We are currently looking to fill a Designer level position that will focus on Women’s Wovens Product. You must be passionate, enthusiastic, and rigorous, with an obsessive eye for detail. This role will be working closely with the whole team to ensure that the collections focus on sustainable, quality garments with a strong fashion statement.

You will bring your designs to life by reviewing samples, attending fittings, and collaborating with product development, merchandising, and production teams. 

Our design aesthetic is easy, modern and clean; less is more. Our vision is to create perfect and timeless wardrobe pieces for every woman (suiting, clean silk blouse, trench...). We rely on a maniacal editing process to get these essential pieces just right, from fabric to fit, to drape and construction.

The ideal candidate graduated from a competitive design school and has extensive experience working with highly respected fashion brands.

Your day-to-day:

  • Report to and support the Creative Director in the creation of women’s woven product
  • Initiate designs beginning with thorough research and inspirational images
  • Hand sketch initial ideas, and computer sketch final ideas
  • Work closely with the technical design and product development teams to communicate the vision behind the products, ensuring that all products created achieve the desired margin targets
  • Attend and participate in weekly fittings
  • Stay up to date with current trends, innovations and technologies as well as go above and beyond to create and source new concepts.
  • Handling the development of each garment before handing over to Production, working closely with the Product Development team, both in London and Italy, and occasionally with Pattern Cutters and Machinists in-house.
  • Developing and creating new best sellers.
  • Research and organising archive, ensuring a clear working environment in the design studio at all times.
  • Travel when needed to support the business.
  •  

We’d love to hear from you if you have:

  • 6+ years of Women’s Woven experience,  (Outerwear, Tailoring, and Bottoms experience an advantage)
  • Bachelor's degree from top Fashion Design program
  • High creativity with an innate sense of trend
