I am currently working for French Connection as a Production Assistant for Menswear, which I joined after finishing my University Degree studying BA (Hons) Fashion Promotion & Imaging in June 2015 and was promoted after 1 year at the company. Whilst working at French Connection I have been a part of the Menswear department ensuring the development of the collections. I communicate to various departments to ensure processes are being kept to meet the French Connection standards and to the critical path. I work with numerous seasons so I have to be able to juggle multiple tasks at one time and solve problems quickly and proficiently to ensure there are no delays. I am involved in the development of jersey and sweats ensuring all teams are on target without complications on a day-to-day basis which I have to be in frequent contact with our Country Offices based in India, Turkey and China and have to negotiate where necessary on prices whether that's for surcharges or discounts within the season. I believe working for French Connection has given me the experience, skills, and determination to help me shape my future progression within the Creative industry. Working in a Production environment has given me a chance to understand how a business works and how a bigger company comes together as a team to ensure the success of the business. Whilst at University I had specialised within the Marketing element of Fashion Promotion & Imaging for two years and took my third year to explore my creative skills. I researched and developed into the process of graphics and imaging to complete my project of understanding how people can hold misconceptions of a brand by changing advertising. How we establish between a luxury and non-luxury brand through type and structure. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to take the opportunity to explore new skills, to learn and to understand things from a new perspective. I have built my knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator as well as my knowledge of Microsoft Office, Excel and PowerPoint.
