Concept to Apparel Production

Support from Concept to Prototypes and Production.

It is not always easy to present sample to showcase your creative ideas with investors. But you need to showcase to keep your business running. And for this you must showcase your product ideas to whole sellers, stores and investors. Needless to say developing sample for every creative idea is difficult and costly. Moreover, garment units refuse to develop sample without a firm production order. It becomes difficult for a start-up apparel brand to build their line-sheet. They have limited funds, no investment partners, and quite a few source to develop sample. In this case, the only way to showcase product idea is a line-sheet presentation.  You can showcase to book pre-order for your apparel collection. This you can do by presenting your line-sheet with all necessary details. This way client can relate to your idea and visualize your idea about the collection. Of course, this is not the ideal way to showcase your collection but you can start with it with people you know. To prepare you must take the help of a tech pack designer so that you can prepare for the queries of your clients.
