Stop spending hours trawling the internet. All the fundamental steps to developing a clothing line are right here.
” I’m just not sure what the process looks like “
This is something I hear time and time again from clients and in my Insta DMs. Before going deeper, it’s important to understand what the main steps are in the design and development process because it really isn’t easy to find a clear answer online and certainly not all in one space. And there is more to it I’m afraid than:
- Have an idea
- Sketch it out
- Find someone to make it
- Get selling
- The end
But with my 15+ years of international experience working on every aspect within fashion design, development and manufacturing, creating collections, managing teams and overseeing production for some of the biggest corporations in fashion along with over 30 indie brands and startups, I can help you navigate the industry and make sure you are on the right path.
This step by step guide goes over the main stages of the process from initial concept through to production to give you a strong starting point and an insight into what is involved.
I’ve kept it simple as this is aimed at beginners/startups/small brands wanting to scale, with a brief explanation of each stage with tips and prompts to help you on your journey.
This guide will help you gain clarity and confidence as you go through your collection development and will be your reference to know what you should be doing, when you should be doing it and enable you to research each stage further.
I hope you love it and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me
