This year we helped many clients with their start ups. It’s a sign of renewed creativity and experimentation that people are once again making new products. Launches have been slow going since 2008 but we are headed in a new direction. A number of these bold people have not yet gone to market so I will wait to announce their products when they do.

Aaluuka, an all made in the US (and hip product), has made a successful “studio to street” launch this year.  I am seeing the gear on women even in Albuquerque. For more visit has completed 3 flight suit styles especially fitted for the female body that have been in works for 2 years. We will post that work soon.

Sierra Peaks and Marpac are 2 companies that we have been working with in Albuquerque.

In October we began working with Koolmono, a print kimono kids line that is delightful.


Patterns and prototypes for an apparel utility patent on women’s specific flight suits were completed.  In 2010 pattern-design discovered that women were wearing men’s flight suits, there was no female fit only custom orders or tailored to fit suits for women. We introduced a patent pending garment to a few flight suit manufacturers. We worked with SuitsUSA, a custom flight suit and coverall maker, to update the fit and computerize the patterns for their men’s suits. Our innovator this year is Aaluuka, an exciting start up takes fitted pants and tops from the workout studio to the streets. The line will be introduced in 2012. We worked with Mantra on designing and patterning their sustainable uniform line. We also worked on a designer dress line, plus size dress line, high end golf line and firemen’s jackets and pants, printed T shirt group.


We are happy to continue to work with Benchmark, Sense, Armorshield, Point Clothing, Melons & Peaches and a few others who are waiting to announce their start ups. This year : Discovery Trekking owner/talent/entrepreneur Leslie Hanes is working with us on developing apparel and related products. We have delivered a few styles to Alessandra of Lalas Pequenos as well as Anna Elmore’s, Goddess Gear production patterns. We are developing a nursing top line with Cassandra Brainard. Katey O’Neil is also keeping us busy with her designer line launch. In a few months we will be able to reveal 2 new projects, one is a sports related line and the other is an apparel utility patent that we have been developing since March.


New clients this year:we helped Point Clothing’s owner Denise Silveira launch a business casual separates line, Noor a designer suit and blouse line and Whitten Grey, a designer girl's dress and separates line. Also we have completed a men's flight suit for the Mars mission.


New clients: And more design work for us with Melons & Peaches Lingerie a plus size line. Then we took on a couture quality bridal line by Alisa Benay. Also new for us were: Adooka a designer kid's line, Dallybrand an updated western shirt line for women riders and enthusiasts, Armorshield a uniform line, Sea Goddess swim wear line and Plentty a large size skirt line.


Most importantly we took on more design work; Pattern-Design was hired to design a high end lingerie line for the start up company La Coi Mondain. We took the line from concept through production: designed, sketched, completed presentation boards, designed laces, created new fabrication and trim treatments, designed prints, created color themes and chose base fabrics for a fashion forward look and fit. We delivered the "fit" prototypes and production patterns to the Hong Kong factory. The line is now in it's 1st phase of production and we will post it's progress which is slated for a 2008 opening.

In addition to working with our ongoing clients, we have picked up new ones: Harlot Wear, Olimac Mfg.Corp, HyPERCEPTION, and many start ups that we will report on when they are ready to show.
