“The difference between style and fashion is quality”- Giorgio Armani
Quality is what truly separates the wheat from the chaff when it comes to high end fashion brands. The quality of the clothing is what gives certain brands an element of style that captivates people and generates a loyal customer base founded on trust and admiration for the brand. For those at Seagate quality is paramount. Hence the importance in visiting suppliers.
David Whitehill, Founder of Seagate Hastings, often makes the scenic journey up to the bustling streets of London in order to meet with the owners and designers of the clothing and accessories that he stocks.
Making the effort to establish strong and long lasting friendships with suppliers is becoming an increasingly rare trait of business owners in today’s world. For David, establishing digital relationships with suppliers simply isn’t enough.
Although he juggles the countless responsibilities of running a business, he will always create time for building on the friendships made with his suppliers to discuss with them their new collections and physically examine the clothing to gain an appreciation for tremendous amount of time and effort that goes into designing and crafting the clothing and accessories.
