Anyone can start a clothing line, but when it comes to creating cohesive designs and branding elements, there are few people who truly understand what it takes. The creative process starts with really understanding what you’d like your brand to represent.

From there it takes some time to fully develop the concept and actually start designing art that your market will be familiar with. They say good art is something that is familiar to the senses, yet different enough to intrigue your audience. Throughout this video you will find how that correlates to a clothing brand, and what you need to consider if you’re starting a clothing line from scratch.
