I have a large interest in clothing and I always want to learn more. This is something that I haven't read anywhere and I think that it would be very interesting to see what people here have to say, as I know that you can find alot of people here who works in the industry, and therefore have "real" answers. As my topic says, I wonder about the process from idea to finished garment in the customers hands, what steps there are, difficulties, how different companies work (everything from huge-quantity brands like H&M compared to top-of-the-line brands like Thom Browne/whatever) Some things I'm especially interested in knowing is how brands work with pricing and markups. For instance, how do resellers work with markups, do they differ or is there a codex in the branch that says a certain amount is often used etc? How do it differ between different brands? How do brands (designers) find fabrics and tailors to make the garments the way they want? I guess this is a struggle every new brand have. Differences between high/low-priced brands in production? Right now im starting to get tired, so I can't come up with any more ideas. I would hope that this thread would grow, with the purpose that we could discuss the industry and share our thoughts.
