5+ years experience.
With over 20 years of clothing industry experience I have worked with department stores, major multinational brands, independent brands, fabric mills and manufacturers on four continents.
I draw on extensive knowledge on how the clothing industry functions offering a complete cradle to grave service for anyone involved with clothing.
Today, every business has to design, visualise and test new ideas in record time to stay ahead of the competition. Consumers are ever more demanding, changeable and requesting personalised products.
I answer these evolving market conditions with artificially generated ?real life? garments created within specific parameters.
The design process can be separated into four categories; research and development (r&d) or brand building as we like to think of it, print and pattern, garment design or simulation and technical.
