Design

Design-IconAs a freelance fashion designer specializing in childrenswear and womenswear for top New York brands like Polo Ralph Lauren, Gap, and Nautica, I’ve created commercial collections which utilize brand-specific trends. I choose the season’s themes, fabrics, key shapes, print and patterns, and design details.

Then, I present an inspirational concept rig and a cohesive collection complete with sketches – done beautifully and with technical accuracy in Adobe Illustrator. After the approval of a collection, I write exceptionally detailed tech packs for sampling and later production. I oversee sampling with a team, approving and rejecting fabric and color submissions, attending fittings, and making revisions. I communicate with global factories, working together to create a beautiful and high quality collection.
