Is the brainchild of Dessy Tsolova and backed by the investors behind success stories such as Astley Clarke, Notonthehighstreet.com, Orlebar Brown, Get The Gloss and Charlotte Tilbury's cosmetic venture Charlottetilbury.com to name but a few.
With over 15 years experience in the luxury fashion sector, working for designer brands both great and small from Burberry, to J&M Davidson and Smythson, Dessy's understanding of design development and manufacturing combined with the right financial backing make a compelling combination.
Utelier.com was born out of the sheer frustration of the absence of a single reliable information source for production contacts within the Fashion industry. And it is not only about contacts: often industry news and best practice articles and videos can be invaluable. The utelier.com platform is a directory, an educational resource and a marketplace combined. It helps new and established designers and retailers find other designers, manufacturers, suppliers and experts worldwide whom they can work with. In turn utelier.com brings contacts and clients to businesses whom until now heavily relied on word of mouth marketing.
As well as 'self service' via the marketplace and directory, utelier.com offers a Concierge service when needed. As a Concierge client, the Utelier team works with you to project manage product ranges from development through to production.
