ABOUT US

We are a new generation of innovative fashion engineers fully committed to promoting ‘Made in New York’ garment manufacturing.  Within our two divisions, Design Lab and Pattern Studio, we service both emerging and established brands with support from design development to production in the apparel industry.

 

Acme Design Lab offers emerging designers the ability to use our expertise as a starting point to build their collection.  From design refinement to sourcing fabrics and trims through our network of local and overseas suppliers, we help client build infrastructure and offer full services to designers who are looking to build a solid foundation to grow their brands.

Acme Pattern Studio specializes in both hand and digital pattern making and offer technical solutions to established brands that would like to outsource the service to the Garment District.  Our meticulously constructed patterns in both traditional hand and new 3D prototyping technology offer solutions to bridge a designer’s concept to production friendly standards without losing a brand’s overall look and feel.  

 

Acme Design New York is founded on the belief that design must dictate over production, not the other way around.  We understand a designer’s point of view, and our strength is in our ability to carry out new ideas while preserving a designer’s vision from development through to the production stages.  As a team, we help address issues that emerging brands face at the early stages, and advise on a strategy to move forward the project at the most cost effective way.

 
 
 
 
 

OUR APPROACH

Acme Design New York was born naturally from our own focus to tailoring and a discipline to fit.  We approach each collection as a team, lending our expertise and tailoring our services to focus on a brand's continued vision and values.

Our Design Lab, the product development division, facilitates designers from design refinement, to fabric and trim sourcing and management. Our studio understands the latest trends and styles, and utilizes our extensive network of vendors in the New York Garment District and overseas to offer a full support service for young designers who are looking to streamline process and develop a solid infrastructure to build upon. With a history of working on both the design and production sides of the fashion industry, our studio offers a solution for a smooth transition of design concept to production.

The Pattern Studio division services designers who are looking to outsource their pattern making.   In addition to our expertise in hand pattern making, we are well versed in digital pattern making, using Optitex and offer 3D rendering in addition to traditional fittings.  Our expertise and meticulous patterns allow transformation of even the most couture-worthy constructions into production friendly details.
