All work is contracted through me, Courtney Cady. I can refer any suppliers, vendors, or contractors needed by the client, my network is extensive. These contacts are yours to work with at the discretion of the participating parties, even after contractual work with Shallow Fashion is terminated. Any existing relationships established by the client can remain. The way we work together is up to you.

ARE YOU READY?

I am very selective with who I work with, if you would like to work together, please ensure you are clear on what roles you want me to play in your business so we can make a clear agreement.


CHECKLIST

Before you reach out to work together, please make sure you have the following:

  1. Resale Certificate

    This is a wholesale license required to purchase fabrics and work with factories

  2. Tax ID Number

    If you plan to import any fabrics, a Tax ID number is required. Plus for tax purposes your business needs one, so you might as well set it up before you start anything else.

  3. Shipping account

    Either a Fedex or UPS account with a usable payment method attached. We use this to ship your raw materials where they need to go, as well as send samples and other goods.
