Date and time:  1 November 2021   πŸ• 8PM GMT/UTC

Location and Duration: Online / approx.  60 min

Event Description:  "Does a manufacturer really need a tech pack?", we are often asked. I've seen many designers putting lots of effort into creating one just to realise later that the manufacturer didn't follow instructions on the tech pack. I will take you behind the scenes, once again. I will show you how tech packs are used in my fashion studio and what mistakes designers need to avoid making sure it's utilised by manufacturers. To make it truly interactive, we will hold this masterclass in our studio. I will take you on a journey, together with our studio manager. We will recreate a tech pack "journey" from a desktop screen to the final quality control. After this training you will have a concrete idea of what needs to be included in a tech pack to support your manufacturer during the production process.

Having studied Fashion Buying & Merchandising at UAL's London College of Fashion, my course lacked some of the design knowledge I needed to help develop my aspiring brand. Tech packs were one of the grey areas for me so I wanted to learn more and how to do them correctly!

Great overview and insight into what is required from a Tech Pack, especially from the perspective of a manufacturer, so it has been extremely useful! The templates available were also a helpful tool to practically learn.

As someone not from design beackground, I'm not aware of all the technical terms that were used during the training.

Nearly talked myself out of joining as my youngest was playing up but so glad I made it. Brilliant course, starting to understand why manufacturers have been a little off with me :-)

This was a very informative session and thanks for answering my question on UK vs offshore sampling/production for startups.
