& Sample Making
Prototype & Sample Making
Making a prototype or the first sample is a vital step in garment making. 3rd Floor Tailors specializes in creating soft goods prototypes and garment samples from design ideas, hand-drawn sketches, virtual prototypes, or existing garments.
Our highly skilled sample makers can create a sample that you can keep and use for sales, production, marketing, and fittings. We have expertise with a wide range of product categories which includes (but not limited to);
- Bridal wear
- Evening wear
- Prom dress
We simplify the process of having a custom design made and manufactured. We build prototypes based on your design specs, then we test and revise multiple times. Not only that, we ensure the product looks, fits, and performs as required by paying the utmost attention to every detail.
Both small and large projects are welcome as we will guide you through all the technical requirements of transforming your idea into a production-ready sample at any level of difficulty.
We create prototypes and samples for the following categories of clients.
Prototype for Production
Samples are inevitably necessary before starting bulk production.
We can make pre-production samples that reflect all details needed to produce the style. You will not only get a prototype; we’ll develop the methods in which the product will be manufactured efficiently with the best quality. We will ensure your product will surpass your customers’ expectations, and this is a sure way to keep your customers coming and referring your product to others.
Start-ups for Runway Shows
If you are a fashion start-up and need help, we do that too! We will help in creating a dress for your fashion show.
Prototyping for Private Clients
Once you have a prototype, then we can do quality and design testing and modification. At each stage of this development, we can refine the newer version of your product each time.
Samples for Photoshoots
If you need a sample to promote your style in the media like TV ads, promotional clippings, and catalogues, we got you covered. We will make the photo shoot samples according to your intended model’s body fit.
Prototype for Small Fashion Brands
All you need is just a drawing! Our professionals will discuss your idea, feasibility, sizing, fabrics, make the mock-up muslin, and fit it on your fit model.
Samples for Fashion Students
Do you have a design idea but don’t know where to start? We can help!
Our in-house professional will look at what you’re trying to achieve and make recommendations regarding construction, fabric choice, colour, and finishing.
We can use your work with physical objects and “create” them or use your drawings.
We then work with you to ensure the prototype meets your exact specifications and will fine-tune where required.
After your prototype is complete, we can make you a pattern. Attention to detail is of absolute importance to us to ensure our clients always get the expected results.
