In Acess, most of our handbags are designed by our in house design team based in Cardiff. Wales. Our team compose of a head of design (creative director) together with two design assistant. Below tells you more about how a wholesale handbags is designed.
The design team analysis the upcoming trends at least 6 months ahead to give them enough time to design and manufacture. Base on the trends from catwalks and WSGN, the creative director comes up with a different shape of bags that will go on to the coming seasons. At the same time, our soucring office in Hong Kong and China will start sourcing the suitable material which fits into the designers' profile. This step usually takes 2-3 months to complete and involve lots of commuication between the designer and the sourcing team in China.
Once the story theme boards for the coming season is finalised by the creative director, a meeting will be called together with the sales director and marketing executives. There will be serveral meetings in order to finalise the range. Sometimes there is conflicts between designer and sales director as some of the design maybe not commercial enough in the sales point of view and the designer may have to twist the designs.
Once the design is approved, the designers will finalise the details of the drawing. The team will give as detail information about the drawing as possible to the sampling technician so that they can produce a sample base on the drawing. Sampling is a time consuming process which takes 5-7 days to complete.
When handbags samples are made, it will post back to UK for designers' approval. Sometimes further testing will also be done on the material and the handbag handle to see if the quality and material pass our set standard if not the designer will suggest modification to meet the quality standard. Once the designer approve the sample, it will be manufactured in bulk. Our factory is capable to manufacture 30000 - 40000pcs of handbags per month depends on styles.
