Right now, Porridge Kids is me: Katie Lukas.
I’m at the very start of this road, and I figure that along the way I’ll try to write about the kinds of things I wish I’d known ahead of time.
There are some great resources out there, certainly, but coming from outside the fashion/apparel industry, a lot of this can feel somewhat opaque. I’ve started businesses before, and I’ve worked in some seriously complicated industries and niches. I’ve even done some work with supply-chain management, albeit not in textiles or apparel. And even given those circumstances, some of this can feel a little daunting.
It came down to this: why not document this process? I know I would have loved to read the real stories of other companies getting off the ground, so I guess I might as well write one while it’s happening.
