Collection Development
Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Barcelona



About

Whether you are a first-time, or seasoned designer, our development packages give you all the tools you need to successfully budget and plan the launch of your line.  Our vertically-integrated studios are located in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Barcelona, allowing designers from all-over the globe a chance to work hands-on with our team, or remotely with the studio most appropriate to the task.  

Services

In-house services range from making patterns and samples for the runway or showroom, to filling small volume production orders under 50 pieces per style.  All in-house work is done in one of our 3 studios, by our team of expertly-skilled craftsmen working together in a vertically-integrated manner.  Work is completed on a contractual-basis, with all pricing and turnaround times agreed-upon prior to commencing work.  Clients are assigned a Project Manager at the start of their project, who works side-by-side with them on the logistics of their project, and a Patternmaker who works with them on the execution of the project.  All team members are exceptionally experienced, and are pleased to share their expertise with clients, answering questions throughout the process. It is our goal to provide an inspiring and friendly atmosphere for the designer, while offering the highest quality in the industry.

Background

In 2004, Jennifer launched The Evans Group in a shipping container in Laguna Beach, with the idea of specializing in small volume production for independent designers.  After serving more than 500 designers, and with many twists and turns over the years, Jennifer's newest venture takes the aspects that her team excelled in, making patterns and samples and filling small volume production orders, and has expanded on them to lead TEG International.  While the company has a new model also partnering with artisan factories, locally and around the globe, the same core development and small volume production team remains with Jennifer, providing the exceptional quality they became known for 10 years ago.
