We want to make a sample collection of new swimwear and silk blend coverups for Summer 2015.
We want to make the following:
3 one piece swimsuits
3 bikini styles
3 cover ups, silk/poly blend, open robe styles
We will buy the fabric in the garment district here in NYC and will then draft patterns. From those patterns we will make the first samples. These are the prototypes we will then approve, or work on again until fully correct. We use these samples then to represent the next collection.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Usually the issues we tend to deal with are production issues. For example, a sample turns out wrong, the sizing isn't correct, doesn't fit properly, or is sewn wrong. Sample making can be a crap shoot. You have to do the best you can to make them as accurate as possible to save money and time making corrections.
