I am motivated, creative, organized and extremely design driven. I am excellent at spotting trends, breaking them down, and adapting them to fit the customer base of a specified line. I can identify the outliers/leaders of fashion, the early adapters and the followers, creating design briefs that outline products and categories that align with these models. I am proficient in CS5, Microsoft Office, hand rendering, concept board creation, design briefs, presenting concepts, and telling the story of a season. I find my strengths to be management of timelines, keeping focused on the direction at hand and keeping the atmosphere creative and energized.
I'm extremely visual and understand the need to back up a creative direction, with relevant tie-in to culture, fashion and the market.
