Business of Fashion: Production Basics

Fashion Designer Studio

Communicating your garments in a clear and concise manner can keep your production process flowing smoothly. In this session, we'll go over the necessary parts of your "tech pack" and what information needs to be on them.

Taking Measurments

There's no one "Universal" size chart, which fortunately lets you tailor your garments to your market's needs. In this session, learn how to decide on your size chart, and what that means for fitting.

Design Samples

What fabric is going to work best for a jacket? wool coating or a ponte knit? Will it need interfacing? What's a jobber? In this session, we'll talk about troubleshooting your materials needs and where to go when shopping for your fabric.

Browsing Clothes
