Ecommerce CEO - How to Start a Clothing Line

“Figure out your mission, and what it is that sets you apart from everyone else. There are enough clothing companies out there. Why should anyone buy from you? What problem are you solving? How are you making anyone’s life better?” - Shannon Ashford


“Meet Shannon Ashford, the SoCal Native Raising the Bar for Fashion Brand Transparency”


“The idea for a drop seat jumpsuit began one night out in college when my friends and I were griping about having to strip naked just to use the bathroom (because you know ladies can never pee alone). I decided then that I was going to figure out a solution.”


“I left [Haiti] feeling that my work wasn’t over and I can continue making a difference in their lives and giving them opportunities. It made me really proud of the company I started.”

National Film and Television Awards

“Tom Foolery provides bespoke and handmade clothing, with custom fitted jumpsuits to ensure that your order fits perfectly. Their garments show class and elegance, whilst at the same time are practical and are suited for your every need, whatever the occasion.”


“NEED : Tom Foolery makes beautiful yet practically-designed jumpsuits and rompers that allow you to be comfortable, look classy, and move freely all at once.”

FASHION Magazine

“The entire process takes around two seconds and is somehow even more convenient than a regular pair of pants. While a jumpsuit that’s easy to go to the bathroom in seems like it must be some sort of witchcraft, I promise you this is real life. I don’t think I can ever go back.”


“Being a designer myself, I love the cleverness of how the piece was cut. I was lucky to get two of the newest models of jumpsuits and it was a breeze putting it on. It is made as one long piece that you can wrap around you.”


“Ashford’s models ended the show with an unapologetic demonstration of the jumpsuits functionality surprising SS19 attendees with the dropseat design of each piece made for the modern dresser. Ashford’s pieces were classic, yet daring with clever cuts and features manifesting in a striking show.”


“Because I'm so inspired by entrepreneurial women who put sustainability and ethics at the forefront of their businesses, I asked Shannon a few questions.”
