I am an authentic designer with 9+ years of diverse experience in women’s and men’s apparel, seamlessly blending form and function for consumer-relevant designs in the sportswear, outerwear, and activewear markets. I use my in-depth experience in color, fabric, and product development combined with hands-on skills in patternmaking, prototyping, and testing to bring a premium but practical taste level to the product. I am skilled at managing internal and external teams through calendar-based design and development cycles. I am a thoughtful and empathetic leader dedicated to balancing company goals with vendor needs to create successful working relationships.
I am currently available for full-time, freelance, and contract positions. You can learn more about me and my work at http://samanthaaprea.com.
