    Working with the womenswear team at Jasper Conran as a Design Assistant for their Mainline Womenswear Collections, my role was to help the Design Team in all areas of Production. Through assisting the team in weekly fittings and considering a luxury yet everyday client, liaising with suppliers to ensure minimums and lead times were in line with our critical path. As well as carrying out research and CADS in reaction to design meetings, quality control and general studio tasks such as arranging castings, updating and maintaining style boards and purchase orders. Through this I have gained insight into the running of a luxury ready to wear brand in terms of both production and design.
