Designer Dreams Retreat March 2019

‘Designer Dreams‘

Retreat in Bali

5 nights from 11th-15th March 2019


Have you been dreaming about a clothing range you want to make? Perhaps you are a stockist for other brands and have so many ideas to start your own. Maybe you are a mum who knows what looks good. Come to Bali to find out how to start your own label. 


Your hosts for the tour will be Amber from ‘Your Island Itinerary’ and Kaylea who designs for Melatiku. Amber has been finding families their perfect villa in Bali for many years now and has also hosted several tours in the past. Kaylea designs for the brand Melatiku and coordinates the Melatiku Production Agency, which is run by her partner. They have made local connections with suppliers and artisans making producing here an easy option. During the tour you can ask anything you want about starting your own label. 


This Bali tour is perfect for Mums who want to find out more about designing their own clothing or soft furnishings label. Most Mums start thinking about this as a way to still provide an income for the family whilst building up a business around their children’s needs. During your time here we will show you the process of getting your dream collection out there for everyone to love and buy. 


You will be taken to see suppliers and chat about fabrics, pricing, embellishments etc...Bali has so much to offer designers and mumpreneurs. When not sourcing fabrics you will be grazing and relaxing in a gorgeous villa or out in one of Bali’s amazing restaurants,  attending a workshop, connecting with likeminded ladies, and making your designer dreams come to life.
