Back to Case Studies
Chylissa Chante, the founder of her own brand, embarked on her mission to create a sustainable women's clothing brand that echoed her ethical principles. Committed to quality and inclusivity, she aimed to offer fashion that catered to diverse body types while adhering to eco-friendly practices. However, her path was riddled with challenges associated with steep manufacturing costs, extended lead times, and the intricate sourcing of sustainable fabrics.

Before partnering with RESOURCE, Chylissa grappled with a multitude of obstacles. After graduating from FIT, she started her own brand while working as a designer, with limited time and budget. She faced exorbitant manufacturing expenses, with single garment samples costing thousands of dollars. High minimum order quantities coupled with the struggle to secure sustainable fabrics hindered her brand's potential growth. To realize her vision, Chylissa needed an affordable, sustainable, and efficient solution to overcome these barriers.
Making small batch to be sustainable
RESOURCE presented Chylissa with an innovative and sustainable manufacturing platform that catalyzed a transformation in her brand's trajectory. With a flat rate of just $50-100 per sample, RESOURCE revolutionized her production costs. The platform also facilitated flexible fabric sourcing options, aligning seamlessly with Chylissa's ethical ethos. Through collaboration, her brand saw improvements in product quality, precise fitting, and streamlined processes. What used to cost her to sample one piece now can support her development of an entire collection (over 15 pieces). More importantly, she is spending only fraction of the time as she no longer has to do everything on her own: fabric sourcing, sample making and coordinating with manufacturers.
