Like the first signs of spring, Tender Shoots, a vibrant yellow-green, is invigorating, active and cheerful, while Grayed Jade, a subtle, hushed green with a gray undertone, brings about a mood of quiet reflection and repose.

    Sophisticated Emerald, a lively, radiant green, inspires insight and clarity enhancing our sense of well-being. From one extreme to other, combining all three greens presents an intriguing choice much like Mother Nature intended.

    Exotic African Violet is statement color that brings touch of intrigue to the palette, as purples often do, and can be incorporated into many unexpected combinations. Try pairing it with exuberant Poppy Red, a seductive, sensual and celebratory shade. Whether it’s a knockout dress or a kiss on the lips, every woman’s wardrobe and beauty essentials should include this spirited, true red. Nectarine, a bright, effervescent citrus orange with coral undertones, provides a tangy burst of flavor while cheerful Lemon Zest brings out a piquant taste with its refreshing, spiritedly greenish cast.

    Signifying the time when everything starts to wind down, Dusk Blue offers calming sense of serenity akin to its green counterpart, Grayed Jade. Both colors act as season’s newest neutrals. For an unexpected mix, pair Dusk Blue with the intensity of Nectarine. A warm neutral, Linen is light and airy, providing a nude-like basic that is a must have for spring. Try pairing Linen with Grayed Jade or Dusk Blue. Anchoring Monaco Blue is a classic shade that offers both stability and depth to the entire palette. Combine Monaco Blue with Poppy Red and Linen, or Monaco Blue and Emerald for a fresh collegiate look.

    Steps in Tech Pack Design

    Tech Pack Design Steps and Procedure

    Designers and Clothing Brand wonder why Tech Sheet is Required and What Goes in a Tech Pack. The Post gives a Clear Picture of  Steps Involved in Technical Design or Tech Pack Design. Tech Pack has several components and it is style dependent Tech Pack is a set of instruction for Garment Manufacturer to follow and prepare garment sample and Apparel Production. So while preparing Tech Sheet, Technical Designer must mention garment construction details very carefully. Following detail goes within tech pack.

    What Dose the Tech Pack include?

    1. Fashion Flat Sketch – Flat Sketch is Front, Back and Side view of the Garment Style.Technical designer must give importance to create fashion flats as this is base and is main interface of apparel spec packages and further makes base for tech pack and sample development, pre-production and Garments Production.

    2. Color Combo – Colorways for a particular style. Garment Style can be produced in different colors and accordingly Graphics, Embroidery of  style have matching colors as per base color of the style. As per style requirement the color combos are prepared. Usually color combo for any particular style ranges from 2 to 4 different color ways.

    3. Fabric Details – Composition of Fabric and its Yarn Counts, Construction, Weight and G.S.M. Also Fabric Consumption. This information is required to get the estimated fabric consumption for the production of the garments and determines the optimized quantity that can be produced on certain fabric price rate.

    3. Stitching and Garment Construction Detailing - Shows how Garment Style to be stitched and its construction procedure. Technical designer with factory experience who understands stitching technique and garment construction details can transform this in tech packs.

    4. Graphic or Print Details - Garment Print detailing with pantone color code with Screen Separation details are represented on Graphic and Print Details of the Tech Pack. This also contains Print Techniques, Chemical to use and avoid, Print Size and placement etc. Cost for Prints is usually calculated on its size, color and complexity. Usually for prints - Every color is distinguished and while preparing the print screen every color makes out a separate screen. So the graphic design in t-shirts or any garment style should be quite clear and vectors are separable to make the print screen.

    5. Graphic or Print Placement Details - This is also a very important part of the Tech Pack Designing. Designing a print is not sufficient. Where the print should be placed , its feasibility and complexity of placing the print is an art as well as very tedious. A Good print placed in wrong place makes the total style a disaster.

    6. Embroidery Details - Mostly Embroidery details is given similar to the print details except the type of embroidery that differs . Just like Puff Embroidery , Plain Embroidery etc . This is a complete clients preference and creative directors thought that leads to the outcome. The embroidery is always counted in the number of stitch that is being done for a particular embroidery design.

    7. Trim Detailing - Although Trims are always part of Apparel Branding However, Detailing of the Trims are always crucial for any style. Which Trim to be used in which style is very crucial and most brands use this detailing very effectively to make the garment attractive and also look expensive. Usually for established brands the trims always prepared. But Even though the established brand also change their trims time to time to give fresh look and feel of their collection. For New Brands Trims Design is a must and they should begin with the trims design and then move on to the style designs.

    8. Washing Details : Every Garment weather it is Knitted , Woven or Denim has certain processing and that comes in terms of Garment Washing. Specifically when it comes to denim the washing details comes out to be quite important. There are many types of wash depending on the type of garment that is being sampled or produced.

    9. Measurement Details and Size Chart  - This is The Most crucial part of any Tech Pack Design. Any Tech Pack that you make without the Measurement Details or Measurement Spec Sheet is vague or trivial. Moreover the Measurement Spec Sheet has to be 100% accurate. However, To Achieve the 100% accuracy there needs to be a lot of Trial and Error process which goes. Because measurements always differs from person to person. The Solution is: The Brand should at least collect the Standards of the Measurement which then used to prepare the detailed Measurement Spec Sheet. The Client has to provide the Model Measurement or the Standard Measurement and this has to be provided with utmost care.

    10. Graphical Representation of Measurements - This is also very important part of the Tech Pack Design and Specifying the Measurements Graphically. This is most crucial for the Factories to follow. Usually the Factories while following the spec sheet find it difficult to understand from the spec sheet because of the Trans language gap or lack of understanding. So if this is provided with a Graphical indication would help the Factories to make out what needs to be done and how to measure what.

    11. Bills of Materials ( BOM ) : The last step in Tech Pack Design Process is preparing the Bills of Materials. Bills of Materials BOM is the check list of all items and process to be used in preparing the Garment in the Factory. This helps in Processing the Garment during Mass production and also helps in Getting the right amount of consumption and thereby help doing the actual costing of the garment.

    The value of an Apparel Technical design project is not just dependent on the amount of work that a Apparel Technical Designer or a Fashion Studio  has to put into it. It is also dependent on the value that the design and techpack will bring to the client's brand or your Clothing Line Sheet.
