Portfolio website

Senior Designer specialised in print and embroidery design for womenswear. I successfully co-founded a design company 6 years ago and proposed production in small quantities for creative businesses. This great experience has an end and I am now looking for a permanent contract in a RTW or embroidery house. My excellent interpersonal skills, my creative and technical skills and my sense of priorities can contribute to collection successes. International prestigious Luxury houses have already trusted me to create their print and embroidery artworks and developments.
