Emerging Designer Process


Starting your own clothing collection can leave you with more questions than answers.
We are here to show you the way!

The Evans Group (Teg) has been helping emerging fashion designers launch and scale their collections for over 18 years. In that time, we’ve worked with more than 2500 designers. Many of them were just launching their brand, just like you.

Unlike many large fashion manufacturers, we love working hand-in-hand with emerging designers from the very beginning of the process.  Our tailored approach specifically guides nascent fashion designers through the complexity of developing styles, collections, design, fabric/trim sourcing, and even mentorship.

To give you the very best head start on your collection, we have assembled experienced teams specializing in each department of patternmakers, seamstresses, designers, and fabric specialists.  Moreover, we can handle almost any category, including athletic and activewear, swimwear, lingerie, evening gowns, avant-garde, and couture creations. We are one of the few fashion houses in the US with our unique skills and capabilities.

We have the latest Gerber software and machinery, allowing our capacity and capabilities to include everything from delicate handwork to computerized grading & marking.

Your garments will be developed, sampled, and produced in our Los Angeles headquarters (where you are always welcome to visit) or our San Francisco atelier. We are proud to Make Ethically in LA.

The Process


Every Teg client relationship begins with an in-person or a remote meet-and-greet. We use this time to understand your experience, team, goals, budget, timeline, and more. We’ll also explain how Teg works, the experience of our team and the services we offer. And most importantly, how we can show you how to achieve your goals.


By taking advantage of Teg Creative Services, you can start with Strategy & Planning sessions with our Creative Services Team. From there, we’ll create mood boards, flat drawings, and line sheets for you with Design Service. With Sourcing Services, we will guide you through the fabric/trim purchase process and provide expert sourcing to find the fabrics you are looking for and manage their treatment, if needed.


This is where it gets really good. Watch your collection come to life with your dedicated Teg Team!  Our Client Service Manager will onboard you, provide you with weekly updates, and answer any questions you may have along the way. Our pattern makers are regarded as the absolute best in their craft and will draft patterns with an unmatched fit. Teg’s talented team of Sewers will finalize your designs. Together, your team will ensure your collection is developed with extreme precision and skill.


Once the development portion is completed, our Production Manager can provide you with a complete Cost Analysis report created specifically for your production. Teg Production was conceived with Emerging and High-end designers in mind, with low minimums and high-quality craftsmanship for complex styles. We promote and encourage sustainable and socially responsible practices, giving you peace of mind as you launch your brand. We are proud to offer high-end, ethical production in downtown Los Angeles.


Gain added support and expert advice on your collection and business as you begin the process of launching your clothing line at Teg. Enhance your experience with optional our one-hour, three-hour, or weekly Mentorship Programs, working alongside our Founder and Owner, Jennifer Evans. This service is designed to enhance your experience and gain knowledge in all areas of your business in particular and the fashion industry in general.
