experience & expertise
Working for a design agency for years allowed me not only to design and work on clothing but also on the designs of their textiles. I've been always looking for ways to expand my knowledge so there was a point when I dove really deep into the surface pattern design field. I have taken countless courses and classes on the subject, on different types of designs, on creating collections; I have been practicing and improving my technique more and more. In the last years I have been making collections for a textile studio specialized in women apparel as well as for my catalog, where at the moment you can find more than a hundred patterns available for fashion, home decor, etc. In fact, three of those collections are going to be launched soon as quilting fabrics in the United States.
adding value to product
Having a custom collection for your products can only add more value to them. They can achieve a more cohesive overall look and will enrich your customer's experience by far. It's all about stepping up the game and offer something unique!
storytelling through patterns
A custom pattern collection is the perfect way to tell your story, to send a message, provoke a certain feeling. We can either work with your concept and brief or we can create one together, according to the trends or your wishes. We can also work with your colors or create a new color palette together. Even if I have my own style, I can recreate certain drawing techniques to enhance your message.
Coming from the field of fashion design, I have not only all the technical knowledge about printing, the techniques, the uses, but through the different courses I have done, I am able to design the different types of pattern and avoid the "typical mistakes" when making them. In addition, I can prepare the files to go directly to production and work with the right color system.
As I child, I grew up among Pantone catalogues and fabric swatches, which were brought home by my dad (he worked in the textile industry for more than 40 years). I loved visiting him at work and walking through those giants buckets with thousands of colors while covering my ears from the noise of the printing machines. So it's no surprise that creating beautiful patterns became my passion! I get to spend my days drawing, painting, digitizing and creating interesting patterns for my clients!
Each client and project is unique and has their articular needs.
