I was looking for info and googled myself to this gr8 site.
I actually intend to start a clothing line for Mens Dress Shirts, Trousers and Suits with another line dedicated to T-shirts and Jeans.
I actually have to say the truth, im intending "copying" a great designer whom iv fallen in love with his designs but is not popular in my target markets. I definetely will do tiny modifications where need be, but the basics will be based on his designs.
Pls I need all the advice I can get, as I`m considering China as the manuf base. Things that come to my mind after weeks of research include:
1. China agent (are they called aggregators ?) to oversee (maybe) everything
2. Good quality dress manufaturers
3. Maths of costing and budgeting
4. Shipping info, etc
As I learn more, I will ask more questions on this thread, and hopefully, experienced people can assist.
Before working with a clothing factory overseas, you need to check for their legitimate, asking them for references, and if you just want to order a small run of your own private label clothes then a clothing factory that accepts paypal is preferable.
