Our Signature 5-Step Launch Process

 

STEP 01 / PLANNING

First, you'll complete your business plan, using our easy-to-fill out business plan template made specifically for emerging fashion brands. Then, using our Selling Strategy Guide, you will determine your preliminary selling strategy.

STEP 02 / BRANDING

Next, you'll identify your target market, craft a comprehensive branding strategy, including your Unique Selling Proposition (USP), Brand Positioning Statement (BPS), Brand Mantra, brand narrative, tagline, and every single branding component necessary to create a solid brand identity (including website copy).

 

Then, our in-house Brand Stylist will work with you to create your brand and logo design and your branded social media graphics for posts, and our founder and CEO will design your e-commerce website. You can also opt for the Starter Package, if you don't wish to have a logo and website designed for you. You can also get additional marketing collateral, including business cards, a professionally branded email signature, and notecards.

STEP 03 / PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

From there, we'll work together to place your design concepts  using our remote white board tool and make sure they are cohesively merchandised. You can also work with us to create your designs from the ground up. Ou founder will then source your fabrics, using our Insider Guide, you will source your trim, we'll give you costing training and you'll cost your line or get it costed for you, and you will work alongside our Director of Technical Design to get your tech packs (the blueprint for how your garments are constructed) made, approved, and completed.

STEP 04 / SAMPLE DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION

We will work alongside you to place your line with a U.S. based apparel manufacturer, who will make both your samples and produce your bulk order.

 

Then we will hand off your tech packs to your factory and manage the sample development process for you, including the coordination of your remote fit sessions, until final approval.

 

Lastly, we'll place your production order, walk you through the grading process, and manage the entire production process for you, including all the complex details until completed.

STEP 05 / SALES, PROMOTION, AND MARKETING

In our final launch step, we will work with you to develop your wholesale and dropshipping business through our online wholesale marketplace (if wholesale is a part of your selling strategy), help you land press with our Media Leads service, assign you an account manager who will work alongside you to grow your Instagram account, design your lookbook, help you get Fashion Week show placement, and much more.
