LOS ANGELES, CA, Sep 28, 2017 – In 2016, Charney’s second wind came to life by introducing Los Angeles Apparel to wholesalers in the fashion world. While ensuring his commitment to quality apparel, and providing a living wage to local workers, he continues his quest in designing and developing trendy clothing with a business model unlike other apparel companies. By creating so-called “chaos,” Los Angeles Apparel continues to challenge the norm in all parts of the process and raises the bar with quicker manufacturing turn-around, less material waste, using textiles and yarns all made in the USA, and all their garment pattern making, grading and cut and sew are done under one roof.
“I know Tukatech, they helped me set up a state of the art design and production systems with Tukacad, Tuka 3D for virtual samples, automatic fabric spreaders, automatic cutters for production, Smartmark that saves me time and fabric, even a laser cutter for my development. Without these affordable systems, making in LA will be just a dream. Thank you Tukatech for being with me again,” commented Dov Charney.
“While designing the game plan for the new operation, Dov and I sat down and worked a plan to automate every possible step, I love his energy and his passion, adding his knowledge of yarns to fabrics to products to fit is absolutely a unique formula for success,” says Ram Sareen, CEO and founder of Tukatech. “Two disruptive companies working together again to cause chaos and shake up the market, seems so much more charming the second time around,” added Ram Sareen.
