That's awesome! you've already taken the first step toward making your dream a reality.

I would advice adding some tangible metrics to your goal.

For example I would rephrase the goal in the following way:
I will have my clothing brand and modeling business on the right track by:
- Gaining xxxx Instagram followers by xx/xx/xx date
- Having xx site visits daily
- Selling merchandise at xxxxx store by xx/xx/xx date

Making your goal more specific allows you to gauge yourself. Understand how far you've gotten and what else still needs to get done.

Good luck!

Congratulations! As we know that 99% of startups will fail, only 1% can survive and become stronger. So we need to validate everything step by step.
Step 1: Setup "Value Proposition". It means that choose the detailed value you want to deliver to your customer. The customer doesn't care about your product/cloth, he/she cares about himself/herself. Ensure you can provide the values to the customer or you can solve customer's problems.
Step 2: After "Value Propostion" confirmed, find the related customer segments. Even if it is a big product, it can't serve for everyone on the earth. Actually the big product was also growing from small product. So find multiple customer segements for your value proposition.
Step 3: List all the scenarios (including time, place) that each customer segement may encounter the problems
Step 4: List all the elements of each problem, all of them are hypothesis, use quantitative or qualitative questions to describe the problem. For example: the traffic from home to office is horrible, the elements for this problem could be: How long time the person could take from home to office? What is the transporation tool the person take? Which city does the person live? etc.
Step 5: For these questions to validate the hypothesis, design the interview questions, and then go out of the building, interview your customers directly. For each customer segment, 10 people could be a reasonable number for you to validate the hypothesis.
Finally you will get the high value feedback from your interviews.
One book is recommended to read: "The Lean Startup"
Good luck to you!

Congratulations. That is a very ambitious goal, but there are plenty of success stories. Figure out your style.. carve out a niche or unmet need to differentiate yourself. Be creative, but also focus attention on developing your craft. Develop alliances with partners equally interested in your vision.

Get in front of a camera. Get behind the camera. Learn from others and ask lots of questions. Be willing to start small, at the bottom. Respect the art.
