- Design/Production Calendar $15 – Thinking about starting a line but not sure where to begin? Our Design/Production will help you design with organization and time-management. The calendar provides a timeline for each process including when to start sourcing fabric, begin design development, sampling, production, etc! As you develop your collection, this calendar will have you market ready every season.
This calendar is specific to the Women’s Apparel market so if you are doing children’s, men’s, or accessories, your calendar may look a little different. However once you have the selling dates for those markets you can work backwards to create your own calendar. Also this calendar only includes the 2 main seasons, Spring and Fall. As a new designer you will want to start with this, as doing all 6 seasons would be nearly impossible.
- Buying/Sales Calendar $15 – In order to succeed in wholesale sales, you MUST be aware of the seasonal selling, delivery windows, and shipping dates in order to work effectively with buyers. This calendar will help you stay on track so you never miss a season! You DO NOT want to ship late to your stores especially on your first order! Plus it will bring you one step closer to entering the US fashion market.
It’s important to know all 6 seasons here as some seasons do overlap and can extend longer depending on the item you are selling. This will be useful when you are quoting delivery dates and cancel dates to buyers. When combined with the Production calendar, it will also help you to know when your cut off date for taking orders should be.
We’ve also included the exact Delivery dates for each season as well as some information on the Childrens, Mens, and Accessory markets.
