Our Apparel Development & Pre-Production Services offer a complete solution to prepare your garments for full-scale production and manufacturing. We utilize industry leading apparel development software and technologies to achieve maximum operational efficiency to meet your needs. Proper apparel pre-production and planning will significantly reduce your production and manufacturing costs, while ensuring top quality output. In this phase of our process it is important to identify each garment’s key characteristics in an effort to develop operational best-practices and understand resource requirements in order to ensure production consistency and quality.
The apparel pre-production begins with your fashion design and technical flats (also referred to as the Tech Flat). Our in-house team of designers works with your company’s individual designers or design teams to help develop successful fashion and apparel collections (typically, we require a minimum of 5 unique styles for our apparel development and pre-production services). Our process starts by interpreting your Tech Flats to create digital patterns, determining your base size, developing your size grades, and make first samples for your review and approval. Our apparel pre-production services also include fit testing and revisions to meet your specific sizing and fit requirements. During this phase of our service we also offer cost engineering expertise (evaluating fabric, trim and labor costs) to help you forecast and budget production costs. Understanding your overall per unit production costs will help you develop accurate wholesale and retail pricing strategies.
At the conclusion of the pre-production process you may elect to continue working with ARGYLEHaus for Production & Manufacturing services (minimum order quantities starting from 250 to 1,000 pieces per style). However, our pre-production services also helps you identify and secure additional factories (Domestic or International) for larger-scale production on quantities over 10,000 units per style.
Please note that all final creative and technical assets developed at ARGYLEHaus will become the property of the Client.
