How I became a wardrobe consultant, by Anne ATS
UK-based Nigerian fashion entrepreneur and boutique owner Anne Namgbeh explained how she became a wardrobe consultant, dealing with wardrobe advice for clients.
Nangbeh, also known as Anne ATS, said she became a wardrobe consultant out of necessity. As a wardrobe consultant, she helps clients make the right choice of clothes that match their personality.
âAccording to Anne WTS,â I help clients organize their wardrobes and update them with the latest seasonal wardrobe collections, analyzing the appropriate colors, fits and designs for outfits, including jewelry. I also select outfits for photo shoots, fashion shows and social events for my clients â.
Speaking in a recent interview, Anne ATS said: âI am a brand influencer and have worked with reputable companies such as Fashionnova, BoomBod, Diva Boutique, VIP Chauffeur Car Hire, Femmeluxe and CQ Beauty.
âI am also an affiliate reseller of Dogebay, UK which is a platform for users to buy and sell products using only Dogecoin (just like eBay except you can buy with dogecoins) . If you are a business owner and want to use this platform, you can register at dogebay.co.uk and use the code Anne ATS, âsaid Anne Namgbeh.
Anne ATS recalled how difficult it was for her to quit her job and go full time in her own business.
âIt was difficult for me to fully embark on the business, but she, I am happy today that this difficult decision has helped me. As an entrepreneur, one of my most difficult decisions has been was quitting my job. It is difficult to quit a job because first you have to think about how you are going to tell your boss that you are quitting. Quitting was especially difficult for me because I loved my job and that this work paid my bills.
âAlso, I didn’t know what challenges awaited me, but I believed in my dream and it kind of made it easier for me. I knew that in order to be successful I had to make sacrifices, if not a lot, and quitting my job was one of the sacrifices I had to make, âadded Anne ATS.
After quitting her job and starting the business, Anne ATS said funding has now become a big hurdle for her.
According to her, âFunding the business was another difficult process as we didn’t make a profit for the first six months. Getting my products to market wasn’t that difficult because at the time there wasn’t a lot of social media, so I targeted universities and malls. I would go to universities and malls to hand out my business cards and then get referrals from there.
On how she was able to overcome most of the challenges she faced at the start of the business, Anne ATS said: âThere will always be challenges, but I won’t let them get to me. Instead, I think of strategies to get around it. To stay afloat I make sure I keep producing quality products with not that high price tags and I also do promotions very often.
