Studio & Production Assistant

Ostwald Helgason

  • • I was given the responsability of sourcing fabrics and trims. • Handling e-commerce sales on Shopify and archiving stock using Excel. • Helped with quality control and liasing with manufacturers in Portugal. • I was responsible for marketing through social media platforms. • I helped to make the SS15 collection, cutting and hand sewing details. My time at Ostwald Helgason gave me insight into how a fashion company works, from buying, production and making to sales and customer service. I had experience in each of these sectors and fell confident that I can transfer these skills to a range of different jobs.
