Business Story

Why this business was started

After struggling to get my dress zipped up one day, I wondered why getting dressed ultimately depended on someone being available to do the zipper up. A few months later I came up with the concept for the Zipper Pull after seeing a television show about divers. They all wore wetsuits and did them up effortlessly on their own with one tug of the strap attached to their back zipper. Using the same idea as the wetsuit, an ornamental chain hooks to the zipper of a dress and is used as a pulley to effortlessly do it up. Afterwards the chain becomes a necklace. This is the perfect product to wear that is not only stylish, but also useful in eliminating struggles when getting dressed and undressed. Just unclasp from around the neck and use.

The reason of selling this business

The reason for the sale of the Ms. Dress Up brand is that I believe that I have taken it as far as I can with the resources that I have. I believe that with the right funds and resources this brand can excel to become a multi-million-dollar brand.
