What makes the Members' Club different?

We walk the talk

We have worked with hundreds and hundreds of apparel brands and helped them start and grow their businesses. Alongside Apparel Entrepreneurship we also run a Technical Apparel Design Agency where we work in the industry and apply everything we teach to midsize -big brands.

Peer support

You are the average of the 5 people you hang out with. Your community and your peers help you level up and reach higher than you would by yourself. As entrepreneurs, we're sometimes so much in our heads. We can't think straight, and having help from other peers in the same situation can be extremely valuable for your growth.

A gold mine

All the material inside is accumulated and perfected from 20 years in the apparel industry. Many of the tools, templates, and calculators only exist inside the Members' Club, and nowhere else.

No B.S.

As you know, we hate BS, fluff and blah blah. We want to go straight to the point, straight to the action and implementation. Therefore, all our content is pure value.

Always with you

24/h access. Get access to all material whenever you need it. From your office, when you’re at the factory working on your products, or when you are in a meeting. Access from your computer or your phone.

More than product development

The Members' Club is for all stages of your business; management, finances, branding, product development, marketing, and sales.

"Since joining the AE Members Club I have been able to find manufacturers, use the calculators to help me understand my pricing and budget and utilized the social media content plan for my IG page. I really enjoy how the tools and checklists allows me to become more organized when planning my brand and reassures me I’m completing everything that will make my business a success. Ana & Klas also answer any questions that I had quickly and the monthly live video calls clarified anything I needed help with in that moment. It’s definitely worth it!"
Ciara Robinson
AE Member - USA
"When joining the AE Membership Program I finally started thinking like the CEO of my company instead of being an artist lost in the business world. I have major improvements with the overall business organization and Ana & Klas gave me tools and knowledge to be more confident in managing everything better. I highly recommend the membership because you don’t have to tap in the dark alone, you have people with knowledge and experience to guide you, and tons of help from the resources and tools to manage business easier and better. Ana & Klas really think about you and your progress. You already get the great stuff from the membership itself but the fact that they really care about how you are doing, it amazes me. It has motivated me to create the brand that I want and be the leader I want to be:)"

It has helped me build up a brand image, get a small team together and to create a clear business plan. I have also expanded my business process and seen growth on my Instagram following. Since joining I have seen my own creativity flourish. There are no words to describe how exceptional what you guys are doing is. It’s not just educational, it’s also wellbeing."

Here’s what other members have to say about the Members' Club:

“Apparel Entrepreneurship is such a valuable asset to any clothing brand. Ana and Klas both have a wealth of experience from setting up their own brands which means that the advice, based on these experiences, is realistic and actionable. They provide useful resources to help brands learn about the elements required for running a clothing line, and the tools and templates offered here are extremely valuable as they are hard to find elsewhere. “​

“Apparel Entrepreneurship’s focused pool of information, contacts, and templates is a service that I couldn’t get anywhere else. I am coming from another industry and for me, AE is both a crash course and a support system to make my development process both faster and more accurate. I’m also looking forward to seeing how the community grows and I expect that to be another source of valuable information and support as I’m preparing to launch and then grow my brand.”​

 

-Joonas Luotonen

AE Member – Finland

“I’ve been struggling with my clothing brand for some time.  After joining AE, I accomplished things in only one month I didn’t think was possible. I have saved so much time… and money. Now it feels as if I have a private mentor sitting right next to me, telling me exactly what to do. I highly recommend AE to everyone that wants to grow their clothing brand.”​​

Not sure if the Members' Club is right for you?

The Apparel Entrepreneurship Members’ Club is NOT for everyone. 

We’d prefer to help you figure out if it’s right for you or not before you join, so you don’t have to waste your time or money….

The Members' Club is for:

The Members' Club is NOT for

We think the Members' Club is awesome. As we mentioned, we wished we had this platform when we started out, but don’t just take our word for it. Hear what other people have to say about it:

“Starting my own brand seemed like a too big of a project for me to embark on. I didn’t know where to start, what questions to ask or where to turn. Ana and Klas at Apparel Entrepreneurship, helped me with everything! Their combined knowledge and experience is impressive. They set the tone for what was to come, they gave me guidance of where to start, from branding, marketing, hangtags, to neck and size labels, to patterns, fabric, and manufacturer hunting. They walked with me every step of the way and having them as a guide made the journey feel safer and they do push things forward. You’re never standing still and if I ever had any questions – they’re super quick to answer. The best part was that they are so passionate and invested in the work that they do. They genuinely care and they want you to succeed.”​

“Apparel Entrepreneurship helped me to finally start working with confidence on my brand. I did not know anything about how to start fashion brand etc. The amount of knowledge and information that is available from Apparel Entrepreneurship is invaluable. It guided me into the right direction when it came to what to do and what not do to. Thank you Ana & Klas!”​​

 

-Phil Nelson

AE Member – Holland

“I started my company with basically zero knowledge about the apparel industry. With no network, no experience not even basic industry knowledge. The complexity of it is frightening ….so frightening, that at one point I was on the verge of giving up. And this is when I came across the Apparel Entrepreneurship community. It was like getting a structured handbook – it’s extremely useful! Access to many years of industry expert knowledge, giving me a strong basis and opening my eyes to directions, trends and necessities I haven’t even though of before……and whenever I’m stuck or in doubt, I can always count on the community to help me out. I can’t express how grateful I am to Ana and Klas for starting this! Thank you! “
