Is it too risky to bulk buy product from Aliexpress for my first e-com business?

I'm setting up a fashion e-commerce brand/biz. I've been working with a manufacturer and have a series of custom designs, because of this I can't buy small amounts to test the market.

I'll likely need to bulk buy around 700-1000 pieces. The pros of this is that the designs are custom and shipping will be quick. But am I being overambitious?

Reading other people's experiences it seems that most with start with dropshipping from Aliexpress or buying small numbers if non-custom designs to test the market.

I'm at the point where I need to decide which way to head so any advice would be appreciated.
