We Had An Idea.
As aspiring designers we found a common disconnect in the process of building our own collections. We conceptualize projects and dial in specifics, only to send them to the other side of the world to be produced. In the past few decades, large scale corporate business models have perfected the bottom line of garment factories. This in turn has left independent designers — who produce smaller collections — without a platform.
Where does this leave the designer?
Inevitably, designers are forced to work for large brands who have the capital investment to fund large scale production runs. Either this, or they seek private investors to fund their own line, which can be a risky proposition. This has created a dilemma for today's emerging designers. The design, development, and production processes of our industry have been fragmented. We've found a better way.
