Sue will be discussing the multi stage processes of sampling such as; sourcing fabrics and trims, how to create a fit sample, how to pass tech packs to manufacturers and much more.

Here are some of the quotes Sue has made:

“When you’ve received your sample, you now have to test and wear it. Check how it moves, how comfortable it is, and wash it, wear it again to check for shrinkage.”

“Order your fabric, trims & labels as early as possible, negotiate your prices & MOQ (minimum order quantity) “

“Placement prints & embroideries – If you are going to have a design on your garment decide where exactly it should be placed.”

“If possible, visit the factory and see how it all works. That way, they put ‘a face to the name’, when you communicate with them.”
