For todays tip, I will be going over the use of apparel blanks. Apparel blanks are great for brands who are just starting out. The reason being, is usually private label manufacturers charge a lot of money to create apparel to your custom specifications and usually the fit is hard to get right. When you use a manufacturer like Alternative Apparel they have already done most of the hard work for you. The styles, the fit, and colors are already up to date and in stlye. You can start off with a great base and print, customize the colors, buttons, zippers etc to your liking. In the fashion industry it’s looked as a faux pas to design and rebrand blanks such a Alternative Apparel, but trust me a lot of smaller brands do it. You can walk into any Kitson, Madison, and some of the other major boutiques in the Los Angeles area and pick out brands who do label switching on American Apparel and Alternative Apparel. Hope this helps. – Cut N’ Sew.
