OUR GENERAL PROCESS

BELOW OUR TEAM HAS OUTLINED THE GENERAL PROCESS THAT MOST PROJECTS FOLLOW FROM STARTING OUT UP TO PRODUCTION. Our team will take a look at your project and build the best plan for your project. 

EVERY PROJECT IS DIFFERENT AND WILL VARY. CONTACT OUR TEAM FOR MORE INFORMATION, AND WE CAN ANALYZE AND CREATE A PLAN FOR YOUR PROJECT.

 

STEP ONE: TECHNICAL DESIGN AND IDEATION


 

At this beginning stage our designers work with you to help to define your styles, understand details, and help to further enhance your design.

STEP TWO: PATTERN-MAKING AND PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT


THIS IS THE PHASE WHERE YOUR DESIGNS COME TO LIFE THROUGH THE CREATION OF YOUR PATTERNS which ESTABLISH YOUR FIT blocks, AND ENSURE AN EFFICIENT ORDER OF OPERATIONS To MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION.

PATTERN-MAKING
