TFE is a vertically-integrated fashion development and production house with exquisite craftsmanship. Our goal to help local & domestic designers reach their best potential.



    Development is crucial when creating your styles. Our highly qualified in-house team will assist you every step of the way. From patterns to fittings and samples we assure you have a successful launch and are production-ready. Ask about our development package deals when launching 5 or more styles. If you're new and not sure what development is, scroll down to the bottom and you will find a video titled "what is development".  


    We stock a wide range of Sustainable and Eco-Friendly yarns which we knit ourselves here in Los Angeles.  Fleece, Jersey, French Terry and much more. We will create the ideal fabric for your designs as long as you tells us exactly what you need or provide us with a swatch. (Min order required)


    Whether you have done your development with us or outside all we need is your production pattern and salesman sample. We offer a broad range of production services in most categories, with competitive costing and guaranteed quality. We accommodate low MOQ (minimum order quantity).


    If you are interested in Design Consultation, Marking & Grading, Tech packs, Souring Trims or Special Fabrics, we can help alleviate the workload by creating a custom package that suits your needs.


    Our highly experienced team of designers, pattern makers and seamstresses will bring your vision to life, whether it is a custom made, costume or a complex art installation. 

What is Development?

We get asked these questions very frequently by start up designers, what is development and do I need it? and the answer is YES! Before we produce any product, we first need to create a mold(pattern) for it. The process is a little more intricate than it sounds. To help you understand what it is, see the video below the step by step process. Thanks to NICK VERREOS.

For those you are not good at sketches, no worries our team will help.

Our Team & Facility 


Do you charge for consulting?

Yes, we have a consulting fee for any additional work or help you may need that wasn't included in your package. However we do not charge for the initial consultation in which we will go in depth into your brand's needs. 

Do I have to do full package ?

Not at all. The option is there for those who need it. No strings attached! 

Can you help source my fabric ?

Yes, we stock a variety of yarns that we can knit for our customers if we do not have the fabric available for you we also have a very large network of suppliers we can suggest.  

Our Clients

  • Love you guys for being the key to my success. I couldn't have done it without you. I almost walked away from what's now a multi-million dollar business, after going through hell with so many unprofessional development facilities. I guess the biggest lesson in my life is that I only had to be right once, so glad you were it. We’ve been at it for five years, and cheers to the next 5… "kisses"

  • I can't begin to thank the team for their incredible assistance and knowledge of the fashion business even outside of the manufacturing. Thank you for being super attentive and making sure I got all the tools and information to build my business. I was never charged for all the connection and sources that were provided to me, that’s unheard of.  We can't wait to to fly to LA for our spring season launch...
