FAQ 

Below, you will find answers to our most frequently asked questions. If you have any further questions that are not listed here, you can contact us here, or you can fill out our contact form here.

Do I need to have prior fashion design experience in order to launch my apparel collection?


Absolutely not! In fact, none of our clients to date have had any prior fashion design experience or have a fashion background of any sort. We bring our expertise to you and guide you every step of the way, so no experience needed!




Will I be required to travel to the factory during the sample development process?


No. Using our advanced technologies, you can launch your apparel brand from the comfort of your home! If you prefer to make visits, we can arrange that for you and in most cases, it can be accommodated.




Can I launch any type of apparel line with you?


Yes! We can launch your layette, childrenswear, teen, women's, men's, mommy and me, and daddy and me apparel lines within every product category. We also launch women's scarf and men's pocket square and tie accessory lines.




Are you a consultancy and a factory?


No we are only an apparel launch consultancy. We partner with U.S. based factories who are emerging fashion brand friendly for all of your sample development and production needs (both small-batch and large scale production).




Do you offer logo and website packages?


Yes we do! We have two different custom logo design packages and a custom e-commerce website design package. We also offer custom email signature and business card design.




Do I really need a business plan?


Yes. Every business start-up should invest in a business plan. We provide an economically priced business plan questionnaire style template that walks you through the process of creating a business plan, with each section of the plan already in place, along with instructions for how to fill out each section, making creating a business plan fun and easy, for the reasonable price of $97. You can learn more about our business plan template by clicking here.




Do you work with international clients?


Yes we do. We have worked with clients who are internationally based, but please keep in mind that we only work with U.S. based vendors and sample makers, so you will incur international FedEx charges in order to review fabric swatches and samples and to receive your finalized production order.




Do you work with overseas vendors and factories or only those that are based in the United States?


We work exclusively with fabric vendors, trim suppliers, sample makers, factories, and other resources that are based in the United States. While some of your fabrics may be imported by the U.S. based fabric vendor, you will have a MADE IN THE USA apparel collection if you work with us to launch your apparel collection. We have found that we can find reasonably priced manufacturers in the U.S., while avoiding the time delay of overseas shipping, as well as customs, tariffs, and import taxes.




Do I need to know how to sketch or illustrate in order to launch a clothing line?


No, you do not need to be able to sketch or illustrate in order to launch your clothing line. For your design concepts, you will usually draw out a rough pencil sketch of each of your styles and then add inspirational images that show the type of garment you are seeking. Then you'll add your thought out design elements to it to make it your own.




I need help putting my design concepts together to form my apparel collection. Can you help me with that?


Yes! We offer design services in which our Director of Technical Design will work one-on-one with you to craft your designs in order to form a cohesive collection. To learn more about what is included in our design services package, please inquire with our founder during your complimentary phone consult.
