Answers to the most frequently asked questions from aspiring designers

Be A Designer is a independent style office. We are a team of professionals who can help you realise your idea in fashion. We can help you from the conception stage right through to the production and marketing of your idea.

We are located in Gallarate in the Province of Varese just a few minutes from Milan Malpensa airport and less than an hour's drive from Milan / Como / Lugano / Bergamo 

We work with both structured companies or professionals and VAT-registered businesses as well as private individuals. Obviously if your idea is to create something of your own and start selling it sooner or later you will need a VAT number, but if you want to get started there is no problem!

We offer both operational services where we do the work for you such as pattern making, prototyping, textile printing, graphic realisation of concepts and collections as well as strategic consultancy services.

Don't worry! We advise you to book a free call with a member of our team who will be able to guide and advise you best! 

If you are shy or prefer to learn more, we suggest you read our book: "Do you also want to be a designer?" which encapsulates our entire method.

We have an agile structure built up over almost ten years and we can handle all kinds of production for you from a few items per model to thousands. Of course, what changes is the price.

We have a tested method divided into several steps where we will start from the idea through to the prototype and then production. At every stage you will be at the centre of the creative process and you will always know what is going on!

We have been doing this job for almost ten years, we are the only style office in Italy focused on emerging designers and start-up projects.

Why are we the only one? Because making fashion small in Italy is very difficult especially for beginners who do not have the right network of contacts.

We have developed a METHOD to build your products and your brand with precise price and market logic that combines the right creativity with the right product.

Do you also want to be a designer but don't know where to start?

I wrote a best-selling manual which guides you through our method to start thinking about your fashion brand in the right way, avoid costly mistakes and give you the right priorities.

If you don't know where to start, this is the best way to begin!
