Ladies Bag Tech Pack
Women’s Leather Chain Bag Technical / Specification Pack
I wanted to include some examples of my technical / specification packs that I would send out to the factory that I was working with on a project.
Over the years having gained more and more experience this is something that I have developed, working with different companies it is always very interesting to learn the new layouts different fashion companies want you to use to interpret the designs for the manufacturer. While some companies I have worked for only like one page with all the product information on, others prefer as many as possible really detailing all the information making the document very easy to understand and so to be sampled quickly and correctly. It is also very important to take a little longer on the technical packs as to ensure there are no mistakes and so the manufacturer only has to make one sample for the retailer/supplier as samples at this level can cost a lot of money and take some time, if it is necessary to re-sample this can move deadline/sign off dates back quite substantially, creating problems for the buying calendar.
This is one of the many, many technical packs I have done over the years as a fashion designer, and this particular one is for a UK high-street retailer, Planet. Their customer is a slightly older woman who perhaps has a little extra to spend and wants a product that is made very well with classic styling but has a certain edge to create an effortless look.
As you can see from the technical pack I have used real leather as opposed to PU, and quality hardware including YKK zips. It is important to create a product that is good quality, hard wearing as we want to encourage the consumer to return to the store and purchase again and again, this would not be achievable with sub-standard fabrics and trims.
