FACTORY PLACEMENT, SAMPLE DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT & PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT
The factory placement, sample development and management, and production placement and management process is complex and requires extensive knowledge and experience. Trying to manage it on your own could prove to be disastrous for your launch, causing major delays and wasted money. Let us put our expertise to work for you so you can get it right the first time around!
We will manage the sample development process from tech pack development to sample development and management, including the coordination of your remote fit sessions until your samples are approved in every style. We will then place your production order and manage the entire production process, including grading until your production order is complete.

We will work with you to place your line with a U.S. based factory that is emerging fashion brand friendly and has experience in your product category and who will complete your sample development and production order. We will then manage the entire sample development process, including troubleshooting and remote fit sessions, until all samples are approved. We will then place your production order and manage the production process until your order is complete and satisfactory.
Included in the Package
Our founder will tap into her existing industry insider resource database to
secure the best U.S. based factory for
your brand. This is a crucial step in the process that will save you months upon months of your precious time.
We will then provide you with a side-
by-side comparison report of two (2) potential factory options for you to choose from who work with emerging fashion brands, specialize in your product category, and can produce both small batch and large scale production orders.
It will include all the pertinent information needed to make an
intelligent decision, including pattern, muslin (if applicable), sample and production estimated costs, remote fit session cost, lead-times, minimums, and more. The report will also include our founder's recommendation.
SAMPLE DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Once your tech packs are approved, we'll
hand them off to your factory, so that your samples can be developed. Our founder
will then manage the sample development process for you, and will act as a liaison between you, our in-house director of technical design, and your chosen factory, until all samples are approved. Remote fit sessions will be conducted via video conference, so you can participate in your fittings from the comfort of your home. This process will also include the fit comments
that our Director of Technical Design will provide to your factory to request for specific revisions or for another sample to be made.
PRODUCTION PLACEMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Our founder will work with you to determine
the right amount of production units needed to align with your selling strategy. She will then place your production order with the same factory who developed your samples (there is a separate fee if you decide to place your production order with a separate factory other than the one who created your samples). She will manage your entire production order until its satisfactory completion. This includes fielding questions from the factory, ensuring
the production calendar is executed in a timely manner, communicating delays, changes, and unforeseen circumstances that may arise, resolving technical issues if they arise, educating you on the entire production process, advising you of all of the production related options before the process starts, helping to coordinate bulk yardage, trim, labels, and packaging delivery to the factory, and making a very complex process easy for you!
