Fashion is not for Sissies.  – Michael Kors

Truer words have never been spoken. The glitz and glam of runway shows may look like fun and games, but fashion should be a business first.  Once you’ve defined your customer, outlined your marketing strategy, and chalked out your financial plan, then we can talk design.

Ready to create?

At JLD-Studios we start with a garment sketch, or two or three.  Whether you come to our studio or we speak over the phone, this is a tangible way to flush out the details and better communicate your idea.  As the sketch develops we’ll start to add construction notes and drawings to further explain the garment.

Apparel Design

This quickly develops into a technical package. Once we have this initial blueprint of your garment we are better equipped to source fabrics, make patterns, and finally prototype the design.  All these components coming together is the breadth of fashion design.  Then we rinse and repeat until the style matches your vision and your customer’s needs.
