All The Tools You'll Ever Need To Successfully Manage Your Product Development Strategies, Production, & Commercial Garment Manufacturing. 

Most of us don't learn how to make commercial garments or to work with factories; we sink or swim and wack-a-mole our production problems until they go away, but never really solve them. Until you learn how to solve these problems, the clothes you make and the way you make them will experience problems. Resulting in loss of sales, customer returns, and quality issues. 

I show organizations, emerging fashion designers, brand owners, and new fashion professionals how to solve their PD and production problems, saving them time and money. 

Enroll in Nic Hyl Fashion University today and I'll show you the methods, tools, and frameworks the pros use! 

Say yes to managing your product development, production and garment manufacturing processes like a pro! 

 Learn in as little as 30 days (or on your own timeline)!

Hi! I'm Nic Hyl-Your New Production Bestie

Ten years ago I sold everything I had and moved to New York City with $300 and 5 suitcases for a job I had just accepted sight unseen over the phone 2 weeks earlier from Norma Kamali herself. This job HAD to workout. But I struggled a lot at first. You see, production is a beast all it's own and I hadn't previously worked in that area; My design degree had not prepared me for the apprenticeship that was heavily rooted in production. 

With everything riding on this opportunity and having no back up plan or money I was determined to make it work. I shut my mouth, opened my ears and learned everything I could about my new role in domestic production from Norma; and I got really great at it. I remember one of the vendors in the garment district once told me, "a year at Norma Kamali is like 10 years anywhere else." No truer words had ever been said. 

After just over a year, Norma had to let some staff go and I was one of them. About 3 months later, I got hired for a job at Ralph Lauren working in Global Product Development and Garment Manufacturing; I had officially entered the big league. Even though I had learned so much from Norma, international production is a different beast and I had no clue what I was really doing. So I had to learn on the job...again. Using the same strategy of closing my mouth, opening my ears and absorbing everything around me from some of the best and brightest in the business

Once I left RL and started my own brand, Nic Hyl, I had no problem with developing and producing beautiful quality product. I was so great at it that people I didn't even know would reach out to me asking for advice and tips on how to do the same with their product. 

I finally created this course to share all of my knowledge, advice and tips to help anyone struggling (like I was in the beginning), so you can master your product development, production, factory relationships, teams and everything that goes into creating the product of your dreams.
