The beginnings of running a fashion or textiles business can be full of obstacles and minefields that you never knew you would have to encounter.

One of these is creating product specification packs.

In this short course aimed for start-up businesses, Ariane will teach you the importance of getting the specification pack correct from the beginning.

Whether you are working with a local manufacturer or sending your information overseas, making small or large quantity’s you will need to be able to communicate what you would like your product to look like.

Having worked in the Lingerie and Fashion industry for over 16 years, and seen how much of a struggle many young businesses have when working with new manufacturers Ariane has the knowledge you need for how to put your own together and the information that needs to be included

From the very beginning of Ariane Bingham Sparkles and The Lioness and Her Unicorns, Ariane has wanted to help other people to grow and succeed. Call it an ethic of her business and this is just one of the ways she wants to support you

Sizing

Ariane takes great pride in well-fitting garments, ones that make you feel comfortable in your own skin - and with 17+ years of pattern making experience, we are confident you'll feel that way in your new pieces.

That Ariane often uses conscious grading* when grading her garment patterns into different sizes. Taking the time to consider if the standard +0.6mm increase on the bum cover of a bikini (for example) would be enough, or if our more curvier clients would be more comfortable with more cover? It takes time to perfect, and its time she feels is important to spend on her garments. For that reason, if two friends in a S and a XL bought the same garment, they may fit there bodies differently, to reflect their individually body shapes

Most of the fabric for our Swimwear and Sparkles has 4 way stretch which means that it shapes itself around the curves of your body beautifully. As we use so many different fabrics, we adjust the fit of patterns to ensure that a S/M/L etc all stay as true to size as possible, and recommend that you order swimwear based on your knicker and bra band size

Testimonials

I’m so glad I got this bikini top it’s like the holy grail - it stays on in the waves, my kids can pull at it, and a surprise bonus is super supportive and I feel super sexy wearing it. Absolutely LOVE it - thank you!

Nicole Jago

It was exactly what i was looking for in terms of festival wear that was modest for my curvy body type. The Cara Tops are great because they accommodate larger sizes while still seating the girls nicely.
The Jaimee shorts are cute and cheeky, and good for someone who doesn't want to show too much tummy but a bit of cheeky booty.
Overall, a really cute good quality set.
