So I recently started a clothing brand I haven't launched it yet because I have a lot of work to do photoshoot scheduled and website to be built .. etc. Now my girlfriend keeps arguing with me stating that I'm going into a nose dive simply because there's no point of me starting a line without having a huge amount of following or exposure. I've sold a few pieces so friends and strangers before the actual launch or promotion because they saw the products contacted me and decided to purchase so I haven't done any actually promotion for the clothing.
My concern is the following should I really be worried right now ? Because she feels like I'm putting a lot of effort and money into it but I don't have a large following on social media and I should first be working on the brand (myself) in order to market my clothing. What's your opinion on this ?
