How To Start Your Own Clothing Line?

There are many reasons why you might want to start your own clothing line: You could be an eager designer with work to showcase, or you might be an entrepreneur who sees a gap in the market. Here’s how to take your first steps to getting your own clothing line off the ground and into the world’s store.

How To Start Your Own Clothing Line?

Build Your Portfolio

Every professional freelancer needs a portfolio of impressive work to show their clients. For fashion designers, this is your collection of previous designs and photo-sessions. Ensure that your portfolio contains only your very best work.

Start Your Website

Most clients will find you through your website: Showcase only your designs or turn it into an e-commerce website and sell your work directly through your website. What you do here is up to you. Just make sure that your website is professionally set up, easy to navigate and contains all of the information that a client might come there to find.

Design Software

Do you have your designs down yet? Professional design software can make your job a lot easier, and it can even spark your creativity into some new designs. Many professionals make use of Adobe Illustrator, Autodesk and C-Design fashion: It can make it much easier to get your designs on paper and out into the world.


Once you have your designs and your website, your clothing line will need to be produced. That’s where Omaha Shirts and Retro Shirtz come in to help.

Typical custom t-shirts take about 15 minutes to print. Bulk custom t-shirt orders can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days, depending on the number of printed shirts.
