Fashion CAD & product development services

Complete fashion design services for apparel brands

From concept to reality, trust CLOAK with turning your vision into production ready tech packs. We assist both start-ups and established brands with every step in the fashion design life cycle.

Chrome Fashion Design Agency

We are an agency of fashion nerds, obsessed with every aspect of the fashion design process. This includes both the conceptual and technical phases of apparel product development.

Creative development

As creativity is likely what lead you to us in the first place, you might not need our help in this regard! That said, even the most creative ideas sometimes need to be channelled through a filter of experience. If you have a great idea, but you don’t quite know how to structure a solid plan to bring your vision to life, we are here to assist.

Technical Development

The technical development of an apparel product can be a complicated affair. Without meticulous technical planning and execution, a product could easily fail to meet your standards. Our team has a strong technical foundation and we can guide you through all the technical steps needed to create a production-ready Tech Pack and/or pattern.

Start-up Consulting

We know the challenges that start-up brands face, especially those who don’t have prior fashion industry experience. We also understand the time constraints that come with a push for ROI. To help make the journey a little easier, we offer mentorship and consulting services to brands that are in the start-up phase.
