Fantastic Q&A with Stuart Cosgrove at the Sub Club's temporary cultural pop-up, Sub Hub in collaboration with Kiltr.
The broadcaster, journalist and soul superfan does more than simply scratch the topcoat of Motor City history in his brand new book 'Detroit 67: The Year That Changed Soul'. Turning soul detective, Cosgrove has researched and debunked the cliched myths of Motown to unravel what really happened over one year from January to December. Although many of the book's striking images are black and white, the story is not. Spine chilling accounts from the real characters behind the scenes reveal the complexity of this pivotal time.
In its first week, 'Detroit 67: The Year That Changed Soul' has become a soul & gospel music Amazon best seller!
David's top tips for designers:
*Never prefix an email with "Dear Sir/Madam".
*Do your research and find out some info about potential buyers.
*Make sure your cash-flow can sustain the manufacture of any orders.
*Exclusivity is attractive to buyers, multiple stockists in the same city is not.
*Be aware of seasonal buying cycles and make appointments well in advance.
*Don't hard sell, give buyers time to think how your collection could fit into their store.
*Be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about your product.
*Visit art galleries!
