Develop the best Fashion Clothing collection - Aspirado Trading UK
If you are a fashion designer, fashion start up company, a well established clothing company or a wholesale clothing company, we can help you with designing the right kind of womens clothing line or menswear clothing line or childrenswear clothing line.
These are the points you have to take care of while making your new collection whether you are selling in retail or a wholesale clothing line -
1. You should have some idea of the kind of fabric you would like to use. If you can not figure out the right fabric, we can help you with that.
Normally these are the kind of fabrics that are being used -
Cotton voile: A lightweight, semi-sheer fabric with a great drape.
Cotton lawn: Very similar to cotton voile, but slightly crisper.
Rayon challis: Smooth and lightweight, rayon challis drapes well and is slightly heavier than other lightweight fabrics, like cotton voile and cotton lawn.
Chambray: Another smooth, lightweight choice. But this one doesn't drape as well as rayon challis, cotton voile or cotton lawn.
Denim: As you probably already know, denim is a heavy-weight fabric with very little drape or stretch.
Double gauze: This unique fabric is literally two layers of gauze woven together. The double layer of fabric solves the main problem of sewing clothing from gauze (the sheerness), while retaining the good qualities (extremely light and breathable).
Knit: In the knit fabric category, you'll find several types varying from lightweight to medium weight. Knit fabric is your go-to for any garment that needs to have a great deal of stretch. Patterns are designed for either woven fabric or knit fabric, and patterns sized for knit fabric will often specify the degree of stretch needed in the fabric.
Silk: Lightweight and delicate, Silk drapes well. It has a slightly shimmery appearance. Silk can be slippery and more difficult to work with. It also makes a great lining fabric.
Satin: Satin can vary from lightweight to heavyweight, depending on the type. Like silk, it has a glossy appearance.
Linen: Medium-weight, with little elasticity (hence the wrinkles for which linen is famous!). Linen conducts heat very well, which is why it’s a popular choice for warm-weather anything.
Wool: There are over 200 different types of wool, coming from 40 different breeds of sheep, so you'll find all kinds of variety in this category of fabric. Wool is extremely hard-wearing and versatile. It’s also toasty warm.
Flannel: Flannel is a soft, lightweight fabric that works well for colder-temperature shirts, pants and jackets.
You must know what fabric will drape best in what style. Here's a bonus tip to get you start thinking -
Pants: Linen (for warmer weather), denim, flannel, and wool
Shirts and blouses: Cotton voile, rayon challis, double gauze, knit, silk, chambray, cotton lawn, linen, and flannel (for less drapey shirts and blouses)
Skirts: Cotton lawn, rayon challis, denim, knit, and linen
Dresses: Cotton voile, cotton lawn, rayon challis, double gauze, knit, silk, satin, linen, and wool (for colder weather)
