Identify Concerns
Your concerns should be focused on the concerns of your label. For example, I was concerned
that young, professional women don't have a large enough selection of clothing that can be
worn for multiple occasions. Example your concerns in detail. This is shouldn't be focused on
getting it done on time, or making it to nationals. What made you decide to design the
collection you did? What is the purpose?

Set a Goal

Set the goal of your label. Sure add in your goals for the project too. This should be kind
of like a business plan. My goals included designing six complete looks appealing to my
intended audience. Keeping my intended audience in mind during every aspect of the
project.

Form A Plan (who, what, when, where, how, cost, resources, and evaluation)

This is straight forward. Follow what it asks. Remember you are forming a plan to achieve
the goal you listed above. I included that I would conduct a survey to keep my intended
audience in mind.

rg

ACT

How are you going to follow through with your plan?

er

Follow up
What would you do differently? Do you feel your project was successful and why?

Your label is one of the most important parts of your project. Make it mean something. What do you
want the judges to remember about you? What do you want to put your name on? It is also important
to think about the man or woman wearing your clothes. What does he/she stand for? There are zero
limitations, so be creative! Along with the explanation you must have a physical label which would
serve as your logo. I made mine using Google Drawing. You can use anything. I have used paper
before. Please make sure this is in your portfolio!

Thankyouforyourparticipation!Feelfreetostayupdatedonmyprogress,Iappreciate
feedback.

Here is the survey I had every female teacher in my school district take. The judges always love
proof that you did research. And getting the community involved is what FCCLA is all about so
bonus points there. Make sure that your focus group is indeed your intended audience. For this
survey mine wasn't exactly my intended audience, but I made note of that in my oral presentation.
This type of research is not required but very impressive.

I did not make a graph for all the questions. Just the ones I got the
most valuable information from. This is because of the page limit of

These are easy points to earn or lose. Follow the rubric. I made each item needed bold so
I knew I wasn't forgetting anything. Make sure your information is correct. Take pictures
at the store to save a headache! Us judges know fabrics, we can tell if you just made stuff
up or have no clue what you're talking about! Do your research!

This is essentially an online profile for each garment. If you don't sell the look here you're in trouble. This
should include all the information you see while shopping online.
Because my information took up a whole page I put the information page on the right side of a spread and
my drawings on the left. It went two portfolio pages facing each other, and two blank pages facing each
other. The pages must be single sided but I wanted the judges to be able to look at my drawings and read the
corresponding information without flipping pages. No points were deducted (nor should they be, it follows
all the rules) but this is risky, there are some picky judges out there. I hope that makes sense!

I could have included a little more information here. Select around 4-5 retailers
(this is not a required number, or mentioned anywhere, I just feel that this is a
good amount) and give a good explanation as to why you chose them. Think of
your audience. Where do they shop? Are these retailers in their price range?
Geographically accessible?
Stay away from stores like TjMaxx. These stores get merchandise from
department stores that couldn't sell items. You want your clothes to sell.

Pricing... This is where I have taken the most points off as a judge. It's a lot of work but it
will be worth it. Figure the cost of production for each garment. Set a net profit amount and
do the math. If you don't know how to do this, Google it. If you want to really impress your
judges note that if you were a professional design you would be purchasing material in
bulk making retail prices less, or profit higher. Judges noted that my profit margin was a
little low on this project but no points were deducted. Charts are always a good way to
organize information!

This is pretty straight forward. Please make this about your career goals and not your life goals.
Great you want to have a family. Include it if you want, but you better have 5 other well developed
career goals. Make sure they are challenging, but still achievable. Put them in list form or
paragraph form. If they are in paragraph form the judges have to be able to skim through and find
all of them.

Please make sure you have directions for each garment you make. This is important. Write stuff
down as you construct the garment to save time, I wish I would have. If you don't know how to go
about writing this look online or at a store bought pattern.
