Having worked in the fashion industry for over 10 fabulous years, I have the extensive knowledge and the passion needed to be a part of your team as an apparel designer. Design for me is not just coming up with ideas but making sure the ideas work for the brand as well as making sure the ideas make sense and can be produced. I stem from a generation of designers where we were all responsible for not only the creative process but the technical process of garment development and manufacturing. I've sat in on every fitting and worked with every patternmaker for anything that I've made in order to ensure quality and functionality as well as making sure things are cost-friendly. I've worked with both factories overseas as well as domestically and hand in hand with all send out vendors. I believe I will be an asset and a positive addition to any design team and I hope it's yours! Please note my listed salary is always negotiable depending on the company as I know smaller companies may not have the means, that doesn't mean that I don't want to check out the opportunity that may be available as I love growing with companies both big and small.
