And so Bebop Dancewear ltd
was founded in 2011 by myself and my partner. This followed voluntary redundancy from the skills and training sector and the identification of a gap in the market for well made designer dance wear.The business manufactures garments in the UK using local ‘cut, make and trim’ companies. I oversee the design and production of our designs working closely with samples machinist, pattern cutters and production managers keeping my skills fresh and relevant to today’s industry and so complimenting my skills consultancy work.The Bebop brand has grown steadily since 2011 and continues to progress. In 2014 we we intend to make a change to our client base and our marketing strategies. We will transfer from selling to the public via our online store to supplying key dance wear sites as an independent brand. This will help to focus our manufacturing processes on key styles and production techniques and give us the opportunity to promote our brand further through well established dance wear suppliers.
