I graduated in 2009 with a four year Bachelor's of Science degree in Apparel Design from Oregon State University and have six years experience in the London fashion industry. I have worked in the women's, children’s, and men's wear industries and with a variety of fabrics, including jersey, wovens, denim, and knitwear. My experience includes creating sketches on Illustrator, managing fit sessions, grading measurements on tech packs, and the basics of patternmaking.
I communicate daily with designers and factories to ensure the technical aspects of the designs are met. When issues arise, I have the skills to find feasible solutions to these problems. I have the ability to stay focused when working under pressure and to meet tight deadlines to help keep production on schedule. I am highly organized and have a strong attention for detail.
