You are a designer. You are a boutique owner. You are a fashion student. You have a dream... seeing your name or the name of your brand on the tag of a piece you designed and selling it. How many times have you thought about it? Does it intimidate you because it seems like a daunting task to design, produce and sell your designs? We understand that, when boutiques and designers come to us they expect the production process to be one filled with scary price structures, many strategic planning variables such as locations, timing and order sizes. The good news is that here at MakersValley, we make it simple for you. We are here to help you achieve your dream, by connecting you with good quality and affordable manufacturers who can manage any minimum size order and we also manage the relationships with the our italian artisans and manufacturers. Ok, you like what you’re reading, but you are probably asking yourself ‘What do I have to do?’ with these three easy steps you will be well on your way to start designing, producing and selling your private label.
Step 1: Making It!
It’s awesome that you have a dream of making your own clothing line or unique piece, of apparel! We have to put that dream into action! Have you already designed your piece or line? Made it into a pattern? Or do you have a piece that you want to modify and produce? If you have a design or multiple designs, make them into a pattern. You can send those patterns our way and we can start making samples for you with your desired fabrics. If you have a piece you want to modify, send us that piece with the specifications of what you want to modify and we will send that sample your way. It is literally that simple. Isn’t that awesome?!
Step 2: Knowing Your Manufacturers
Now, Step 2, the really fun part! Getting to know our manufacturers. Our manufacturers are a big part of our community and we strive to maintain great relationships with them. We have a team in Italy dedicated to maintaining existing relationships while creating new ones. In this way, we assure the fair trade and making of the apparel ordered. Having our team in Italy also enables them to assure the quality of the work ordered by our designers and boutiques. Isn’t that cool?!
Once you have decided to start your private label with us and you have your patterns. We will give you a list of the manufacturers and artisans that best fit your needs with their price breakdowns. This will help you choose the manufacturers that best fit your budget and expectations.
Step 3: Selling It!
Our clients have had a raise of 150% on their profit margins. From the moment you decide to start a project with us to the time your full production is made and shipped it takes an average of three to six months. During this time you will revise prototypes and have time to market and create an awesome sales plan to launch your new private label and here at MarkersValley, we are proud that we helped you make this happen.
