Bespoke Uniform Design Process

 

Before the Fashionizer Couture Uniform design team starts working with you, we like to ensure that we understand your business uniform requirements. We will also want to know the history behind your brand or property, your company culture, your objectives, the scope of work, budget and timeline. 

Before we can send you our proposal, we will try and understand how your operation works, which job roles require uniforms and how these will need to integrate into your working environment: including the décor, colour schemes and climate. We will ask you a variety of questions in order to understand your priorities, so we can offer you the right uniform solutions. 

Our uniform design process is interactive, involving you in decisions. We will also ensure that the design concepts are developed to enable a balance between style, durability and performance.

TESTING & TRIALS

 

  • Fashionizer tests all fabrics for performance: abrasion, snagging and shrinkage.
  • We would recommend that you engage in a wearer trial to enable feedback from staff, management and housekeeping. 
  • We will then look at how feedback and test results change the designs, before we proceed to produce your garments.
  • Sometimes, we do not have time for this part of the process, and then we rely on the technical testing and implement any tweaks to fit or details into the next production.
