The design team has done their homework. All of the relevant information and tools have been gathered; now is the time to bring it all together.

By taking the materials and details they have created the designer can integrate them into the shapes and pieces that have become important throughout the process. Sketches take on new life as they are drawn with intention.

Silhouettes become inviting as the toile process starts and fabrics are given a voice. Colors are finalized and fittings begin.

The Process becomes an obsession as each individual on the team creates the parts of a whole. It's here that artistic expression takes a backseat to design; for to design is to approach a project with intention and creative solutions to the problem at hand.

 Through this process of creatively answering the questions imposed by the lifestyle of the consumer; the intent of Design is revealed.

The Devil is in
the details.

 

As each piece of the puzzle finds it's home; the culmination of Design takes place.

It's here we find the designer pulling the various details of the collection into focus. Precise fittings take place and meticulous samples are sewn. It's through the lens of design that we start to zoom in on the minutiae. All the while never forgetting the bigger picture that the team is putting together.

Coordinating with design counterparts and having a strong, independent team where each member is comfortable in and excited by their role further amplifies the human intent of the design process.

This is where trust is born. Through intense understandings of design intent and clear, natural communication; issues that take place over the course of a collection can be artfully evaded if ever taking place at all.

Human minded problems.
Human minded process.
Human minded solutions.

Design is more than just a sketch; and this is where the process flourishes. The collection is realized and ready to move on to the final stage.
