Discover how to source and manage your production effectively

One of the biggest problems designers face is how to source and work effectively with their manufacturers, whether they are managing production in the UK or offshore.

Is it for me?

This interactive session, part of the Design Create Sell series of workshops, is essential for any designer/maker or SME  that is planning to outsource their production or is experiencing problems with their manufacturing. It will give you an understanding of sampling, production and quality control procedures, and the systems you need to have in place in order to avoid expensive mistakes.

The session will cover the following:

  • The production process
  • Sourcing and selecting manufacturers
  • UK Vs offshore production
  • Production and critical path management
  • Managing quality control
  • The necessary documentation including, production dockets, costing sheets, size and design specifications
  • The sealed sample process
  • Costing your products.

By the end of the session you will have the confidence to communicate effectively with your suppliers and manage your production effectively.

Each participant will also be given the Fashion Angel Production Pack – essential templates and measuring guides that you can use for your own sampling/production.

Delivered by fashion industry expert Alison Lewy, Fashion Angel founder and author of Design Create Sell - a guide to starting and running a fashion business.
