When a collection is complete and all decisions are made (and there are many!), each garment is outlined in a style information sheet. This sheet gives all important data about the garment. The examples below are from my "Flying High" collection. Inspired by the history of women in aviation, I created a collection of mix-and-match garments. One of the items is a skirt with panels based on the shape of an airplane's propellers.
The style information sheet for this skirt has three pages. It gives the people working with the designer (e.g., fabric buyers, cutters, pattern makers, etc.) information that will allow for the garment to be sewn correctly. Without the sheet, this skirt may not look anything like my attention when sewn. The sheet has technical flats of the skirt, various color and fabric options, season, and measurements. Ultimately, information must be complete and presented in a clean and informative manner.
I enjoy putting style information sheets together as they help me solidify my ideas about all aspects of each garment. They ensure that all the creativity I put into my work is shared with the world exactly the way I wish.
