LONDON HEAD OFFICE
Paragon Design teams search and analyse the latest fashion trends worldwide creating distinct ranges with
retailer focused handwriting. Working alongside each retailer, Paragon’s design team works first to understand the retailers brand and market position in order to create product commercially suitable for the retailer and end consumer.
Working closely with design, our fabric sourcing team offers the latest innovative and fashion forward fabrics that are commercially viable for production processes. With a huge trend driven in-house fabric library, possibilities are endless!
Our in-house pattern making allows us to gain a better understanding of the construction of the product with a view to achieving a more commercial and cost-efficient construction that can be passed onto our retailers. Our Saville Row pattern cutters are able to construct patterns within a few hours ready for sampling!
Our sampling facility (metres away from our pattern cutters!) are a team of experienced fabric handlers, cutters and machinists able to quickly understand even the most complicated patterns with a view to
creating customer ready samples within hours.
PRODUCT DEVELOPERS & SALES
Each product type has its own product development sales team liaising with relevant customers and suppliers. Working in tandem with both the design team and merchandisers, they are able to assess product
commerciality from a financial perspective while understanding the product needs and product structure of each retailer.
Our team of experienced garment technologists are individually assigned according to product type and customer. Experienced and knowledgeable of the materials and construction involved they assist in pre-empting any potential production issues ensuring that the production process is as smooth as possible.
With a dedicated fabric testing team, Paragon is able to ensure that all fabrics and materials involved in the production process are suitable to the standards of each retailer. Testing is an imperative part of the production process ensuring that products are commercially suitable and safe for consumers.
MERCHANDISING & SHIPPING DEPARTMENT
All critical paths are monitored by our merchandisers who are in constant communication with our satellite offices to ensure that production is a smooth process and that all dates are adhered to. Our shipping department ensures that all goods arrive to our warehouse or customer distribution centres in a timely manner.
GARMENT PROCESSING & WAREHOUSING
Another key part of the Paragon setup is a garment specialised processing warehouse. With a hanging
capacity of over 100,000 garments and full processing equipment, all production passes by our warehouse for a last quality check before being prepared for delivery.
ADVANCED IT INFRASTRUCTURE
Consolidating all internal and external departments is a vast and complex Product Lifecycle Management and
Enterprise Resource Planning system that is a centralised point of information for the company both
locally and internationally. The rapid availability of information ensures timely response to customers as well
as the possibility of quick decision making in order to avoid any potential delays.
