Form and Function

Fashion is more than just garment design: materials, construction, and salability are important, too. And those last three things rely on shipping between showrooms, manufacturers, buyers--and back again--all on a tight production schedule.

Quality Assurance
You send your designs to a manufacturer. They send it back. If, upon return, that garment doesn't meet your specifications--say, the material isn't what you expected or the construction needs work--it's imperative that you have the flexibility to send it back for changes. You must have fast, reliable shipping.

And since it's simply not cost-effective to mass-produce a work in progress, your samples are few and all the more precious. You need assurance that your designs arrive in a timely fashion: it's critical that you're able to get those finished samples to the right buyers and quickly back in your hands for the next buyer.
