In November 2011, CADET opened its own factory in Bushwick, Brooklyn to launch their eponymous line. After purchasing some sewing machines, CADET created their own patterns and hired a sample maker to bring our designs to life. The primary focus was to develop garments that adhered to our quality and construction standards. CADET continued to buy sewing machines and eventually hired a small staff of tailors to produce the CADET line.
At CADET, we offer a wide range of product development services, allowing us to support fellow designers. We have our own brand, so we are highly aware of what it takes to get you production-ready. Our specialty has become product development with a fast turnaround, while taking better care of our customers by focusing on solving pattern and sample issues.
CADET can bring you from a sketch to production-ready sample by offering the following services:
- Tech Pack development
- Technical consultation
- Fit Models
- Graded patterns
At CADET we offer a wide range of pattern development services. We can create prototype patterns, whether from a sketch of your own, or from reference samples. Additionally, we can assist in the truing of existing patterns you may have by perfecting the balance, adjusting to the appropriate seam allowances, and other corrections.
Once you have made a prototype sample from your pattern, CADET can assist in the pattern correction phase directed by you or suggested by use to ensure a quality fitted garment. Depending on your design and fit needs, we can work through pattern revisions as needed.
CADET is also a sample room, creating high quality development samples, showroom/tradeshow samples or even one-of-a-kind custom garments. We have a superior attention to detail and deliver the highest of quality.
We have worked with large companies like Kenneth Cole, Nautica, Coach as well as smaller, independent designer - like ourselves. Additionally, we work with many celebrity stylists to develop custom looks for their clients.
