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.

Schaverien specialised in producing a quality mini with guaranteed windproof features.

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.
