Senior Womenswear Designer

Current Location

Bedford, UK

Naomi is available for work

I'm a Senior Designer with 7 years experience in multi product womenswear, working for brands such as Topshop, Miss Selfridge & new ASOS exclusive brands The Frolic & Annorlunda. I'm a creative yet commercial, highly experienced designer; passionate about building innovative & playful ranges.

Currently working on The Frolic & Annorlunda - I design with each customer in mind, ensuring each range is unique, cohesive and relevant to the target market. I work closely with the buying & merchandising team to build collections which are commercial, creative & exciting. With extensive multi-product knowledge, I have thoroughly enjoyed working on dresses, tops, bottoms, tailoring, swimwear- and have spent years building my knowledge on jersey design. Constantly analysing the market to identify micro & macro trends, I pull design inspiration from a range of sources, from vintage design research, to runway & streetstyle references - always looking to bring newness. I head weekly fit sessions, ensuring quality & fit exceed expectations - while mentoring the team in brand standards.

My current role has been an amazing opportunity to build and grow two exciting brands, each season I begin with initial sourcing & design research and ensure the design vision is consistently met at each stage - even though to ecommerce shoots and content.

I thrive while working in a fast-paced environment & enjoy working in collaborative way. I work closely with a number of internal stakeholders, as well as external suppliers based across Europe, Asia & North Africa - building strong relationships is key. I direct the in-house team with a genuine passion for motivating the people around me, with the aim of inspiring creativity and determination for great product.

I am looking for an exciting new challenge where I can push the boundaries within trend led fashion, and learn something new along the way.

I'd love to send you some examples of my work, and chat further about the role!
