Where brands come to be born.
We’re your fashion start-up bestie & we’re here to guide you through every step of the process.
What sets the Casual Brand Creative apart from other design studios or manufacturers? For starters, we’re not a crusty old agency with antiquated concepts and ideas about how you should build your fashion line. We take a modern, hands-on approach to partnering with you to ensure a strong relationship is built so that we deliver quality product that will speak to your brand ethos.
We offer general consulting services in half-hour blocks to answer any and all questions relating to the design, development, and production aspect of building a fashion line. Already an established brand and looking to make some changes? We can help there, too. We only offer virtual consults at this time.
Design & Concepting
Have design ideas but can’t get them down on paper? Have NO IDEA where to start but know you want to build your own line? We’ve got you. We utilize very popular trend forecasting services to ensure we deliver the most up-to date and trend-forward design advice related to your product category. Mood boards are our favorite, so ask us about those!
This is normally part of the design process, but we are here if you just need help with your sketching (bar napkins don’t hold up very long).
You’ll need fabrics, trims, and other findings in order to build your product. Luckily for you, we have strong relationships with wholesale fabric and trim vendors that can accommodate small (and large) order requirements.
Every manufacturer will require you have a tech pack in order for them to make your clothing. A tech pack is a pattern-maker, sample-maker, and sewer’s Bible used to understand how to build your garment from start to finish.
Patterning & Sampling
Once you have your tech pack and materials (fabrics, trims, etc), we can draft a paper pattern to then create a sample of your garment.
We offer both virtual and in-person fit sessions to help correct any pattern changes that need to be made to your garment. Have a sample that’s just not fitting right and aren’t sure how to communicate the necessary changes to the pattern-maker? Give us a call. We do not provide fit models.
Whether you started your development journey with us or not, we are here to put your product into a production line. We offer the most competitive prices for the highest quality work, and we offer low to no minimums. Whether you need 1,000 units, 10 units, or a one-off custom piece, we’re here to fulfill whatever need arises.
Some kudos if you’re curious about what it’s like to be on board w/CBC
I hired Lauren to design a few new suits and update our previous best selling suit for the upcoming season. She was very professional, skilled, and answered all of my questions promptly and accurately. She has a great eye and talent for design and was able to understand and build on my brand’s vision extremely well. If you are looking for someone you can trust with your design/manufacturing process, you should go with Lauren. I’m looking forward to working with her again.Josh | Beach Baby Swimwear
Lauren and I have worked on my project for months and I instantly knew she would be a great fit for what I was looking for. Not only was she enthusiastic about my project but she also helped me understand all the steps it takes to design from concept to sketches. I appreciated that especially since I have zero knowledge in designs. The lines of communication were always open incase I had questions or needed her opinion and for me communication is key. I plan to work with Lauren again after my company launches because she showed me she’s able to think outside the box which is what my company is all about. Thank you again and I look forward to teaming up in the very near future!!Tiffany | TDS Couture

I’ve wanted to start my own activewear line for as long as I can remember, and when I finally decided to take the plunge, I knew I needed to start by finding an incredible product designer and expert in the field. I’m SO lucky to have found Lauren. She was a great sounding board for my (many) ideas and helped turn my vision into reality through her designs and tech pack. She provided thoughtful guidance, kept me updated through consistent communication, and helped make what I thought might be a confusing process super easy and clear. I highly recommend Lauren if you’re looking for a consultant and/or product designer!Lindsey | Dice Body
