Good grading builds your fashion brand and reputation. Win more sales with perfect grading from a leading London clothing supplier.
Grading is the process of creating a range of different sizes for your garments. It is far more than simply making the same pattern in a variety of measurements.
Through grading, we take your pattern, test it and create a garment range designed to fit your customers perfectly. Good grading is vital in building trust in your brand.
Grading is a collaborative process for us, beginning with sampling. Once we’ve developed your sample, we’ll move to grading and test your design to different sizes. We’ll amend and tweak as much as we need to get it right, combining your ideas with our technical knowledge and experience.
We usually carry out grading once you are happy with the style and the fit. We can check patterns before grading and tech pack creation if required, please, enquire about charges.
Grading is the final stage in the manufacturing process. Once it’s done, we can stitch your garments and have them ready for sale, whether on your boutique rail or online store.
We can help you develop your company grading rules and size charts.
Your customers will, naturally, expect consistency of fit across your brand, and so your company grading rules should reflect your market and your ambitions. Each customer base is different and your grading rules will need to match the customers you want.
Getting grading right can be a significant contributor to gaining more sales and growing your reputation and your business.
