This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!
Vikki Yau and the Fashionary Team recently launched FASHIONPEDIA: The Ultimate Fashion Bible, a project they quietly worked for two years. (Preorder Price: US $48.) It’s currently a Kickstarter project, and has already reached 500% of the funding goal!
FASHIONPEDIA is a visual fashion dictionary covering technical terms from style to material to production, with illustrations and infographics. It encompasses rich, extensive information and it is also very easy to read.
You can take a look at all of the pages of FASHIONPEDIA and check out the Kickstarter campaign. The campaign ends April 2, 2016. The Fashionary Team is also giving away a FASHIONPEDIA, so comment below for a chance to win. Vikki also joined us before, showing how to sketch fashion illustrations. Don’t miss it!
Want to make your own labels? Here’s a how-to for our hand-stamped version.
Labeling Your Garments
Today we have information about labeling from the manufacturing chapter of FASHIONPEIDA.
Labeling Your Next Project:
Applying labels to your creation not only gives your project a professional touch, but it also shares useful information such as brand information, size, fabric care to the customers.
Main Label: Shows the brand name or logo of a company.
Size Label: Defines a specific set of measurements of the human body.
Flag Label: Sewn at outside of the side seam. Flag labels normally include a brand logo or name and are used as a design feature.
Care Label: Shows the washing and ironing instruction.
Manufacturer Label: Shows the manufacturer’s code given by buyers. Most of the international buyers source garments from different parts of the world. In case buyers need to track the manufacturer of a particular product, they use this code.
Other Special Labels: Show other information customers or buyers want to know. For example, batch mark, country of origin, fiber content of the garment, etc.
Where to Put It:
There are no fixed rules for placing your label, however you can use the above diagram for reference.
Fabric Care Reference for Your Label:
You may also apply information about fabric care to the label. Different fabrics require different treatment, and you can refer to the information in these charts for your labels.
