So you have a great idea for a product you want to develop, but you’re not exactly sure where to start.
You feel a bit intimated by the apparel development process and unsure about whether or not your idea is good enough to make it in the competitive fashion industry.
You want to collaborate with an experienced designer who can guide you in the right direction, and help get all of your ideas down on paper.
You want to make sure that you have all of the materials you need so that you can spend your time and money wisely, and develop high quality apparel the first time around.
In a dream world, you'd also want to work with a one stop shop that can help you build a solid strategy for your apparel brand, develop high quality apparel, and then give you the tools and resources you need to sell your products.
If this sounds like you, then you’re in the right place.
All you need is the
We'll start by reviewing any notes, inspiration images, and or rough sketches that you have for the apparel you want to develop.
No need to have your notes or inspiration organized into any specific format or mood board. We just like to see some initial direction and then our team will help get all of your ideas down on paper.
2. Fashion Design
Next our team will expand upon your initial ideas and create 1 -2 flat design options per style for you to review.
Once you review the design options, you'll provide your initial feedback and our team will make any sketch adjustments as needed.
After we've perfected your collection, we'll discuss the best fabrics, colors and trims that will bring your apparel designs to life.
Lastly we'll create a professional design line sheet, that will include all of your final flat sketches, colors, fabric information as well as style names and style numbers so that you can start presenting your collection to buyers.
3. Tech Pack
Once your designs have been finalized, we will create a tech pack for each design / style, to explain the specific design details, construction information, materials, label placements, and most importantly, we'll perfect the measurements for each design to explain exactly how each item is going to fit.
Our tech packs are a 9-10 page document, similar to a blue print, that explain exactly how to construct your first apparel sample. Once your tech packs are complete, we'll send your tech packs to the best manufacturer for your product, to develop your first physical sample.
Our tech packs include the following:
1. Front and Back Technical Sketch
2. Construction Details
3. Fabric and Material Bill of Materials (including fabrics, trims, labels, colors, etc).
4. Colorway Variations
5. Specific Design Reference Images
6. Point Of Measure Diagram
7. Measurements & Specifications for up to 5 sizes (graded)
8. Brand label, Care label, & Hang Tag details & direction
9. Factory Notes Section
4. Fabric & Manufacturing
Once your designs, line sheets and tech packs are finalized, we will source the best fabric mill and manufacturing partner off your designs and tech packs to our top recommended manufacturing partners who will start developing your patterns and physical samples for your collection.
We've spent years developing strong relationships with sought after manufacturing contacts who have developed for well known brands within the industry. These manufacturers don't just work with anyone, but with our connections, we'll be able to get you set up with the best in the industry so that sampling your apparel is a breeze.
After your first sample has been completed, our team will teach you exactly what to do when you get your sample back. We'll teach you how to review it, fit it and provide notes to the manufacturer for any revisions needed for the next round of samples.
It typically takes most people 1 - 3 rounds of samples, before giving the final approval to move forward with production.
After you've approved your final samples, we'll teach you everything you need to know in order to get you set up and prepared for production.
We'll teach you how to finalize the last details for each of your apparel design including final fabrics, trims, colors, label and logo placements, sizing, as well as final packaging.
7. Marking & Sales
Once your production is underway and you have your final samples, we'll connect you with our recommended partners to help you bring your apparel marketing and sales to live through photoshoots, web development, whole sale orders, FB ads, etc.

Maggie & Grace, TX
"Our experience working with ApparelKit has been absolutely incredible from start to finish. We were able to launch a full apparel collection in just four months working with their team.
They took all of our inspiration, our mood board, and the kind of the feel and the colors that we wanted and turned it into incredible physical products. We worked with them from the very beginning on.
Creating original design conceptions through tech packs. And they even introduced us to suppliers and the factories that we're currently working with. We were really intimidated to launch into apparel just because it's such a big industry and there's, so many, concepts and words and things that you have to know and get right, and they were just really very holding our hands, walking us through the, through the process, really being an incredible mediator, and we're excited to to keep working with them on all future collections and into the next year!"
