Business Coaching for Bristol-based Online Fashion Brand

I have enjoyed providing Business Coaching for another retail client - ‘Lady K Loves - an ethical vintage inspired fashion brand based in Bristol.  Kessie Hodges is the Founder and loves exploring vintage rock’n’roll fashion and empowering women, from supporting jobs in developing countries to helping them feel great about their bodies. Her aim is to ‘see people shine’ by providing flattering clothes, ethically and sustainably sourced at a reasonable price.  Kessie works with fair trade factories around the world to support women in developing countries.

We worked on refining the vision and mission for the business, developing a robust strategy for growth, with an effective Sales and Marketing strategy to increase social media engagement and sales, as well as the recruitment of new staff, and lifestyle management.  Kessie says: ‘I've really enjoyed working with Jill. Her enthusiasm coupled with her knowledge makes her an unstoppable force.’

Together we identified and assessed competitors, strengths, opportunities, threats, blockers and accelerators for growth.  It was good fun being very creative and exploring new fashion lines, as well as seasonal and topical promotions.  Kessie worked on SMART Goals to keep focused in order to improve products, adapt to the changing market and increase website traffic.  She says: ‘The support, structure, confidence and ideas Jill has encouraged me to create have helped 'level up' my business into a much more professional space.’

With the onset of lockdown and an increasing demand for online shopping, it was key to maximise exposure and engagement.  Despite the recession, Kessie is very optimistic about the new product range and is aiming for increased growth: ‘I not only feel ready for the growth we are experiencing, but I'm also excited to keep expanding & have the self-belief to be able to drive this progress.’
