Students are to bring a new product or product line to market. It should be a “new division” of an existing Company. Consider that you are working for a retailer, designer or brand. You realize a “void” in the marketplace. What would this line look like? Made of? Priced? Manufactured? The new product line should be marketable, saleable & make sense for the “parent” Company. The project should include the following:
1. A merchandising calendar—reflecting the necessary tasks and duration of each. 2. Market research –the competition, price points, voids in the marketplace, need for your product line.
3.Color story & fabric story. Why your product line is “trend right”
4.Attributes & features of your product line
5. Specification sheet—include at least one spec sheet ( flat with basic measurements)
6. Cost sheet-include at least one cost sheet
7.Sales & promotion strategies-how will this product line be launched? Advertised? Social media?
8.Sourcing & manufacturing—where will the product be manufactured? Why? What issues might occur?
9.Tech pack—A complete tech pack including a spec sheet, cost sheet, sketch, fabrication & trim information.
