Apparel Design / Development

I have worked as a Apparel Designer and Developer for over eight years. For six of those years I worked at Columbia Sportswear one of the leading Outerwear companies in the Industry. While there I had the opportunity to work on Baselayer, Technical Outerwear and everything in-between. Some of my strengths include creating concepts, technical sketches, tech packs, BOMs, color theory, and spec sheets. Over the years I have been able to develop my creative side along with my technical skills which lends my talents to various projects.

This was a graphics project I did for Straight Down Clothing for their PGA show booth.  I made these technical sketches in Illustrator to look like they are chalkboard drawings.

Kathryn was terrific! She understood the brief right from the start, and her passion for the industry was very evident. The result was a great visualisation of the design brief, and one I am really happy with. If you have a fashion design project, I can highly recommend Kathryn's talent and experience.
