Accessory Product Designer
M.Z. Berger & Co.
Aug 2011 - Present (9 years 10 months)
I am a product designer in charge of managing girl's licensed and generic watches. In addition to researching and presenting trends, benchmarking products on the market and designing original watch concepts and silhouettes, I communicate directly with our Hong Kong office and vendors overseas throughout the sampling process seeing my designs through from beginning to end. I work with other designers on my team and salespeople to create cohesive presentations for Walmart, Target, Macy's, Justice, Aldi's, along with many other retailers. I also help to manage newer designers - delegating tasks, approving samples to move into production and facilitating conversation with our Hong Kong office.
