“Creativity knows no borders”
As a versatile and rounded creative with years of experience in the field of fashion, illustration and graphic design, I have developed a natural approach to link and assemble the most fundamental elements of each field. The key to my work is creating high-quality, sustainable designs providing personal affiliation and vivid appearance. A natural incorporation of the latest trends and mindsets with the purpose of creating a recognizable identity and a lasting vision together.
I studied fashion design at Artez the institute of the Arts in Arnhem, The Netherlands. During my education, I completed an internship as the print designer of Preen by Thornton Bregazzi in London. Since the first of January 2017 I have been working as a designer at women's tailoring brand Suistudio, the sister brand of Suitsupply. My responsibilities entail the development and design of the collections each season, including but not limited to;
-Translating the current trends into garments and collections while keeping the brand identity and commercial aspects in mind;
-Making sketches and technical illustrations for the new collections;
-Creating Tech Packs, including instructions, constructions, illustrations, measurements and detailing;
-Organizing, leading and communicating fittings to achieve the perfect fit, including factory visits in China and Macedonia;
-Ensuring a consistent fit and making sure all garments produced meet a certain standard by performing quality controls, measuring garments and observing grade rules and tolerances;
-Working with the photo studio to ensure a realistic representation of all garments;
-Creating a system for the factories to check the quality and durability of fabrics;
-Creating customer feedback questionnaires to get an insight of the customers’ demands and wishes.
GRAPHIC DESIGN, BRAND IDENTITY AND ILLUSTRATION
After graduating, I started my creative bureau in the field of fashion, illustration, branding and graphic design. I worked together with various companies and individuals where I designed fashion collections, created patterns for fabrics and established various corporate identity's. During this time I joined multiple agencies and expanded my network of clients and other creatives.
