Ideation

Yes I love helping designers to refine their ideas! I have worked for companies of numerous sizes from start-ups to global brands. I worked in the product development division of multiple companies including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Paper Denim & Cloth, VPL and Cynthia Steffe to name a few. As well, I have operated at a Design Director level where I was responsible for overseeing the product development and technical design of collections season upon season. Product refinement requires continual self-education; study of the market; awareness; and being in tune with the intricate balance and harmony that makes a garment perfectly executed to meet a designer's vision. These are skills and traits that I continually hone upon and believe will be assets to my clients.

Pattern-Making

In my studies at Parsons, one of my core interests and focus was in advanced pattern making, draping and bespoke tailoring. I have utilized my pattern making skills to develop patterns for clients such as Rachel Zoe Collection, NSLT by R13, M.Martin (a subsidiary of Paper Denim & Cloth), Sleepy Jones and Arjuna.Ag to name a few. My strengths are in Women's Sportswear and RTW, and cover both woven and knit garments.
