About me
I am a bag & accessories designer currently based in London and looking for new opportunities. I have experience designing for brands such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Cath Kidston, Ally Capellino and Orla Kiely, as well as being trained as a leather sample maker in a London factory working with brands such as Toast and YMC. My role at Cath Kidston was mid-senior level and very hands on - covering the whole design process from hand sketching, range planning, tech-packs, photoshop and illustrator etc. Regular communication & visits with suppliers/factories to overseeing samples and production for both core and mainline styles. Key success areas were travel and leather goods where I turned an underperforming range into a highly profitable success. I regularly attend trade shows like Premier Vision to source new fabrics and hardware. Having experience in both luxury and high street international brands, and having an understanding of both print and materials (working for Marc, Cath and Orla) allows this to be a great support tool when designing. I am extremely enthusiastic about product with a sense of enjoyment from creating and designing.
