Behind the Seams

How we get the perfect fit for all.
Before any garment is fit on a model it goes through a review with the design team, co-founder Jay Rosenberg, and Vice President of Design, Diane Manley. Once everyone signs off on the garment, it is fit on our size-8 fit model, Pat.
The team once again looks at the technical fit (is everything followings the specifications and measurements?) as well as the aesthetics. They decide what they like or don’t like about the piece, and then the best way to move forward (maybe add a different finish or treatment?).
This is all done on the first prototype, made in NYC in the design studio. Once approved, it is sent with the pattern and specifications sheet to the factory for the sample fit.
