Barriers to Entry

Our competitors will not be able to respond to this newly created place in the market very quickly. Because our idea is as unique as our clothing, competitors will have to become us to respond. Without having designers available and a system in place, it will take our competitors quite sometime to match us. Plus, contracts with existing wholesalers will make it hard for them to create a made-to-order inventory. By the time they are in our market, we will have such strong customer loyalty, that seducing our customers away will not be an issue.
