you can walk around the streets of the fashion district area full of wholesale women’s clothing wholesalers offering off-price fashion apparel. If not, your best bet is scouring the wholesale apparel directories on the Internet and you will see a good number of stores located within the fashion district. Most of them have an online presence so buyers from anywhere in and out of country can find them. There are excellent sites where you can browse thousands of wholesale tops, bags, dresses, jeans, plus size clothing and more. On top of it, you can choose the styles you fancy based on your budget.
Aside from the women’s wholesale clothing and apparel, these establishments also sell niche items like overstock or off-price brand name fashion apparel such as Roca Wear, Rock Revolution, Forever21, Charlotte Russe to name a few. For those non-branded items, you can find just about anything from boys, men’s girls, juniors, for plus size only and of course the biggest market, women’s. They carry everything from wholesale accessories, fashion jewelry, halter, t-shirt, shorts, capris, bermuda, jackets, dresses and night gowns, skirts, sportswear, sweaters, pajamas, lingerie, outfit sets, you name it they have it all. Believe it or not even brand name cosmetics like Cover Girl, Revlon, Rimmel London and so much more.
Every season, all these clothing wholesale distributors add new selection to their inventory, adding new styles, colors and cut depending on the season. Whatever your market is, you definitely can find the right supplier for your needs in this area. Best of all, if you live outside the New York and Los Angeles area, their online presence gives you the convenience of making your inventory purchase from the convenience of your office or home. If you get lucky, you might even get “free shipping” depending on the purchase amount of your order. But even without the free shipping, if you can get all this items for 40% -80% below wholesale price, with no minimum purchase, that in itself is such a great deal!
If you don’t know where to start, here are some wholesale directories you can browse for inspiration. These directories cover everything from niche to wholesale products and services. Best sources are Wholesale Central, Top Ten Wholesale, Wholesale U, goWholesale or Liquidation.com. Or you can go to any search engine, preferably Google, and type keywords like wholesale clothing, wholesale apparel, wholesale women’s clothing, apparel wholesale, clothing wholesale or any of those combinations depending on what you are looking for. Bottom line is when you are looking for a certain item in the search engine, your keyword needs to be very specific to give you the best search result you are looking for. For example, if you are looking for women’s clothing, and you are retailer and this is for inventory buying, you always want to include wholesale and niche – say women, then the product itself. If not, and you type in very broad or general keyword, for example, apparel or clothing, it will give you hundreds of thousands if not millions of search result. Your time is best used in looking into your new supplier rather than spending hours and hours looking at every single one of the search result that the search engine gives you.
These are just a few of the many places where you can find your best clothing supplier. Watch for next article, and there will be more!
