Designlab Lk is an allround design studio for fashion & print design with a sustainable and ethical approach.
We think about people and planet during all steps of the design process and always aim to keep the CO2 footprint as low as possible.
We both work for sustainable brands and brands that are making conscious choices and are on their way of being more sustainable. We can advise brands that are not quite there yet on how to improve their design process and supply chain towards a more sustainable approach.
We can offer the complete fashion-designing-package. From developing concept moodboards, colorcards, designing a complete collection of styles as well as prints, making collections ready for production in technical drawings and stylesheets, making sizespecs, a production follow-up or travelling to manufacturing countries.
