LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – If you haven’t heard of bespoke fashion, Los Angeles clothing manufacturer The Evans Group (TEG) aims to change that this year. Led by founder Jennifer Evans, TEG gives both established and emerging fashion designers the chance to start a clothing line. Evans also stresses the importance of maintaining ethical and sustainable fashion design practices.
But what is bespoke fashion design?
What is Bespoke Fashion?
‘Bespoke’ means custom-made. Custom-made clothing lines are TEG’s bread and butter, with a bevy of impressive clients reaching all the way back to 2005. Since then, TEG has worked alongside independent fashion brands like the women-owned Hiraeth and indie trendsetter Greg Lauren.
Bespoke fashion doesn’t just apply to tailoring clothing, either. According to TEG, “[Bespoke] applies to various items, like furniture, shoes, and even computer software. “
Along with taking bespoke clothing orders from determined designers, TEG is committed to bucking the ever-growing trend of fast fashion.
While bespoke fashion has always been around, the rise of fast fashion has redoubled efforts to combat its detrimental impact on the environment. What results is the use of more sustainable materials.
By using materials like organic hemp and more innovative fibers, you directly reduce chemicals in the environment. But reducing the use of chemicals is just one step of cleaning up the tonnage of waste created by the fashion industry; it’s a crucial and defining step.
As the company states, “The use of more environmentally-friendly materials equals better quality bespoke clothing. Simple as that.”
Better Practices (both Ethically and Environmentally)
The upward trend of environmentally conscious business practices and organic materials spells out success for bespoke fashion and working conditions. By focusing on local talent and more sustainable practices, Evans hopes to stem the tide of poor working conditions in the Global South.
When taking on a client at her Los Angeles headquarters, Jennifer Evans hires local textile workers to create bespoke fashion.
Hiring local workers to work in the vicinity of her Downtown Los Angeles clothing factory fits in nicely with the company’s ‘made in LA manufacturing’ philosophy.
A Better Fit
A massive plus for fashion designers starting a clothing line is making sure everything fits. Bespoke fashion is explicitly defined by its exact measurements, meticulous attention to detail, and ensuring everything fits.
For example, TEG cites the work of renowned costume designer Clint Ramos, who recently outfitted superstar Jennifer Hudson for her role as the legendary Aretha Franklin in Respect.
Ramos explains: “I would say, 75 to 80 percent of what Jennifer wore in the movie was bespoke. For me, it was important that I needed to do all of her clothing bespoke … because of Jennifer’s proportions.”
Designing clothing to fit your model is crucial to the success of a clothing line. If you want your fashion brand to take off, finding a good fit makes all the difference.
Jennifer Evans and her production team spend weeks designing and producing high-quality clothing that follows strict measurements from ‘TEG Specification Sheets.’ These are effectively the detailed schematics to make anywhere from one clothing sample to 500.
