LAUNCH STEP 03: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Tech Pack Development
Technical Packages (or tech packs, as they are called in the fashion industry) are the blueprint for each of the styles in your apparel collection. It helps to clearly define all the important information to your factory when producing your samples and eventually your production order.
Our main goal with factory placement is finding a suitable factory partner who you can launch with and grow with over the years. This is one of the most important steps in the launch process to get right and we offer our valuable insider resources to you when you become a Launch Your Collection client.

TECH-PACK KICK-OFF CALL
Prior to the call, an agenda will be given to you that outlines the items that will be discussed. During this call, our Founder will explain how the tech pack development process works and what sections make up our tech packs.
You will walk our Director of Technical Design through your vision for each of the styles in your collection, and then she will discuss how to best execute them. This is an opportunity for her to get clarity on exactly how you want your styles to be executed before she kicks off the tech pack development process.
This is also a time for you to ask any questions you have. You can also request for sketched variations of different design elements that you are considering for any of your styles, (for example: sleeve, collar, or stitching options), so you can have a visual for how they will look, making it easier to decide which option to choose -- this is one of the most unique features of our tech pack development process.

Our in-house Director of Technical Design will create your tech packs, which will include the following sections: 1) Black and White flat sketches of each style; 2) Colored flat sketches of each style; 3) Bill of Materials; 4) Call out detail section; 5) Specs.
You will have the opportunity to review each section and advise your edits and changes. Once you decide how many total styles you are moving forward with, our Director of Technical Design will also grade your tech packs to your complete size scale (a separate fee applies and will be quoted prior to production step).
