Sample Tech Pack
Project for Production Data Management class
This project combined trend forecasting, design, and technical production. Taking the design concepts forecast for Spring/Summer 2011, I was tasked with creating two imaginary collections for different market levels: the designer line ‘Spira’, and a budget line (to be “carried in Wal-Mart”) ‘Spiral’. I was then tasked to make specification sheets for one garment from each line.
Full project available upon request.
