Who is LOFO
We are a London-based unisex trans-seasonal clothing company. Our clothing is manufactured in our workshop in East London. We handle all product-cycle operations, from sourcing to garment manufacturing to online sales.
The founders of the company, Ana & Steph, and a young team of driven professionals are here to show you (almost) all the tricks they’ve learned over the years.
How this course is different
Our approach to fashion is different from most traditional brands. The School of Product is also different in that respect.
Most brands don’t produce in-house or outside the fashion seasons. You will be offered an overview of common practices related to outsourced manufacturing and selling through buyers but that is not the core of the course.
You will instead get your hands dirty and learn about how to make and market garments that you can sell directly to customers.
Why are we starting the School
At LOFO we’re constantly improving on the way clothing is made and presented. That’s what allows us to produce in London. We believe in the ethos of making your own things. Under your own rules.
Starting out in fashion has been a complex journey. It was filled with lots of pitfalls and things we got wrong. Overcoming those things led us to where we are. We learned a lot along the way. Our team and process grew stronger.
Of course, learning about those things earlier would have proven invaluable. It would have saved us a lot of time and material resources.
The fashion landscape is shifting very fast at the moment. There are many things that were true a couple of years ago that are now being invalidated.
There is no one true way of building a fashion company. But there is a mindset that you can set yourself up for to be able to handle all the challenges that will come at you.
Working with people eager to know how we do things and how the team works are a couple of our deepest desires.
