My company is seeking step-by-step information on the life cycle of clothing, from design to when it gets put on the shelf for sale. We would like the information to be as detailed as possible, so any of you out there with knowledge on this subject please pass the information along, it is greatly appreciated. Book titles and magazine articles are welcomed as well. Thank you!
Kathleen Fasanella's book "The Entrepreneur's Guide to Sewn Product Manufacturing" is a great source of information on the processes and timetables for apparel manufacturing. You can also check out her website for more great info. http://fashion-incubator.com/
Thank you for the input, we'll check it out, and we greatly appreciate it!
hmm nice you if you want any kind of help just ask me with out any hazitation.. i`ll be glat to help..
There is also another great book out there called "Over-dressed The shockingly high cost of fast fashion". It does not so much describe the life cycle but I think it is a supplement to Kathleen Fasanella's book listed below with updated information. Also Clothier Design Source (my company) offers a 4 step simple layout to understand the entire process from beginning to end. This 1 minute video below pretty much sums it up too. Please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org as we offer free consults should you need more information. thanks and best of luck!
Dave - you may want to check the Fashiondex book selections. I have a list on Apparel Search at the fashiondex book store page.
