A Fitting Connection was born out of a desire to help local businesses succeed in bringing their brilliant ideas to market. With over 20 years’ experience in fashion and textile design and production, founder Katrina Naish has seen the challenges small businesses face trying to get their ideas off the ground within a complex global industry. She has witnessed creative ideas flounder due to a lack of expertise, resources or contacts, and knows she has both the skills and drive to help.
A Fitting Connection as a ‘go to’ business ally for its clients, taking care of all sorts of practicalities. For every client, the support required may be different, and rather than providing a cookie-cutter approach, Katrina takes time to understand each businesses’ particular needs and develop a unique plan of action. Katrina is then supported by a team of specialists who share her problem solving mindset and are wholly motivated to help their clients achieve success.
A Fitting Connection is proud to work with many local, sustainability-focused clients. Yet there is no getting past the fact that the fashion and textiles industry remains one of the world’s greatest polluters.
While the fast-fashion problem is a global one, we believe that starting with small, local steps is how the industry will change.
We have been very excited to launch our ReFashioned label and Fundraising With Purpose campaign, both using reclaimed textile waste to produce new products. As we experiment and learn, we look forward to working on an increasingly larger scale in partnership with local fashion producers and boutiques.
