DO I NEED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT?

All New Garments need some Tender Love, and Product Development.

If you’re an experienced designer, you know that new clothing concepts are a dime a dozen. You know the hard work begins when you try to take that vision and sew it into reality.

If you’re a new design entrepreneur, then maybe you can relate to this: you can close your eyes and imagine you’re line so clearly, but you’re not sure how to bring it to life!

No matter what the experience level, every new fashion style is backed by great product development.

Do I have to do Product Development?

Creative Product Development is the first step!

Apparel Product Development is the process of taking an idea for a new garment and bringing it to life, evaluating each area of the garment, before sending that garment to production.

During product development, it is important to carefully execute each step of the process:

  • Sourcing of Textiles, Trims & Findings, and Raw Materials
  • Technical Design
  • Tech Pack + Flat Realization
  • Pattern Making and Grading
  • Prototyping
  • Logistics Analysisv
  • Financial Analysis and Feasibilityv
  • Production Engineering Analysis

It is extremely important to properly and patiently perform product development for a new garment. Failure to do so is the number one cause behind which most fashion brands and start-ups fail to reach efficiency.

It is also extremely important to listen to experts in each field. For example, at Urth Apparel, our designers collaborate with our Textile Engineers, Trims & Finding Specialists, Logistics Team, Master Sewers, Pattern Makers, Technical Designers, Laboratory Technicians, and each of our suppliers, in order to properly gather information that ensures the final prototype is realized correctly. once that prototype is tested and approved, we can begin production.

Keep in mind that the product development process can be the most costly phase of starting your fashion brand. Yet, it should not be overlooked! Each time a new garment is created, a new supply chain for your brand is being born.

Our team believes that tremendous care and detail should be taken at this stage, because it is the most important part of creating your brand; not to mention the most exciting and creative time of the whole process of designing fashion!

It is also extremely important to listen to experts in each field, whether they’re inside of Urth Apparel or whether they are a partner supplier.

A simple women’s little black dress may require our designers to collaborate with our Textile Engineers, Trims & Finding Specialists, Logistics Team, Master Sewers, Pattern Makers, Technical Designers, Laboratory Technicians, and each of our raw material & trim suppliers.

All of this, just to properly gather technical data that ensures the final prototype is realized correctly. Once that prototype is tested and approved, we can begin production.
