My strengths lay in my ability to manage a collection from concept to production. In addition to having a strong eye for trends, fabrics, colors and prints, I\'m also seasoned in managing a team of designers, which Ive thoroughly enjoyed.
I have a keen sensibility for individual fashion products as well as volume driven items, whilst understanding market needs and brand identity. My leadership skills have led me to establish strong partnerships with merchandising, sales and production, as well as with outside industry resources.
I strive for design innovation and the spirit of collaboration. In my positions as Senior designer and Design director I have been able to produce market leading collections with proven sales results.
