NJAL+ is a tailor-cut premium service customized to meet the needs of our designer community and includes the relaunch of the online store, access to crucial deals, insight and education tools, and so much more. It’s an unprecedented program that NJAL designers can join with a low monthly fee; one born from a decade’s worth of experience and industry insight. We know our community and we know the industry at hand—NJAL+ is a program meant to empower and enable growth from our collective experience and connection.
The NJAL+ program boasts a new and improved version of The Shop that makes each designer's profile shoppable by connecting the inventory of personal online stores to the NJAL platform. NJAL+ members will be able to join an aggregated online storefront that empowers the purchasing process—no commission fees, no middle men. All designers have to do is join NJAL+ and link their online shop to their NJAL profile. It’s that simple! With a click of a mouse, NJAL visitors from across the globe will be able to browse designs and purchase pieces directly from designers.
With years embedded in the industry, we understand how competitive the landscape is, which is why The Shop has zero commission or referral fees. The launch of NJAL+ will make Not Just A Label the largest collective marketplace in luxury fashion and an undeniable shopping destination where emerging brands are situated at the very center of it all. This is the future of consumerism in fashion; one that focuses on connecting, facilitating, supporting, and inspiring both designers and consumers throughout the entire process.
In addition to The Shop, NJAL+ also boasts a custom tool-kit that is designed to save designers money at every level of their business. The robust tool-kit includes a vast array of exclusive deals on valuable services and products essential for businesses; including sales and marketing tools, exclusive discounts, unique access to trade shows, and so much more.
Whether it’s discounted tech products, hotels, shipping rates, or specialized educational opportunities, NJAL+ customized tool-kit is meant to empower, educate, and open up new avenues of growth for brands. Ranging from educational webinars to digital wholesaling tools, as well as exclusive third-party services from NJAL’s client roster, designers will be part of a curated club that represents the future of fashion. If a designer is thinking about opening a store, we can offer discounts and partnerships with service providers who look forward to working with those within our designer community.
NJAL understand the costs associated with running a business, and shipping costs often top the list of expenditures. For that reason, we leveraged the negotiating power of NJAL’s 35,000+ designers to secure everyday savings on shipping—from both UPS and DHL.
Are you based outside of the EU or US? Rest assured that international designers can create accounts with both partners, and NJAL+ will expand its offering in further international markets in the months to come. Showcasing and direct-to-consumer retailing are a crucial part of a growing business and we know that the investment is considerable. As an advocate for designers, NJAL+ has partnered with the world’s leading trade shows and retail partners to secure exclusive savings to maximize ROI.
Designers are globetrotters, traveling constantly for work (and play). To save money wherever a designer's busy life may lead, NJAL+ has partnered with The NoMad Hotels, The Standard Hotels, Avis, and Budget (plus more to come!) to provide discounted rates to provide an added level of freedom to take businesses to the world stage.
Being a member of NJAL+ means designers are a part of a powerful contingent. As enrollment grows, our ability to negotiate new and better deals on their behalf will grow. We are a community built upon the strength that comes when designers work together; supporting one another to create a new industry standard. From one black sheep to the next, NJAL+ is the encapsulation of an ethos rooted in the empowerment of the design community.
For a limited time only, we are offering the first 1,000 designers an introductory rate of just $49/month with a 12-month commitment. The monthly fee immediately grants members access to the entire line-up of discounts and perks, as well as the ability to join The Shop. NJAL will also invest a percentage of monthly membership fees to place digital marketing and run focused campaigns to attract additional consumer traffic to designers; we are working with the best agencies around the globe to amplify the combined power that comes with designers working together.
It’s simple to apply and the savings potential is limitless: in addition to the sales coming from NJAL+, our members have access to over $10,000 in potential annual savings through our brand partnerships. We’re thrilled to bring this new program to the NJAL community, and we can’t wait to show the entire industry all that’s to come.
