I'm interested in setting up a business of importing and online sales of some kinds of designer accessories but I have no idea. There is the legal aspect, warehousing, shipping etc. I'd like as much of it to be delegated as possible to make it alpha 2. Where can I find more info on this?

You're describing dropshipping or affiliate marketing. Neither of which lend themselves to delegation unless you make it generic and then you compromise your income ceiling.

For affiliate marketing, you'll build a platform and sell directly via email and use marketing channels to build your list and make consistent sales. I'm testing this method with an IG approach that I have.

As for dropshipping, there are plenty who already do this and teach.

I prefer Kyle Trouble who has done it, but recommends it as a means to an end and not a direct means for wealth creation. Here's his course: https://gettrouble.com/p/pro-niche-site/

I also prefer Ridge Market built by CJ Johnson associated with Kyle. This is the main company he started, which imports and sells watches. You can buy a ready built company like you're mentioning or learn to DIY from them. They're led by a veteran Chris (I think he's 20-something). He's the only one I know who's made a full-living off dropshipping because he leverages demand and profit margins, which is the only way to get the most out of this experience. Since you dig the designer, affluent sphere, this may suit you best.

You have to be all-in whatever route you go though. If you're not, and looking to delegate, you won't get the most out of this because it's hands-on and again a means to an end. Not the means itself.

That's all I know.

Look into Amazon FBA. I don't even touch the product and I sell while I sleep. I also sell my own branded T-shirst but for that, you need to create an online audience with blogging, podcast or a youtube channel. I did it with a youtube channel.
Used alibaba to source the goods, branded the product etc. I can give you more tips if you're interested.
My amazon store is about 20% of my income at the moment.
