I love all things fashion from daily market insights and knowledge to creation, manufacture, runway, editorial to retail all resonate my interest. Being confident and highly motivated, a supportive and communicative management team leader with the ability to adapt and learn. Strategic thinking for product and manufacturing production needs, resourcing, target costing, price negotiation, favourable payment terms, critical path planning and problem solving. I have a keen focus on accurate budget planning enabling strong profitable growth.
