How long does it take?

Every garment and every collection has a unique product development lead time and calendar.   This lead time varies based on the types of garments you want to bring to life and the number of styles, fabrics, and trims you want to use.

For this exact reason, our model is built around helping you focus on your brand’s core competencies.

Check Out this Visual Timeline.  or read the example below for a basic garment:

  • Fashion Design and Collection Ideation: 1-2 weeks
  • Sourcing: This is the development phase that varies the most from project to project , since it’s strictly linked to your requests. Based on your demands:

  • In-Warehouse Materials: 1 week + shipping
  • In-Stock Materials: 2-3 weeks + shipping
  • Custom Materials: 5-6 weeks + shipping

  • Pattern Making: 1-3 days per style
  • Sampling & Prototyping: 1-5 days per style once received the raw materials.

Once the prototypes are ready, it’s time for you to fit, test, and enjoy the creative process.  Considering any alterations, your product development is now complete and you are now one step away close to launching your new collection.
