Apparelmark's design and development skills especially shine in the athleisure & technical apparel industry

Athleisure & Technical Apparel

Our extensive background in apparel development has led us to work with some of the biggest players in the athleisure and technical apparel space, ranging from micro start-ups to multi-national apparel brands such as Lululemon.  Our team lives in the details and truly understands how to make each brand uniquely successful.  Pulling from our extensive technical fabric library, we spend the time to source and develop the best-suited fabrics for each piece that will perfectly balance performance and comfort.

Our skills truly shine when we are tasked with translating our technical knowledge into garments for focused industry-use, such as medical or workwear.  Working for the big players in these segments has forced us to explore deeper into what it means to have garments that function for all forms of the extreme.

How We Did It

We start by sourcing, developing and refining the fabric until we find the perfect match for your garment. We then work with you to outline a line plan that can bring your brand to life. We obsess over the details and fit to make sure that every piece moves and functions as intended. We outline all details to the factory in immaculately crafted Techpacks, and provide the support and coordination needed to bring your vision to life throughout the development and production phase.

Outdoor Tech & Outerwear

Residing in the Pacific Northwest provides many opportunities to be experts in this category. We experience rain, cold, snow, and sun, sometimes all in one day, so we fully understand the necessary properties required to make the best functioning outdoor gear. Our proximity to the mountains provides the perfect testing ground for snowboarding/ski and hiking apparel and offers daily inspiration for our designs.

How We Did It

Carrying over our extensive experience in yoga and athletics, we dial in our team’s expertise for the specific sport. We choose fabrics with performance attributes designed for gameplay and strive to blend innovation and style. In the design stage, we focus on versatile pieces for maximum use and push our creativity levels to develop unique details that are useful and recognizable for the brand and can extend through the years. We then work with the factory to ensure every detail is perfectly executed and delivered as intended.

Technical Tailoring Golf & Racket

The rise of club sports over the past couple of years has granted us the opportunity to expand and refine our technical knowledge into the specific category of Golf, Tennis, Pickelball and other racket sports. We love the nostalgic and refined vibe of these sports, which allows our team to inject creative spirit into every garment in this space. Focusing on range of motion, fabric with technical performance properties, quirky details, and styles that perform on-and-off the course/court, are what have proven to be successful for our clients.

How We Did It

We carefully curate fabrics and trims that are designed for the extreme. We dive deep into fabric construction and finishes to ensure we start with a suitable base for a lasting and fully functioning garment.

Fit, ease of movement, and functionality are key to designs in this category, where we pull from our 15+ years of living and breathing in this space. We also make sure to give the proper care and attention to all of the details that make the garment safe and functional for the wearer while guiding the factory to execute these details accurately in the development process.

Swimwear, Seamless & Close-to-skin

Producing swimwear and next-to-skin garments can be challenging without proper knowledge and experience. Our team pulls from years of designing the most supportive and best-fitting yoga wear in the industry and translates the latest trends and technologies into the most impeccably fitting garments.

We are able to establish successful brands in this space by ensuring the most comfortable second-skin fit and feel. We make sure to not compromise support, functionality, and style, and use our experience in plus-size grading to ensure brands can be inclusive to all.

How we did it

We search for innovative construction techniques and fabrics to support each brand’s vision and then obsess over the fit and how this can be supported in the design.

We dive deep into construction details, grading, and sizing to customize fit to the brand’s target audience and work with the factory to ensure it is executed accurately.
