I am Andrea, a Fashion Designer with more than 10 years of experience working both as a supplier but also for Fashion Brands. I am an expert in Jersey knit and I also have a high knowledge of the Design and Production process in the Fashion and Apparel Industry, as well as worldwide suppliers.
Currently, I am working as a Design Manager for a multinational supplier in its Barcelona offices, where I am in charge of guiding and advising both England and China Design teams in order to get the most suitable collections for our Spanish customers, supervising Womenswear, Menswear and Boys collections.
I consider myself as a highly capable professional of managing high numbers of references with rapidity and effectiveness, coordinating collections and adapting ideas and trends for each client as a supplier. During my stage at Cortefiel, I increased the number of styles in my department in more than 50%, I also achieved to be the department which got the highest budget and, in terms of design, I managed to diversify the collection in terms of fabrics, shapes and colors.
I love team-working, learning from colleagues and managers, communicating effectively and sharing ideas, as I completely agree that team-working always adds up. I would describe myself as a cheerful person, with a high degree of adaptation and empathy. I also consider myself as a good communicator, decisive and productive.
I enjoy traveling and working on multicultural environments, as I have been learning a lot from my colleagues in China, Bangladesh and India. I have an Advanced level of English with perfect communication skills on discussions using technical terms and on giving fruitful comments concerning samples and workmanship details.
I am highly motivated to find professional experiences which allow me to broaden my horizons, to travel, to learn and keep on growing as a professional as well as contribute with the experience I have been achieving during my career.
