The COMPLETE Guide to Clothing Development and Manufacturing Process

You’ve got a great idea for a brand, but don’t know where to begin? This guide takes some of the guesswork out of the process, leaving you free to concentrate on your dreams!

Jumping into your project without a clear understanding of the development and production process can lead to lots of frustration. Not to mention, some very expensive lessons learned. In this guide, we’ll discuss a variety of subjects, from how to identify the appropriate manufacturing partner for your brand to illuminating the road to your ultimate goal: bulk production. 

If you’re reading this, we assume you’re a fashion designer with visions of creating your own line! And we also assume you might find the process quite daunting.

How do we know this? Well, for over 17 years, we’ve worked with thousands of designers just like you. We know how overwhelmed you feel. But don’t worry, just as we’ve done for many before you, we are here to help!

At TEG, we get a lot of questions about the process of clothing production for fashion designers from how long it takes to go from just an idea to a finished product, to what the journey actually looks like.

This guide will help you understand the process, pointing out the important steps involved; including the most important step of all: Having the right outlook.

There are a few important things to remember before you venture down the road to a successful clothing brand. First, any who has achieved anything great started just where you are right now bogged down with more questions than answers.

Doing your homework is the next important step (research, preparation, and so forth)…and completing them in order is equally crucial.

But perhaps the most important thing to remember as you embark on your

journey is probably best summed up with an age-old tale that reads more like ajoke.
