Happy Thanksgiving, fashion Makers, movers, and shakers! This month we’re thankful for you, and for the amazing experience we had earlier this month at the 2017 WebSummit, in Lisbon, Portugal.
Demo Day, the culmination of Parallel 18's five-month startup acceleration program, the end of a journey and the beginning of a new one. The day that 30 startups, including MakersValley, from Puerto Rico, USA, Europe and Latin America all came together and had the opportunity to showcase their companies to international investors. No pressure, right!?
The most important component of a garment is the fabric. It doesn't matter how well crafted the seams of the garment are – if it the clothing is made from the wrong fabric, it will not do justice to the design and will look like a disaster.

Whenever someone thinks of fashion design, the first thing that comes to mind is glamour and sparkle. In reality, there’s more to it than that.
Over the last couple of months, MakersValley has been working in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Our company was selected for Parallel 18, the island’s most innovative startup accelerator program. Even though our time here is coming to an end, we can’t forget that they've taught us to #WorkHardPlayTropical.
At MakersValley, our team is like a family. We want you to get to know the artisans responsible for creating your fashion line. In this blog post, we're going to introduce you to Carmine.
Carmine is the owner of a manufacturing company that makes mens and womens fashion clothing. With a lot of dedication, he was able to grow his business from a small studio to a successful clothing manufacturing company.
You are a fashion designer. You are a boutique owner. You are a fashion student. You have a dream... seeing your name or the name of your brand on the tag of a piece of clothing that you designed.

The good news is that MakersValley can make it simple for you. With these three easy steps, you'll be well on your way to designing, producing, and selling your private label clothing line, made in Italy, by way of an ethical clothing supply chain.
What are the odds of making it in the fashion industry in the US? What are the odds when you're originally being from Kenya? If you thought impossible, think again, because Ishmael did!
He embarked on a journey to the United States to play basketball and ended up becoming a fashion entrepreneur. He created the MUDAXpro reversible athletic outerwear jacket which will soon be featured on Kickstarter and Shark Tank. Talk about a success story!
