I develop proprietary fabrics with performance features because technical textiles can be luxurious. I pay attention to detail: novelty zippers, graphics, and a perfect fit all add up to make a technical product fashionable.
Success is measured by how happy the customer is with the product, how it makes her feel, how it fits her and flatters her. I design for my customers.
From sketch to prototype, from prototype to market, I design for diverse markets, but always deliver new silhouettes, feminine style, and flattering fit.
I am an expert in color, print development, textiles, and garment construction. Tailored or unconstructed, fashion changes but the quality, fit, and integrity of a garment has always been my priority.
Fashion design is a tactile art. I love creating with textures: quilting, velour, faux suede, leather, and fur. Sourcing high quality and innovative fabrics is an ongoing passion.
Fashion design is about vision, identifying the market opportunities before the customer does, and translating trends into something commercial and timely. Trends repeat over time. Expertise never expires.
