Starting your fashion brand can be really, really exciting!! … and also, very, very overwhelming.

We get that and we’re here to help!

We specialise in garment construction, apparel development and production. We offer product development packages based on 3 of the key stages to starting your brand:






Stage #1 has been broken down into 2 consultation sessions – Session #1: Brand Development and Session #2: Ready for Market. Depending on where you are at in the design and production process will determine which session is right for you. 




Cost: $500

Time: 1 hour

Delivery: Google Meet

Included: Studio ILKA - Development TECH PACK

The Brand Development Session has been designed specifically with the emerging designer in mind. You have an idea!.....however you don’t know how to turn that idea into a tangible product that meets industry standards – then a Brand Development Session is for you.

This one-hour session is designed to bring you clarity around your brand. We work together to identify your style, review your ideas for design and give you valuable resources and industry contacts, so you will be able to confidently source your fabrications for production – at the right price!

Included in this session is a blank Studio ILKA – Development TECH PACK. This document will outline the specifications of your garment clearly communicating your design for any manufacturer. This is an essential document for sampling and the production of your garments. We will step you through how to use this document so you can avoid making costly mistakes during the production process.

This one-hour consultation session is hosted online via Google Meet every Wednesday or Thursday. We suggest finding a quiet location (or great set of headphones) and making sure you have a good internet connection so we can maximise our time together. Once your booking is complete, we will send you a pre-consultation information sheet to fill out before our meeting.

The Ready for Market Consultation is a deep dive into your brand strategy and current collection. We take a look at your TECH PACKS and any samples (if you have them), to see if there are any technical or fabrication developments that can be improved upon – making sure each piece is ready for production.

Together we explore your marketing and sales strategy, we review your product positioning, pricing structure and spend time working through our Studio ILKA – Manufacture TECH PACK, included in your Ready for Market Consultation. This document is a comprehensive examination of the financial costs involved in making each garment, detailing a profitable mark-up for wholesale and recommended retail price for your brand.

We look at expected production costs for each piece and evaluate any changes that may need to be made to keep your brand priced according to your target market and desired brand positioning.

The Ready for Market Consultation is perfect for these brands that are almost ready for production or you have been in business for 1 or 2 years and would like to review your brand positioning and financial structure.

To maximise your Ready for Market Consultation you will need to have completed the Studio ILKA – Development TECH PACK (or similar).

This consultation is NOT suitable for emerging designers or for brands that are still in the Brand Development Stages.

The Ready for Market Consultation will take 1.5 hours and is hosted online via Google Meet every Wednesday or Thursday. Upon booking you will be advised to email your completed Development TECH PACKS for review prior to your consultation session.

You will also be sent a pre-consultation work sheet to complete so we’re able to maximise our consultation time together.
