Andrea Forist


I have a 10+ year background in the Outdoor & Active fashion industry where I've lent my design expertise to major global brands such as Nike, Adidas Originals and Burton Snowboards. I have managed entire collections and design teams, worked on-site with overseas factories, and personally met with and designed for a wide range of high profile clients including celebrities and pro-athletes (Singer Gwen Stefani, NBA all star Chris Paul and women's snowboarding Olympic gold medalist Kelly Clark to name a few).

My personal design aesthetic & ethos is colorful, irreverent, vibrant, feminist, positive, whimsical, inclusive, and environmentally conscious. I have applied this filter to my extensive work experience in Apparel Design while incorporating appropriate trends and staying brand-relevant.

I am interested in collaborative work opportunities with like-minded people and companies who genuinely care about how they impact the world around them (socially & environmentally) and that understand and embrace the freedom and flexibility necessary for creativity to flourish (i.e. not confined to an office).

I am currently available for freelance / remote / part-time / or project-based opportunities.
