making the sewing pattern generally costs between 50 and 100€ : divided by amount of pieces made
making the prototype – depends on difficulty of the piece

MANUFACTURING
sewing the whole collection : divided by amount of pieces made

SMALL
sewing thread
brand & care labels
hang tags & cotton thread

ELECTRICITY, INTERNET, WATER
INSURANCE
RENT ATELIER

PAYING MYSELF between 5 and 15 %
for the design and the time I put in it

this shows us the TRUE COST

BELGIUM VAT counts for 21 %
this makes the RETAIL PRICE
(price for shops / reseller to buy the clothes for selling them in their shop)

this price has to be
MULTIPLIED
by 2 or 2.1 (this is the minimum a shops asks & needs to survive)

this brings us to the SELLING PRICE IN SHOP
( so when you buy an item in my shop i get a bigger %. in this case taxes, packaging, shipping, webshop costs & updating time, photoshoots and other costs in general are being covered too. )
