We recommend watching the lessons, below, in the order shown. Start by watching our 3-Part Fashion Start-up 101 series (“The Fundamentals”, “Designing, Merchandising & Costing a Collection” and “Promotion, Marketing & Producing a Collection”. Next, learn how to draw flats from our “Female Flats Croquis”, “T-Shirt Flat Drawing” and “Jean Pant Flat Drawing” lessons. After flats, get to work learning “How-To Spec a Leather Jacket”. Finally, master our “Leather Jacket Tech Pack” lesson. If you sell your designs as finished goods, “tech packs” (a/k/a/ “spec sheets”) summarize your design’s details on paper in numbers and images to make sure the rest of your team (especially your off-shore manufacturer) makes exactly what you had in mind. After you understand tech packs, check out the other titles in this discipline. Enjoy!
