We're a full-package clothing manufacturer deeply committed to building successful fashion brands.
What sets us apart?
Clothier Design Source offers a service that can eliminate the first cut and sew steps with virtual prototyping. More than a drawing, virtual rendering uses your digital pattern files to simulate fabric drape and fit of a sewn garment.
We work with your concept and turn it into a production friendly design. This is a collaborative process with you (the brand owner) and our designers to make sure we capture your vision. Your Design Manager will be your point of contact throughout the entire process.

AT CLOTHIER DESIGN SOURCE, YOU'LL GET EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO START YOUR FASHION LINE
Starting a clothing line is not easy as any one who has done so will tell you. It’s an archaic industry with fragmented workers who are happy to take your money and never deliver. Why don’t they deliver? Well despite many having good intentions, they are only 1 small part of a long process of developing a collection. When developing new products it’s imperative that all parties talk to each other. Think about any great companies that make products. They have to all work together and constantly solve problems. We realized that tens of thousands of aspiring fashion entrepreneurs like you had amazing ideas but no technical expertise to build products that you envisioned. We created our development program to simplify this process and pair you with industry experts that all work under one roof. Now, let’s review the process together:
01. DEVELOPMENT KICKOFF MEETING
First, we collect any reference samples you may have and your development cheatsheet. Then you and your Design Manager will help set up financial targets, material and fit details and provide a project quote.
02. SOURCING MATERIALS
Your Design Manager works with local vendors to source high quality materials and ensure we hit your quality and target price points. All information we source from our vendors is passed on to you for 100% transparency.
03. PATTERN MAKING
Our expert pattern makers engineer the features and fit of each style using the latest digital apparel pattern making software. Patterns are the blueprint from which all clothing is made from. Don’t worry you get to keep your patterns and they can be used by any factory in the world.
04. SAMPLE MAKING
Our Sample Makers hand cut and sew your garments with expert detail. Samples are made to test fit and functionality.
Here you’ll have a fitting with our team and identify alterations for your next round of samples. While our competitors average 5 revisions, we average 1 to 2.
06. PRODUCTION TRANSITION
With your sample approved, we are ready to begin pre-production. Place your purchase order to begin your first production run!
