Q. Hello,We are planning to launch a clothing brand. Need more information on designs, manufacturing, and new designs for every season. Can you make designs with our brand label and manufacture?
As you said you are planning to launch a clothing brand here are the same questions that you should first figure out . Do you have your brand name ? If yes is this brand name registered ? Have you inquired if this particular name is fresh one or it has been used by somebody else ? Secondly, Regarding Information on designs , You must specify what kind of designs your brand is going to launch. Once you complete you need to prepare the Tech Sheets and then finally go for production inquiries. I would suggest you should go ahead step by step and keep enough time for you to do from one to other. Starting apparel line has several steps to follow and without this, you may lose a lot of money.
