ASSISTANT DESIGNER   June 2019-June 2020

The Misook brand under Toula Corporation offered Missy knit and woven wardrobe pieces with sophisticated novelty details that suit professional workplaces and occasions. On their design team, I was heavily involved in each step of the design process, such as providing color and design research, detailed CADs on Photoshop and Illustrator, tech packs, and fitting samples before overseas production in China. While designing for Misook, I acquired knowledge of various stitch techniques, gauges, and yarns to create fully fashioned knits, along with experience in intarsia, jacquard, print on knit, and digitally printed wovens. Merchant plans were created to organize initial designs to make sure there were balanced numbers of styles appropriate for the work place or an occasion and appealing to specific buyers, who were from Saks, Neiman Marcus, Dillard's, Bloomingdale's, and specialty boutiques.
