Empowering a Fashion Retailer’s Growth with Business Financing

An independent boutique curating designer clothes and accessories from renowned labels operated two bustling stores and an international e-commerce site. With a loyal customer base, the company imported and sold top international designers’ collections, earning an enviable reputation for showcasing exquisite fashion lines. Supporting their growth, multifi’s business finance was a perfect solution for the fashion retailer to move to the next level of their growth.

The retailer had established itself as a successful and fast-growing company, competing well in the market. The owner’s unwavering commitment to perfection played a significant role in achieving this success.

In the fashion industry, speed to market is crucial. It is essential to have the latest season’s designer fashion lines available shortly after their launch. However, buying stock in advance of sales creates working capital pressure with traditional finance solutions like invoice finance not appropriate for retailers. They approached multifi as the business finance solution was ideal for fashion retailers.

multifi offered the business £100k revolving credit to address these challenges. This credit limit helped reduce their cashflow challenges and alleviate supply chain pressure. The retailer uses this credit to pay suppliers in the UK and multi-currency payments globally, providing an additional 120 days to settle stock payments.

This simple finance solution improved three key areas:

  1. Increased Efficiency:
    The retailer could place larger orders by accessing the revolving credit facility, optimising their purchasing process and increasing overall efficiency.
  2. Managed Seasonal Demand:
    Spreading out invoicing allowed the retailer to navigate the peaks and troughs of seasonal demand. They could adjust their payment schedules to align with sales patterns effectively.
  3. Faster Response to Trends:
    With improved cashflow, the retailer could stock essential items early in the season, responding swiftly to industry trends. This capability is vital for sustaining the retailers’ impressive growth trajectory.
