  • Full Time
  • The company produces luxury wool and cashmere knitwear for international brands, including Stefano Ricci, Smalto, Massimo Sforza, Kilgour, Raschini, Rossini and Paul Stuart.  Assisted Senior Pattern Cutter and learned all aspects of the pattern making process, including measuring, cutting, machining, assembly and finishing.  Consolidated my experience of working across men’s knitwear with fabrics such as cashmere, silk, wool, cotton and leather; this enabled me to improve my knowledge of fabric features e.g. washing and ironing  Acquired confidence and proficiency creating first pattern and in some cases, made amendments.  Intensively liaised with machinists for garment construction; this improved my interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate clearly and effective to ensure the smooth running of product development.  Created patterns by hand and also using computerised systems checking each pattern for accuracy and quality throughout the process to optimise costs and reduce fabric waste.  Demonstrated creativity, flexibility, adaptability and initiative at all times; for instance, I produced detailed technical guidelines to enable the team to quickly identify item features.  Worked with designers, pattern teams and seamstresses and cooperatively met tight deadlines.  Attended several CPD courses to improve my knowledge on Gerber.
