In Fashion Entrepreneurship, Democratize Manufacturing

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.

Does it seem like a daunting task to design, produce, and sell your own clothing line? We understand that.

The good news is that MakersValley can make it simple for you. How you ask? With these next three easy steps, you'll be well on your way to designing, producing, and selling your private label clothing line, made in Italy, by way of an ethical clothing supply chain.

Step 1: Making Your Clothing Designs

Have you already designed your garment or clothing line in your head? Have you turned your dream designs into patterns? Or do you have a piece that you want to modify and produce? If you have a design or multiple designs, you can send those patterns our way or pick a white label garment sample from our Be Inspired Catalog to modify. Then, fill out your project details, and send us your pattern or modified Be Inspired sample. It's literally that simple. Isn’t that awesome?

Step 2: Get to Know Your Manufacturer

Our network of Italian 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 clothing manufacturing your apparel. Having our team in Italy also puts them on site to assure the quality of the work ordered by our designers and boutiques. Isn’t that cool?!

Once you have decide to start your private label clothing line with us and you have your project completely filled out, we will put your project to bid with our network of manufacturers and artisans, screening for the bids that best fit your needs. This will help you choose the manufacturers that best fit your budget and expectations.

From there, you just pick the bid you like best, and you're off to the prototyping phase, and soon after, production!

Step 3: Selling Your Clothing Designs

Our clients have increased their profit margins. From the moment you decide to start a project with us to the time your full production order 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.
