    Ive been wanting to start retailing designer clothing for a while and have struggled to find a dropshipper or supplier online and was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for a wholesaler or dropshipper for name brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton , Moncler , Stone island etc . Would be a great help thank you.

    You can’t find them because those brands don’t supply dropshippers.

    If you want to sell Gucci you need to contact them directly.

    I see alot of instagram clothing pages and even new stores on the high street which supply these brands so would that mean all of these pages and stores will have contacted gucci directly . I do believe there must be a way to wholesale or
    Dropship elsewhere as these brands require a certain portfolio before allowing you to distribute their brand and these small instagram pages i am sure so not hold that portfolio when they first start up however i could
    Be wrong i just find it hard to believe that small businesses fit the portfolio required by these major name brands.

    Some may be buying fakes.

    Some may indeed be buying the actual items, from wholesalers.
    Not into the particular brands so not aware which wholesale warehouses stock them.

    The brand will be able to tell you who their UK wholesale stockists are. Quite likely the places selling one brand sell others.

    Are you sure these Instagrammers aren't just affiliates and sending you to an online retailer selling Gucci products.

    What do you mean? The instagram pages have around 50k following also they have their own websites is what i mean so they are directing me to their own page.

    Contact the manufacturers and they will provide a list of wholesalers and suppliers. You then negotiate to be allowed to sell their products.

    And on those websites, can you buy these brands directly?

    By directly do you mean directly from the website?

    Yes. The ones I looked at were affiliates or had some sort of advertising thing. None of them were stockists.
