FAQ

What Information Do I Need To Get Started?

If you have a reference sample of your garment or product, it will be easier for us to envision and work with. However, if you just have an idea, you can tell us what you would like to create and we can start with the fashion sketches and concept design. From there, we assist with product design and create technical specifications, which show how your garments and products will be produced by manufacturers e.g. material type, stitch type, trim types and so on. If you have logos or artwork, please provide them to us in ai format.

How Much Does It Cost to Start a Fashion Line?

How long is a piece of string? Let's say product development costs approximately $500-$1000 per design and the cost of production per garment ranges from $10-20. Lets say you produce 50 garments in S, M and L per design. In addition to that, factor in the cost of your website, biz administration, photography, marketing, shipping .. and you're good to go. Note, the cost of your garment will depend on many variables. Makers won’t be able to give you a proper quote unless you provide technical specifications for what you want to make. We see normal 'ranges' from $10-$20, but if you are using luxury materials, have really low or high order quantities, or have complex designs, then this will vary widely.

What Are The Payment Terms?

For product development stages from technical packs to sample making, we ask for all payment up-front before commencing the project. For production terms, that will depend on country of production and order quantity.

Where Are Your Manufacturing Locations?

We have makers and producers in Australia, Vietnam, Indonesia, China and Malaysia. If you want to meet manufacturers directly, we can also help you do that! We can connect you with suitable manufacturers and you can take the sample making and production process from there. If you want us to stay and support you through, we can also do that too.

How Do I Ensure Quality Assurance?

We can ensure your factory has the appropriate controls and quality assurance procedures in place. You can also ask one of our specialists on the ground to monitor your production run.

Are My Designs Confidential?

Design Make Produce does not share your designs outside manufacturers that we obtain quotes from.
