Helen is available for work


I'm a creative, self-motivated and highly experienced designer with a wealth of technical knowledge. Passionate about sport, design, colour and rising to new challenges.

Best known for bringing ideas to life and developing designs that drive commercial success - developing garments that people can't help but buy. I’ve built up close working relationships with suppliers and manufacturers across the globe, which help smooth out product life-cycles.

I'm pragmatic, adaptable, highly efficient and used to working in time-pressured situations. Continually look for solutions to the problems that occur within critical path timelines.
