What Is Fashion Product Development ?
Fashion product development, or clothing product development, involves all the processes concerned in bringing a clothing product to life, from design concept to the final garment – Before final production.
Sometimes the product is a straight forward fashion garment that requires little in the way of development, beyond the basic shape, fit and style. We try to ensure that this is accomplished in one go.
Whereas an established brand can afford to make three or four samples before final approval, most of our clients, being small brands, need to get it right first time – Second time at a push.
Some more specialised types of garment may require more development, and more sampling before the final approval. These are often functional, or highly specialised garments. Sometimes they are an entirely innovative concept that may require patenting.
Pricing For Garment Development.
While it is more difficult to price for garment development, rather than normal fashion garments, we at The London Pattern Cutter, generally try to charge for these special garments in stages.
So, we may charge to make the initial basic pattern and mock up for one price. This price would include one set of reasonable alterations. We would then charge a price for the second stage. It is rare for a clothing product to go beyond three samples, but we should have an idea from the outset whether this may be the case.
We do not ask our clients to provide a tech pack, but we do try to obtain as much necessary information at the outset in order to minimise the time and costs involved for our client. We are happy to advise our clients on the best way to achieve this.
A tech pack needs to be produced by a very experienced professional, otherwise it can be a source of complication and confusion. If you need a tech pack, then we can compile one for you, using our own highly experienced tech pack designers. This way, we get the important information from our clients first hand, rather than second, or third hand through a tech pack.
One – Stop – Shop.
We specialise in helping new clothing brands by providing a one-stop-shop for all their possible needs. We can provide all the services, workshops, advice, and mentoring you could possibly need to bring your product to life.
