9am - 10:30am: Creating a Cohesive Collection

Making a garment is one thing, but what makes a successful, cohesive collection? From coordinating and ordering fabric to choosing which pieces to feature, we’ll go over ways you can cut down on costly mistakes.

10:45am - 12:15am: Fabric Sourcing

Fabric is the first place to start and the bones of your garment. Strengthen your product as we go over the different ways you can source your fabric needs in the 21st century.

12:15 - 1pm: LUNCH

1pm - 3pm: Costing Your Product (Workshop)

The most asked questions usually revolve around the stressful task of costing your products. In this workshop, we’ll walk you through the points you won’t want to forget when putting a price on your hard work.

Sunday:

9am - 10:30am: Patternmaking Process

Patterning (and fit) can make or break your design. But how do you communicate what you need to your patternmaker? And how do you make sure you’re on the same page with your sample maker/factory?

10:45am - 12:15am: Working With Contractors

Join our panel of Industry Professionals as they go over best practices when working with factories and other contractors.
