We are an award winning company specialising in a unique product development and production service.
We specialise in design, product development, production sourcing and delivery for small to medium sized brands and retailers, both in the UK and Off-Shore.
Our founder Fazane Fox has spent the past 13 years working in the fashion industry, firstly for a global clothing manufacturer developing and producing ranges for the likes of Hobbs, Jaeger, Monsoon, Boden, Whistles, John Lewis and many more, and secondly through designing and producing collections for her own womenswear label…..and of course more recently managing The Production Lab.
Fazane first worked as a Senior Account Manager for High Fashion a Chinese owned company with offices in the UK, USA, France & Italy. She travelled extensively during her time there to China, Hong Kong, America and France and regularly visited their garment factories in China as well as visiting their fabric, dying, spinning and weaving mills.
She left High Fashion in 2012 to concentrate on her own womenswear label ‘Fazane Malik’ which was operational until 2016 when she decided to focus solely on the Production Lab.
A year after starting her fashion label, Fazane started The Production Lab after noting a gap in the market to help designers develop their designs into a mass produced commercial product here in the UK, as well as to help already established brands upscale their production off-shore.
Fazane has won a number of awards for both her businesses. In 2013 she won ‘Midlands Independent Designer of the Year, In 2014 ‘Runner UP Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the Nottingham Post Women In Business Awards’ and more recently won two awards in the ‘Manpack Global Manufacturing Awards 2017…..Best in SME Retail Product Development UK and Award for Excellence in Customer Service Nottinghamshire’
Fazane is also from 2019 an external advisor to the Innovative Fashion Production MA at the London College of Fashion
With Fazane’s own experiences of the reality of running a womenswear label, her extensive production experience, coupled with her team of industry experts…..we believe that we are the perfect people to develop your ideas into reality!
