About Sophie, founder of Stand Twelve
Long before the words social distancing had entered our vocabulary I had an idea; to create a platform that would make wholesale more accessible for independent creative brands. Not a replacement for trade fairs, but an additional, online resource for independents to grow their visibility, credibility and businesses through wholesale. It would enable retailers to discover and buy from small businesses with favourable payment terms, 365 days a year.
What do some of the industry experts have to say?
“Love this idea! A great initiative in response to a need for change. We understand that new and emerging talent can not always afford to showcase at big shows. Buyers also struggle for time to travel so having an online platform as an alternative way to connect is a win all round in my eyes!” Sarah, buyer at John Lewis & Partners
“…a great idea! Wholesale can be pretty daunting when you start out. I’m sure there are loads of creatives who need you!” Folksy
“…having access to this selected database any time of year really opens up opportunities.” Chris & Becca, Truce
“…the huge outlay of time and money that goes into traditional trade shows – it’s about time to disrupt that model. ” Yeshen Venema, photographer
“…there’s a big gap for projects like yours. There’s plenty of people creating design companies but coming from areas where they haven’t used any marketing or business related resources at all; not to mention contact with retailers.” bcn_tku, artist
“…the cost of trade fairs was so out of budget with no guarantee of even getting orders to cover it… There is a definite need for what you are doing…” Kate Campbell, designer & stylist
“I … think it’s a great resource for buyers who want to find new and exciting products outside of the trade show season.“ Catherine Erdly, Future Retail
