I understand that starting a new product line, brand or developing a new concept can be a difficult process to get started with. I offer consultation services to review the ideas or inspiration that you have. I also offer design services where I can create concept sketches of your products with design details pointed out. This serves as a platform for reviewing your concept and making sure we are all on the same page for moving forward with development services. My strong technical design background enables me to help you create design concepts that can be successfully developed, also keeping in mind target costs, price points and brand aesthetics.


I offer technical design and flat pattern making services. Your tech pack will contain all of the information necessary to construct your product and specifications for pattern making. I work with partner contractors to digitize, grade and make markers for your patterns when we are preparing for your production run.


I offer prototype and fit sample creation. I have multiple machines including a serger and coverstitch.


I offer production ready tech pack creation services as well as sourcing of factories for production. In some cases, I offer production management services. In production preparation I will make sure your tech pack includes all information necessary to complete a successful production, all materials are ordered / delivery dates, scheduling with factories, quality check of first samples created by factories, quality control of production and general advisory around the production process.
