Getting it Made
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. Buyers consistently complain that the production from British designers is not up to standard or their orders arrive late.

Is it for me?
This interactive session, part of the Design Create Sell series of workshops, is essential for any designer or fashion label that is unsure about how to go about getting their products made or are experiencing problems with their production. 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.
Delivered by fashion industry expert Alison Lewy and author of Design Create Sell - a guide to starting and running a fashion business, it 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
Understanding of 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.
