Design, the coming into being of the project
Everything begins with the design. Marck & Balsan has an in-house styling studio with product managers and stylists.
They follow and decode new trends to create modern clothing that meets professional specifications. When needed, stylists make customer visits to make sure they fully understand the customer’s wishes and the challenges in terms of image and safety.
Marck & Balsan then creates items and/or collections that reflect the company’s values and meet the specific technical and standard requirements identified.
The prototype and the uniform take shape
The creation comes to life. Marck & Balsan’s design studio produces the patterns for the collection (representations of the front and back of the garment). The attention paid to this research and development phase is crucial to the next stage of the project.
The items take shape as their prototypes are produced. The prototypes help to make the collection seem real, as until then, it has only been viewed via sketches or 3D visuals, and they also mean that wear tests can be carried out. The prototypes are reviewed and improved, if necessary, until the customer is fully satisfied.
Production, a unique skill
The dressmakers enter the scene. Once the prototypes have been approved, Marck & Balsan’s dressmakers reproduce the items identically following the rigorous specifications provided by the design studio.
Invisible hems, inserting bias, simple or complex darts, buttonholes, etc. are some of the stages that pass through numerous expert hands.
The items that leave our production lines therefore comply fully with the technical, ergonomic and comfort standards set out in the specifications.
The art of detail, a fundamental value
The little touch that makes all the difference. Identity clothing manufacturers are differentiated by their attention to detail and customer service.
The art of detail involves finding the significant differentiating element that conveys the company’s DNA through its uniform. Is it the fabric? Is it the colour? Is it the item? Is it the bias? There are many possibilities available to the Styling Studio, depending on the customer.
The art of detail also means ensuring that the whole garment is given the same level of attention and quality, up to the minutest details.
R&D, the key to success
The Research & Development department is made up of a team of engineers and technicians who are highly specialised in their respective fields. They are constantly exploring new innovations in order to meet the technical demands of the present and the future.
The R&D department and the Design Departments work hand in hand to:
- Develop products that are rigorously tailored to the needs of each customer,
- Explorer new possibilities (new materials, new technologies, new production methods) that will allow innovative product solutions to be offered in the future.
