Design Snack – Plan for the Seasons

By NYIAD Mentor on May 6th, 2015

Welcome to another NYIAD Design Snack! In this week’s video, we learn jewelry designers who wish to sell their goods to jewelry retailers need to plan well in advance.

If you want to have designs ready to go in time for the December holidays, for example, you will need to be ready to show them during the summer. Begin designing early in the year so that you can show and take orders during the summer months, than scale up production and be ready to ship before Thanksgiving.

By planning and coming up with new designs in advance, you’ll be ready to meet the demands of retailers who are looking to nail down their inventory in time for the shopping rush.
