The aim of this fundraising campaign is to allow Modascky Haute Couture to raise enough funds from backers to attend and market our designs at upcoming tradeshows.
Of course tradeshows are just the tip of the iceberg for us. Ultimately we are looking for that stepping stone to launch us into this ever competitive yet exciting industry.
As a new designer it is vital to get exposure in this ever-crowded and competitive market. Trade shows are a great opportunity to show potential buyers and investors first hand what your brand is like and what sets you apart from all others.
Attendance at tradeshows can be incredibly expensive for emerging designers but also incredibly valuable for future growth. It will allow the brand to establish itself as a serious fashion house within the industry.
It is also important for us to launch a marketing campaign that allows us to gain sufficient exposure nationwide. This will involve a great deal of online marketing through social media campaigns, website promotions etc.
BUYERS and STOCKIST
There are a plethora of fashion stockists out there for an emerging designer to utilise; but of course in order to place our brand with any stockist (either online or in a physical store) we need to secure funds to keep our brands in stock at all times. As an example a stockist may charge a designer £200- £300 per month to keep and sell their designers. This therefore requires a long term commitment from us.
Once buyers are secured we must ensure we have sufficient funds to manufacture our designs on a wholesale level. Often buyers will not pay a designer until work is complete and delivered therefore a healthy cash reserve is important for us to meet our commitments on time and on budget.

Manufacture and Production
Stocking (online and in-store)
To reach our target and meet all deliverables we will need some extra helping hands. The money raised will also help to hire, train and pay our employees for manufacturing and production of our garments. Our manufacture and production is based in two locations; UK and Mauritius.
Modasckky Haute Couture is a fashion brand that designs and manufactures luxury, high fashion womenswear. The brand was created in 2015 by Sylvia Modasckky who is currently the head designer and creative director.
Its' first collection in the summer of 2015 was lovingly designed and personally made by head designer Modasckky. The brand is determined to create beautiful and timeless designs that sits comfortably between high fashion and affordable luxury. It is Modasckky's belief that everyone deserves to look and feel great.
The brand is influenced by nature and architecture with their many complexities; intricate designs, asymmetry and visual aesthetics. The fabrics used by the brand are typically luxurious laces and brocades with understated ornamentation.
The brand’s motivation is simple; to design dresses that fit beautifully and enhance a woman’s body. Careful attention to detail and the desire for perfection drives Modasckky. This principle applies from the very first sketches drawn to the quality fabrics sourced by the brand; the suave execution, the artistic placement of embellishments and the final fit of the garments.
Thank you to all our supporters and pledgers and everyone who believes in our vision.
