We contacted Rajpal Singh, President of Saum Accessories Inc and COO of Scarlet Kiss Inc to discover the story and ethos behind Scarlet Kiss.
- Your designs seem to be sporting a more luxurious feel to them. What does luxury mean to you when it comes to lingerie?
Rajpal Singh: Lingerie can elevate a woman to the world of luxury as you sleep after a tiring day. Luxury Lingerie gives or rather boost confidence and self-esteem to the person wearing it. It is a delicate personal affair for a lady, but that doesn’t mean that privacy cannot be shaken and stirred with luxury. We wear good clothes to give out a certain perception about our personality. Be it casual, formal, sporty or anything else, it builds our persona. Same applies to Luxury lingerie and sleeping attire as well. If you are wearing a gorgeous gown with absolutely flawless makeup and hair but your bust is sagging, the entire look will go for a toss!! It’s extremely important to wear right bra under an attire to achieve the perfect look. Luxury Lingerie is all about woman’s empowerment, enhancement of stature, making yourself feel more feminine while drawing attention to different parts of your body amongst pleasing your partner.
- I think it’s important for consumers and retailers to know about the quality of materials and craftsmanship that goes into your collections. Could you tell us about your design and manufacturing process?
R.S: We engage forecasters to predict the colors, fabrics, textures, materials, prints, graphics, beauty/grooming, accessories, street style, and other styles that will reflecting a collection for the upcoming seasons. Each design starts with a Story Board; there are three phases to any collection:
- Inspiration Boards to shape the entrepreneur’s creative vision.
- Analysis and discussion of potential fabrics, styles, and trims.
- Flat sketches that represent the pieces for use by pattern makers.
- Research and advice on fabrics; costs, trendiness, utility, match with styles & hardware.
- Design, advice, and management of production of custom hardware and trims.
- Develop tags and labels that work with your logo; manage custom production of these.
- Technical sketches of apparel, tags, hardware, labels with measurements, angles.
- Technical packets for each style in the collection.
- Select qualified pattern maker and prototype maker for the styles
- Closely manage the creation of the patterns; in person reviews, phone calls, questions.
- Closely manage making of ONE prototype for each style; usually 2-3 attempts to get correct.
- Manage two fit sessions to assess prototypes’ fit on real models, one time corrections, and final fit.
- Provision of prototype pieces along with all documentation necessary for manufacture of sales samples.
We work with several factories in USA, Taiwan & China to undertake our production requirements.
