Hello everyone!!! Please I need your help!
Lately, we have embarked on a project trying to match designers with the tailors they desperately need to move their businesses forward. However, the general question I get from designers are:
“How much should I pay?!
Naturally my first question is “how much can you afford?” but to be honest that does not really help much because sometimes, we have no clue what we can afford and need help knowing where to even begin the negotiations.
So! Seeing I am totally clueless on what the answer should be or what the industry average is, I have decided to embark on a survey in order to ascertain the going rates for tailors. We know these rates will vary according to location, specialty (menswear, womenswear, bridals, etc), competence and of course if you are paying via salary or commission but we need these details to help us move forward.
So please please please, spare of a few minutes of your time by either clicking on the link or filling the form below. All we need are the amounts and how you pay. If you pay per item, please specify the rates for these items as well.
All answers are confidential and the results will be published here when we get enough information and I am sure we will all be interested in the results.
I truly and sincerely appreciate your time!
To everyone who has already started responding to me via Blackberry and WhatsApp, thank you so very much! I really appreciate this.
