Welcome to Intimate Apparel Samples!
Intimate Apparel Samples turns your fashion entrepreneur dreams into a reality.
We offer an all-inclusive service, from mentoring new and established brands, through to providing design, development and production services for small to medium intimate apparel, swimwear and athleisure businesses including start-ups.
Working closely with the client, we turn your initial design concepts into reality.
Our fully equipped studio is based in Brent Cross, London where we work with both local and overseas businesses. Our specialism includes under-wired bras, swimwear, mens underwear, lounge-wear, athleisure and corsetry. We can provide you the full service or offer individual services.
An initial meeting held at the London studio or via Video to discuss the brands objectives, end customer specifics and how we will work together.
DESIGN AND FABRIC SOURCING
Intimate Apparel Samples evolves the clients initial design concepts into a technically viable design package which acts as a blueprint, guiding our specialist technicians and production facilities throughout the creation process.
We have built strong relations with local and overseas fabric and component suppliers which we are happy to share with our clients, along with guidance of which materials and trims are best suited for their designs.
Once the design and brand measurements have been established the first patterns are created. These are developed either manually or digitally and hard copies of the final patterns can be produced.
Measurement Specs accompany all our patterns to ensure the products are made to spec.
An initial prototype is created, often in cheaper fabrics of the same weight and stretch. This is an important process to check fit and shape.
Fit assessments will be carried out on a live model that closely relates to your customer profile. Fittings will take place at the studio, preferably with the client present unless otherwise arranged. Detailed measurements will be taken of the model at each assessment and fit, comfort and aesthetics will be analyzed
DEVELOP & REFINE
A good fit is essential for attracting loyal customers therefore pattern alterations, additional toiles and more fittings are often needed to perfect style and purpose.
Samples in the final fabrics are constructed once the pattern and toiles have been approved.
Duplicate samples can be requested.
We create digital grade nests using either our standard grade rules or those supplied by the client.
These will be accompanied with graded measurement specs and also Layplans if requested.
We specialise in both core and plus sized bras.
Once the samples are approved and the full tech pack is complete it is time to move onto production.
Manufacturing is carried out in-house at our London atelier by our all female team, within an ethical work enviroment.
We offered tiered pricing for production and do not have any MOQ’s.
