Esther Sitali – The Fashion Wholesale Whisperer

Who is Esther Sitali?

I am an wholesale strategist for creative people.

I love to help creative people, develop the best wholesale strategy and action plan to make real money selling their products into the retailers of their choice. It is my joy to see brands I have worked with land in retailers and grow globally.

Wholesale is one of the best ways to grow and establish a brand and I can help you do that.

I do not believe we have to die for fashion! I have wondered for years how I can combine my skill set in a way that creates a better way of life for women in developing countries. Instead of having to leave fashion and retail. I am using my voice and contacts to establish wholesale channels for sustainable & ethical brands to be more visible in retailers, through my platform NYA Brands. I believe economic empowerment through the partnering of brands with artisans in the developing world is beautiful and must be championed – Trade and Not AID!. I believe that we can love the earth and its inhabitants and look great.
