In eam mucius gloriatur, his volutpat hendrerit evertitur ei. Assum audiam vituperata ad sit, ea quem principes efficiendi eam. Ferri laudem eu vis, usu an quis pertinacia, vim ea falli moderatius quis pertinacia, vim ea falli moderatius.

+ - IDEA

This is the MOST EXCITING phase of the process. You are al fired up about this new hing you want to make. Now …time to makegood. Let us get started!

+ - RESEARCH

This stage is very often overlooked in all the excitement, but it is essential to your product becoming a reality. What do I mean by research? Research can include the following:

  • Comparison of garments for construction/finishing techniques
  • Comparison shopping for saturation of the market/target demographics or need or product
  • Color/trend research
  • Target cost of garment. THIS IS THE MOT IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW.
    • You need to understand how much you want to sell the garment for, so you can then determine how much you can spend on all the components.
  • Budget: how much can you spend? Ok. Now. Add 25% to that. No, REALLY.
+ - SKETCHES

These are IMPORTANT. These are not just pretty pictures that make your idea look cool. Think of your sketches as a road map, and the person following it cannot read. Your sketches need to show stitch types, design lines, any closures — such as zippers and buttons — and any strange construction details that can be confusing.

Many factories employ people who are skilled at sewing but cannot speak English and rely on these images to clearly show what they need to do.

If you are not a skilled illustrator, either hire one or utilize photographs to show these details. Remember that research you did? TAKE PHOTOS of all the things you want to copy in your garment, then drop that photo into your sketch with a line pointing to the exact location you want it used on.

+ - TECHNICAL PACKAGE

This document is a living document: it will change as the development process goes along. This document will also serve as a contract between you and your factory. What does that mean? When you go to have your garments made, this document will outline every single detail of the garment: stitch types, fabrications, findings, number of stitches per inch, color management of fabrics, the packaging details, and so much more.

This is how you hold your factory accountable.

If your tech pack is incomplete, the factory can make decisions that negatively affect your end product and therefore your bottom line. DO NOT try to go to production without a perfect tech pack. This will protect you from owing money for mistakes that were not your own.

Do not give away your profits because you did not take the time to fully flesh out your tech pack! We will go over tech packs in a future post in a more detailed manner.

+ - FABRIC & FINDINGS SOURCING/TAG & PACKAGING DEVELOPMENT

While you are working on your samples and tech pack, you will simultaneously be sourcing all the components for the garments. Holy smokes! Feeling overwhelmed yet? Highly organized people do really well in product development, as you might suspect. Spreadsheets are your friends! If you happen to be a StartUp FASHION member, there are so many resources that will help you track all the information you need, right on the website. How wonderful, yes?!

What the heck is a component? Remember your tech pack? There is a page in there called a BOM, or Bill of Materials. This is basically a spreadsheet of every single thing you need for a garment, i.e. components. This includes:

  • Thread
  • Labels
  • Tags
  • Fabrics
  • Interfacings
  • Linings
  • Closures
  • Trims
  • Findings (all the gizmos and gadgets that are not available in yardage)
  • Packaging
  • Heat press
  • Screen printing
  • And so much more

A BOM is also a shopping list. It helps you find all the bits and bobs and can track where you find everything in case you need to reorder or follow up on an order later.

How does one find suppliers? Google is a fickle friend but can be useful. There are resources on the StartUp FASHION website, or you can attend expos such as the LA Textile Show, DG Expo, or Texworld. You can also find suppliers by going to the LA or NYC fashion districts and visiting showrooms. Showrooms can require appointments, so call ahead, and make sure you have your business license and resellers permit on hand.   

+ - PHOTOSHOOT AND MARKETING

You have photo samples in hand. You’ve approved the fit and you are ready to get creative with your marketing. Ideally, you have a strategy in place for social media, email blasts, and website launch. You have updated your inventory management software, and you are about to go into production. Now have fun taking inspiring photos and designing collateral for your marketing. Your hard work has almost paid off, do not fumble now!

+ - CUTTING PRODUCTION FABRIC

You made it through the intense production process. Fit samples looked amazing, your fabric has been delivered to the cutter, and now it is the big day when your garments get cut! You have had your final meeting with the factory, going over the details outlined in your tech pack. They have tested the sewing line and have a date for delivery to the finishers. YOU ARE SO CLOSE!

+ - DELIVERY

Your garments have been cut, sewn, finished, tagged, and bagged. They are now being delivered to the facility where they will be stored until some lucky customer buys it! YOU DID IT!

+ - PRODUCT LAUNCH

This is a big deal. Celebrate. Have a party. Trust that all your hard work will result in sales and profits, and get ready to do it all again. You are officially now a designer with a successful company.

+ - YOU CAN DO THIS

The production process is expensive, time-consuming, emotional, and risky, but with good planning and budgeting, you CAN do this. You are smart enough to figure it out, and there are many resources for self-education right at your fingertips. Just look at this website and see the absolute wealth of information available to you! Things will go wrong, as that is the nature of apparel and product development, but if you have planned well, it will not be a crisis, just a little speedbump.

Now you know the basics of the pre-production apparel process, so GET TO WORK! In future posts, I will go more into depth into these processes. If you want to connect, you can reach out at https://www.facebook.com/HannahSDesigner and I look forward to being able to answer more of your questions in the future.

+ - Are You The Cheapest?

No, we aren’t the cheapest. You may find some contrators that are cheaper. But, they usually also want larger production quantities, and more importantly, they do not provide the additional services that we do. Furthermore, we use only the highest quality linings, elastic, trims and yarn/fabrics. There are many shortcuts to producing a swimwear, and we do not use them. We want to make sure we deliver a product you’re happy with, and we can be proud of having made.

+ - How Long Does It Take To Prototype A Collection?

Prototyping sample suits usually takes anywhere between 7-21 days, depending on the time of year. Once you approve the prototype sample, it takes about 14+ days to complete production. The swimwear is packaged and shipped from Vietnam.

+ - How Do I Follow The Developing Progress?

We’ll frequentl update you by email or phone. We’ll also send pictures of the prototype on a mannequin or real body if you prefer. We will send you the prototype (at your expense) for your fial approval before we go ahead and produce pieces in the combination of sizes you request.

+ - What Patterns And Accessories Can I Use To Develop My Swimwear Designs?

As for pattern. You can choose any of the designs on our website. We can also custommade any design for you, but that may require more time. As for Solid colors, we can get almost any lid color you can think of. We also have access to accessory suppliers so if you have something specific in mind we can check if it’s available in the market. We use standard size tags for the inside of the suits, but if you want customized labels with your name those will have to be provided. Or we can source for you.

+ - What Is The Advantage Of Working With Your Company?
  1. You are able to save valuable time by going to one place instead of having to run back and forth between the pattern maker, the grader/marker, the cutter, the sewer and the printer house — We are the 1-stop shop for most people.
  2. The abilit to produce garments in smaller quantities to suit your budgets.
  3. We are able to produce many types of swimwear garments at our shop.
  4. We are flexible, easy to work with and want a lasting relationship with you. We take great pride in producing high quality swimwear.
  5. We can also help you expand by offering cover ups and sarongs to match your new collection.
