LAUNCH STEP 03: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Our founder and CEO will personally provide you with the fabric sourcing service using her 19 years of experience working in the New York fashion industry, with a specialty in global fabric sourcing and R&D. At Ralph Lauren Corporation, she was the Fabric Archives Manager, a position created by Ralph himself. She was the Fabric & Trim Manager at J. Mendel, and the Fabric Director for the 2007 Sean John fashion show at New York Fashion Week.
 
We are connected to the most reliable and trustworthy fabric vendors and mills, who are both emerging fashion brand-friendly and offer lower minimums, so you will never have to spend countless hours trying to locate and secure them. When you work with us for your fabric sourcing needs, you will also gain access to our insider resources, including the same fabric mills used by the top names in fashion, including Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and Tommy Hilfiger.

Once we get all the important details we need to source your materials, our founder will tap into her insider resources to source you the best fabrics in the market!
There are many technical and complex factors that need to be taken into account during the fabric sourcing process -- let us put our expertise to work for you so you get it right the first time around.
 
She will provide you with a comprehensive and in-depth fabric sourcing report with options covering not only the fabrics you asked for, but often times, additional fabric options showcasing the latest and most advanced technologies.
