The Clothing Manufacturer

Chrischel Collections started with off with an objective catering to a market niche by designing and producing limited fashion pieces for each design. Keeping in minds that “Most lady does not like to be seen wearing the same dresses in any occasion”.

Our Start

We started by marketing our designs to boutiques in Malaysia and Singapore and we are very encouraged by the good responses received from the boutiques we approached. We market our services differently. Instead of wholesale our design, we presented our sample designs to client and we allow them to make some changes on the design through discussion. Changes can be small changes on the design, fabric type, colour and accessories.

The changes does not divert from its original design concept. These changes can be from sleeveless to short or long sleeves etc. Having our designer and factories, we can make required changes. Whereas for wholesale product, they cannot make the changes as the design are produced or buy in bulk. “What you see is what you get”.

Those days fabric are bought locally and most of time available in limited stock. We have now improved our logistic and supply chain. We source our fabric overseas as the local suppliers are usually far more expensive.

Most of the boutiques has different clientele and they have different target segment of the market. Some are selling to teen, working class or to the older target etc. Therefore, we can make such changes according to the boutique requirement.

Private Label

By allowing the boutique to make changes through discussion and consultation, boutique now able to have their own Private Label and promote their own branding.  Boutiques that brought their stock from wholesale market faces challenges of having several boutiques selling the same design at different prices. They do received feedbacks from their client such as “other shop is selling the same design cheaper.”

T-shirt

Later down the road,  our customer started requesting us to produce customize t-shirt uniform for companies. We provide both ready-made and custom design t-shirt. Lately, we are producing eco-friendly t-shirt made from re-cycle plastic bottle fabric (RPET).

As most of these boutique now able to have their own branding by having their own private label and tagging.  We allow the boutique to make some changes on the design and fabric type and colour as well. With this changes, they can call it their own design.  But for the last few years and it was great success. we received requests from client especially online shop, to help them in manufacturing their custom design pieces thus increasing their branding.
