Current Location

London, UK

Neil is available for work

Throughout my career, I have worked on a diverse range of collections, from light jerseys to heavyweight
tweeds. My experience includes working on both men's and women's collections, with a focus on
modern body shapes and fit. I have had the opportunity to work with renowned brands such as Nike,
Adidas, and Carhartt, building style and garment archives for them.

In addition to my design skills, I have also developed new cutting/design/cloth processes and researched
vintage patterns to create heritage-based cloths. I have a strong understanding of fabric development
and sourcing, having worked with suppliers in the EU, USA, and Japan. Furthermore, I have managed
design teams both in Japan and the USA, showcasing my leadership abilities)
