More Information

As a seasoned Senior Apparel Designer, I drive commercial success for brands through the creation of products that seamlessly integrate with the brand's aesthetic and strongly resonate with target markets. Leveraging extensive experience in the apparel industry, I combine technical proficiency with a flair for creativity and innovation. My approach is founded on a rich understanding of garment construction, materials, and industry trends, ensuring that each design not only meets the highest standards of quality but also captivates consumers and enhances the brand's market standing.

My comprehensive understanding of the design umbrella encompasses a proven track record in building seasonal collections, launching new products and private label brands, and revitalizing existing in-house brands. I specialize in strategic design leadership, bringing vision to material selection, color stories, and styling details. My expertise spans end-to-end design management, from visual presentations to tech packs, ensuring design integrity. I excel in cross-functional collaboration, driving innovation, and anticipating production issues.

SELECTED ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
- Tripled sales after taking over the design process at Haus of Grey. Initiated a strategic design shift.
- Consistently remained 3 months ahead of the target timeline for all seasonal collections.
- Revolutionized the fit process within Haus of Grey, reducing fittings from 4+ to a streamlined one-step process.
- Expanded product placement and retail footprint from one to two Pebble Beach stores.
- Generated 2K+ sales and boosted visibility by conceptualizing a special project to meet a client's unique request.

I bring a genuine passion for the apparel industry, constantly seeking opportunities to expand my knowledge and skills. As a collaborative team player, I exhibit excellence across diverse product categories, showcasing adaptability and a broad skill set.
