How Does The Evans Group Help New Fashion Designers Start A Clothing Line?
It can be intimidating to launch your own fashion brand. There's a ton of work that needs to go into it, not to mention costly mistakes people make when starting a clothing line.
Jennifer Evans and her team aim to eliminate all the stress of the design process and guide new designers into a lucrative career.
Here's a quick view of the clothing line design process for curious fashion entrepreneurs.
The Clothing Line Design Process
Before the master pattern makers and seamstresses get to work manufacturing a clothing line, the fashion designer meets with the TEG team. This is where all the planning and discussion take place.
This is where things like nailing down goals and targets for your own clothing line, along with in-depth brainstorming sessions to get the most out of your business plan occur. These invaluable ways of hashing out clothing details can happen face-to-face or remotely. Either way, this is precisely where Jennifer Evans and her team start to build a good rapport with the burgeoning fashion designer.
Clothing Line Designing and Sourcing
The time has come to actually start designing the samples that will define your own clothing line.
The design team develops TEG specification sheets with all the pertinent info: the look and feel of the clothes, the measurements, and sample sizes.
But don't worry: the clothing designer is still heavily involved. TEG offers a talented creative services team that uses mood boards, sketching sessions, and in-depth discussions to consider every course of action and put any questions to rest.
Developing The Clothing Line
This is where the TEG team, made up of the best veteran textile workers, seamstresses, and Los Angeles pattern makers starts working on bringing your clothing line to life.
The project manager sets timelines, stays in constant contact with the designer to answer any questions, and goes over possible changes or creative directions.
The Production of Your Own Clothing Line
Now that all the creative planning and initial design steps are out of the way, the production manager guides the team to finishing your clothing line.
Clothing Line Costing and Prices
After the order is complete, the production manager contacts the clothing designer for pricing and costs.
For first-time clothing line designers, a great idea for an initial design package is the 'Test Drive.' This is ideal for those looking for low minimums and high-quality craftsmanship at a reasonable price.
