What is a Garment Techpack?


Techpacks are a crucial part of the fashion industry. They are the ‘blueprints’ for your garment or accessory that is needed to bring your product from concept to creation. Creating techpacks is a necessary part of a fashion designer or technical designer’s job and is usually a skill that is requested when you are looking for a job in the industry.


Techpacks are used to communicate your designs effectively to the factories to make your design into a ‘1st sample’ (basically the 1st prototype of your garment). Fashion techpacks outline every element of the garment including the fabric, stitching, hardware, measurements and more.

Adobe Illustrator is a great tool that is used in the fashion industry to create techpacks.
