Tech Pack Boot Camp: How to Communicate with Your Contractor

Monday, December 14, 2020
6:00 – 7:00 p.m. MST
This event will be hosted virtually via Zoom.

Have you had a difficult time getting the perfect sample from your contractor? Does your garment have the look you designed? Does your design sample fit properly? The concepts in this workshop can also be applied to other disciplines, all departments welcome!

Product Development specialist, Darlene C Ritz, will work with you to develop the perfect technical package (tech pack) to deliver to your contractor in order to get the sample and production you want! This workshop will cover the differences between Tech Packs needed for FP (full package), CMT (cut-make-trim), and sample makers. We will cover Design Sheets, Fabric Sheets, BOMs, Detail/Construction Sheets, and Spec Sheets. We will also discuss the different types of samples (fit, sales, sew-by, and production) and when and how each sample is used.

Dr. Darlene C Ritz is a Colorado native. She has designed for companies in New York, LA, Toronto, Tokyo, and many other domestic areas. Most recently, Darlene’s work was seen at Oxford Fashion Studios during London Fashion Week (Fall 19 Season). Dr. Ritz, the creator behind DCR Studios, has been educating the next generation of fashion professionals since 2003.
