A garment flat drawing is a digital sketch that displays a garment as if it were laid "flat". It's used to communicate designs technically - whether that's to a pattern-maker, technical designer, merchandiser, or manufacturer.
Garment flats are also a must-have in any tech pack or fashion design portfolio.
CLOSE TO SEASON TRENDS
After the global financial recession, the fashion and apparel industry has faced a number of challenges. To remain profitable in the environment of keen global competition and increasing material and operational costs, shortening production lead time has become a new source of competitive advantage.
Fast fashion brand such as Zara, H&M and Primark have fast lead times and get the newest styles to market as soon as possible. With between 15 and 20 collections launched per year, the traditional concept of "seasons" is becoming less and less important within the fashion industry.
At the core of fashion are the concepts of change and newness. Fast fashion embodies people's urge for change in an extreme form of the fashion industry.
Consumers have access to vast amounts of design and trend information. It enhances consumer confidence as they make fashion decisions this accelerating adoption and innovation.
So how can manufacturers and retailers ensure they maintain a competitive edge in the fashion industry and stay ahead of the competition?

They can react quickly to emerging trends and deliver them at their peak before their competitors do. This requires short lead times that are achieved by using quick response and lean supply chains.
