Tech Pack Design - Working with New Clothing Line

Garment Pri-Production Life cycle

Weather you are looking for team sportswear,knit sweater,lingerie tech pack design,men's underwear line or basic sports clothing design you need Illustrator and Spec Technician goes hand by hand.Defining garments styles which offer an enticing combination of proportion, balance, line, shape, value, colorways and texture.It's important to make sure that tech packs reflect every detail and show front and back views of the design, stitch detailing , trims detailing along with enlarged views of specific detail, prints with color details and separated vectors, embroidery details if it is there and most importantly measurement spec-sheets with all size gradations.

Garment Tech Pack Design is quite a Complex Process.Recently I have came across some of new clients of New Clothing Lines which put some questions which motivated me to write this post and which would be a Extension of The Tech Pack Design Process.The Question is "Do you think you can work with limited info given to you for preparing a Tech Pack ?".Technical Designers perform multi dimensional responsibilities while preparing and reviewing of tech packs for complete and accurate information.They should understand sewing construction and translate into the tech packs and also measurement detailing grading and measurement.measurement. Technical Designer has to foresee the style detailing to the actual garment even before the actual technical flats are prepared and then sketch technical drawings.


Creative Client would like to convey his/her creative design thoughts but gives a vague idea or picture.Capturing The Vision Step by step makes the process quite easier and a good Technical Designer should capture the thought of the Line Owner/Creative Designers thought in stages.During the process there is a great amount of mails exchange,Communication is required.The More you talk to the client or creative designer the more clarity you will get on the style and ultimately it becomes easier to get the idea of the style and Tech Pack.

Line Sheet Designers looking out to get the costing and pricing only with the rough sketches. In this case both the vendor and the Line Sheet designer puts themselves in trouble for the simple reason if you get a quote some how and due to the market fluctuation the rates varies either of the parties may be loosing.There can never be a win win situation for any of them. So proper documentation and Tech Packs are required to get the quote and production process.
