Fashion and clothing designers, denim manufacturers, outlet stores and retail stores all work together to provide consumers with choices and options when it comes to new and used denim clothing, including jeans, pants, skirts, casual shorts and other apparel and accessories.
With the popularity of blue jeans in the United States and around the world, every major clothing retailer sells blue jeans and related products. The process starts with the clothing designers working independently or with a large manufacturer to create pants which will appeal to customers of the brand. Style and cut, size and fit are all important aspects the designer has to consider when coming up with designs for jeans. Denim pants, skirts and shorts may be high rise or low rise, which describes where the waistband sits on the waist or hip. Skinny jeans and relaxed fit are other options, depending on the customers' personal style and whether they're looking for a casual or more formal style.
Once designs are complete, they are modeled on runways at fashion shows of individual designers, or go straight into production with the manufacturers. Additional thought is given by the designers and manufacturers with regards to denim color and treatments. For example, to achieve a vintage or other specific look, denim jeans may be acid washed, bleached, or given holes or other style details. The quality of the denim can determine the price of the finished jeans, whether they are cheap or expensive.
Once produced, jeans and other clothing items made from denim are sent to retail outlets, department stores and discount stores, who then sell the finished products to consumers directly, to men, women and children around the world.
