I work closely with the head designer of the Kids Division in the development of licensed apparel from concept through production.
My 2 specialized skills are flat sketches on Adobe Illustrator and creating BOMs for tech pack. I am also relied on for submitting sketches & pattern requests to the patternmaker; as well as work alongside cross-functional departments to assist in the progress of the sample development and production process.
In addition, I research new fashion trends in local markets to create new product lines for development.
