Unfortunately sounds like you're going about the wrong way. A brand first approach is usually just a logo, a soul less product with no identity. It doesn't resonate with people, and thus dies an unknown.
Just saying. "starting a brand" is not the right approach, ever.

I like this thread. I've been looking at starting a brand too
@BullsFTW: I disagree. You can have a brand without designing the products. You just need to project the image. Look at Nike or Disney.Team "Torque" TRQ

I knew a kid who started his own sort of clothing brand in high school. Really all he did was come up with a brand logo and some designs and had them printed out on basic t-shirts and sweatshirts. Thanks to his popularity, marketing the brand was easy. For one of the big football games he designed the shirt that everybody decided to wear, and made a couple thousand dollars selling them to students and even parents and teachers.
Starting my own clothing brand is definitely on my to do list in life. Even if I just make clothes for myself, I think it would be pretty cool to wear something you can call your own.

We actually own a clothing manufacturing company and we work together with some of the big brands here in Europe. Anybody can start a brand but that is just the beginning; 99% of people heavily underestimate the amount of work it takes to establish a brand, not to mention the network and funding you'll need to generate enough traction. You'll need to have the demographic covered, brand experience, the product itself, sales, marketing & pr, manufacturing, logistics, customer service etc.
I would recommend to think twice before jumping into anything unless you have an idea that is very 'niche' and really fills a gap in the current market or if you have a shitload of cash and a great network including good sales people (with established contacts in the business, otherwise youre dead in the water)
I hope this helps a bit, if you like to know anything feel free to send me a PM (been lurking for a couple of weeks now so I thought to make my first post a good one haha)
