POST-FITTING

Okay…so we’ve just spent the night in fitting jail (c’mon work with me here!), and F2F pulled through and posted your bail.  So what’s next?

This is when our team of designers, product developers and tech designers come together to rework, revise and issue fit comments. This process can take anywhere from a few days up to 1 ½ weeks depending on the number of styles in your collection.  It might be a simple “correct + proceed” directly into the next approval stage, or it might require a total rework.

Then, a few weeks after our comments are sent out, when the next round of fit samples come back in, we wash, rinse and repeat it all over again until we are production approved and ready to go into cutting and sewing.

FITTING

WEEOOOO! WEEOOOO! WEEOOOO!  🚨

The tech police are in town and ready to arrest any specs that are out of tolerance!

JK!! But seriously though, the whole purpose of a fitting is to try on your samples and adjust where necessary and maybe even catch any “crimes” made by the factory in the process. This is when you finally get to see your idea come to life on an actual live form. Exciting right?! We fit using professional fit models to be able to transform the sample into a functional garment, so you can be one step closer to being production ready. At this point, tech and design come together to review and ultimately revise the sample.

While the designer handles the overall aesthetic and construction of the garment, the tech designer is really the one who starts getting their hands dirty to handle fit call-outs and, not to mention, cross-checking specs and measurements before a sample is even put on a body. Fittings can be tedious, but all-in-all they require a real team effort to fit, make corrections and revise techpacks. Want to know what goes into a fitting? Scroll down to see this week’s episode!
