Industrial Design + Soft Goods
Combining industrial design process with sewing, fit and fabric.
I help businesses develop and produce their soft goods products.
Research + Development
An obsessive devotion to understanding user behavior, fabric properties, fit, form and movement drive the design process from project outset to production.
A voracious interest in fabric and product experience over a wide range of soft goods areas provides opportunities for unusual crossover solutions.
By maintaining a large library of notions, hardware and fabrics, many ideas can be tested at the outset of the project to find unique solutions to old problems.
3d Printed Fit Models
Fabric is a complicated beast, particularly where it interacts with the human body. 3d printed fit models help ensure excellent fit and accurate aesthetics.
Patternmaking + Grading
Anthropometric data, 3d printed fit models, and fabric knowledge come together to create an accurate, well-fitted pattern.
Prototypes for User Testing
Industrial machines and large library of notions, hardware, and fabrics allows high quality prototypes to be constructed for testing.
Tech Pack Creation
Giving manufacturing partners all the information they need in a detailed, well organized format is a critical part of the process.
Sourcing + Quality Control
Understanding fabric properties and testing, as well as quality control guidelines and procedures ensures continuing product quality.
