Design is hard, but it doesn’t have to be!

Confused about how to choose the right colors? You know roughly the look you want to go for... but you don't know how to choose the right shades and make it all co-ordinate. 

Picking fabrics should be fun, let's make it that way! What blend of cotton vs polyester do you need? Unsure about fabric types, weaves and weights?

Terrible at drawing? Think you can’t draw and wishing you had an artistic streak? That’s not a problem... we've got a proven 'hack' for you.

Wondering what’s the right way to format your branding/patterns/graphics? Can’t figure out how to get your design the way you’d like it and unsure which way it’s “supposed to be done”?

Hi, I’m Belinda of Tech Packs Co!
I'm a technical fashion designer from London. I got my first job in fashion at the age of 15 stapling swatch cards together! Since then, I've been helped hundreds of brands to go from design idea to commercial product lines. I’ve been designing & creating tech packs for more than a decade for household name brands and independent designers around the world.

Is this course for me?

This course is for: 
  • Entreprenurs wanting to learn fashion design.
  • New designers manufacturing their first sewn product. 
  • Apparel start-ups looking for designer tips, tricks & shortcuts. 
  • Anyone who wants to learn how to create commercially viable product designs. 
The entire process is overwhelming. I find your lesson a perfect guide to help break down the processes into manageable pieces.
