I'm looking to start a clothing/Fashion line online only for right now. I need to know how much inventory I should be buying. I have my manufacturers in mind, I have sketches and I have money to fund the project. I just need to know how much I should be buying and how often. Can anyone help? Thank you!

    The problem with fashion is the returns due to the sizes, retailers have markups of 200-300% and companies like Zalando have 80% return rates (free shipping/returns). You need to make sure that your cost base is incredibly low, ie. production being 10-20% of final selling price so that you can have 3-5 & 7-10 returns/unsold per sale.
