SFD013: The Step by Step Production Process for Fashion Design Entrepreneurs

July 31, 2017


In this episode I’m chatting with Abbie Ellis, co-founder of Stitch Method – a Chicago fashion agency that helps you DEFINE your market, DEVELOP your product and DELIVER it to your customers. In the interview, she walks through a step by step overview of the production process, how to work backwards from costing and budgeting to design, and why a tech pack is essential for every product, no matter how simple or where you’re manufacturing.

You will learn:

      • How long it takes to go from idea to production (hint: it’s longer than you think!)
      • How much you should budget to get your design into production
      • How to know whether you should manufacture overseas or locally
      • A step by step walk through of the production process from start to finish
      • Why your factory is one of your most valuable resources
      • How to work backwards from costing and budgeting to design
      • The value of thinking bigger picture and creating long term goals
