Contracted each season to provide Design Concept Development, colour palettes and print designs for a multi-brand producer. The final report including colourways, handle and umbrella design to be interpreted by their China producers.
Sol Schaverien & Sons were the most delightful clients to work with during my time freelancing in London. Each season I would work with Tracey White, the brand manager, and we would build the new colour palette and agree the ‘stories’ to be developed into new product.
In addition, new technologies in handle fabrication and frame development were considered and often included each season. A favourite part of each season was working with local textile designers to develop coordinated print ranges.
