See if the AE Members' Club is for you
If you’ve read this far, you’re probably a great fit for the AE Members’ Club. But to be sure, check and see that you match the following criteria:
- You’re in the startup phase, working on your products and collection, and want to start in an organized matter.
- You’re running a brand and want to make strategic decisions and optimize its operations.
- You’re an ambitious person who wants to grow a profitable business.
- You want to upgrade your social circle and start hanging out with motivated people that help you be your greatest self.
- You’re coachable, ready to commit, and do the work to reach personal and business growth.
Who is the Members' Club NOT for?
- People who want to start an apparel business, that have just an idea and need a step-by-step framework. If that is the case THIS is much better suited for you.
- People looking for quick fixes and get rich fast solutions. Even though our tools and resources are designed to save you time and eventually money, you need to do the work it takes to run a profitable apparel business. The Members’ Club is not an overnight success pill. If you are looking for IDEAS to start your brand, the Members’ Club is not for you.
- If you need actual strategy sessions, branding, design, and product development work done by someone else, the membership is not for you. Check out desinder.com instead.
The Members’ Club will help you to:

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.”

“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.”

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.
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.
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.
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.
MORE THAN PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
The Members’ Club is for all stages of your business; management, finances, branding, product development, marketing, and sales.
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.
And something else you may not know…
Everything that exists in the Members’ Club is also used when working with our international clients through our Design Agency. We use those tools, databases, and resources EVERY DAY, because they work!
“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. The team 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 Apparel Entrepreneurship!”
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! “
