Having directed small start-ups to major retailes PD&D departments, I have presented lines to executive management and buyers, recruited talent, source, negotiated costs and established long lasting contacts with creative sources and manufacturing.
With an adaptive design background — encompassing soft-lines for women, men, kids, accessories (hats, gloves, belts, socks, etc.), packaging (hang tags, header cards, stickers, hangers, etc.), graphics (embroideries, screen-prints, logos, textiles, etc.) and technical design (construction, specs – POMs & grading) , I am capable of interpreting trends from various product categories and translating them into non-conventional areas — safety mask hoodie to pet product.
Through this insight, I have been instrumental in increasing brand awareness, sales and overall business growth for the companies I have worked for.
With extensive knowledge in PLM and many years in the industry as an adaptive PD&D designer — creatively and technically designing soft-goods and hard-goods — I would be privileged to consult and/or design and develop trend correct, budget friendly and profit maximizing product for you / your company.
