TITLE: Collaboration with Mayamiko


Fashion Design with Garment Technology graduate seeking employment in garment technology & product development in the North West.
I designed and produced a capsule collection for an ethical fashion brand based in Malawi, Africa. I analysed and managed the critical path during all production stages. I created and developed technical drawings into finished garments, from translating the initial designs to flat pattern cutting and construction of seal and production samples. I attended two fit sessions with the founder and adapted the patterns as necessary, regarding aesthetic, functionality and fit. I graded both manually and digitally, from a UK size 8-16, then drafted lay plans, detailed technical packs and specification charts using Gerber and Illustrator. The collection is made from 100% cotton fabric in traditional African prints, I identified potential textile testing opportunities and ensured that each garment complied with EU regulations. These designs will be put into production and sold online in summer 2017.
