Learn how to launch a sustainable swimwear brand

Factory45 connects swimwear entrepreneurs with ethical suppliers and production partners to help bring their vision to life!

Thinking about launching a sustainable swimwear brand?

Breaking into the swimwear industry as a new designer can be intimidating.

You face unique design challenges that some other fashion brands don’t have to consider:

  • Understanding what makes swimwear fabric eco-friendly.
  • Sourcing soft, durable, water-resistant, and UV-protective fabric.
  • Finding an ethical manufacturer that specializes in swimwear.

New designers often find themselves stuck when they don’t know where to look, how to reach out to suppliers, or what questions they should ask. The good news? This is why Factory45 exists.

Factory45 provides sustainable swimwear designers with the contacts, education, and marketing training to launch their brands successfully from scratch.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Launching your sustainable swimwear line through Factory45 ensures things are done the right way from the start.

An online portal with modules for manufacturing, marketing, and launching your swimwear line

Databases of vetted industry contacts who can transform your design sketches into the final product

Proven launch strategies to raise money for production without risking your savings

I’m Shannon, the founder of Factory45 — the online business school for fashion entrepreneurs.

Over the past 8+ years, I’ve worked with hundreds of sustainable fashion entrepreneurs to take them from idea to launch.

From swimwear to couture (and everything in between), new designers come with an idea and are equipped to launch a sustainable fashion brand in the most cost-efficient way possible.

With lifetime access, you’ll always be able to get support from myself and our all-star mentorship team.

Are you ready to join the growing list of swimwear designers out to transform the industry?

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Factory45 provides the tools, strategies, and support needed to launch your sustainable swimwear brand.

“Factory45 was the best step I could have taken while navigating early entrepreneurship. Shannon has designed a clear and concise program that takes the guesswork out of so many would-be time and money-consuming aspects of starting a business.”

BLAKELY WICKSTROM
Founder of Galamaar

“After Factory45, I was able to launch a successful Kickstarter campaign that exceeded our goal of $30,000, and go into production for our first collection.”

CATHERINE HUSS
Founder of Siena and Co.

“Factory45 also gave me a complete understanding of the manufacturing process and, most importantly, an actionable plan on how to bring my collection to life. Equipped with email templates, key questions and general timelines, I was able to confidently prospect potential manufacturing partners.”
