Beauty Product Development
Just One LLC expanded from their sportswear business to beauty and selected me to spearhead the development of two brands, Cai Cosmetics and Taste the Tropics. My position included market research and in-depth work with the sales team to develop a collection to suit the needs of their existing wholesale accounts.
Cai Cosmetics & Taste the Tropics
As Head of Product Development and the sole Designer, I worked directly with overseas factories to develop high-quality cosmetics for an affordable, fast-fashion price-point. I designed all packaging (tubes, palettes, outer cartons, & PDQ displays) for more than 30 SKUs.
I worked with our internal production team, sales team, and several wholesale accounts to bring the product from testing phase to delivery.
Apparel Product Development
Just One LLC is a maker of affordable, fast-fashion sportswear in the junior, missy, and plus-size demographics. This role integrated CAD drawings for product development, textile print design, fit adjustments alongside the Technical Designer, & managing production through all stages of sampling.
Designer : Textiles & Apparel
I worked on a team of 4-6 designers to produce large quantities of product in a variety of fast-fashion sportswear categories. I was considered the team leader who reported directly to the Head of Design and helped to disperse projects and manage timelines as required by our sales and wholesale teams.
In addition to leading the team workload, I managed a rotation of 10-15 SKUs through the development and production process. This regularly included textile print development, tech pack development, sampling, communicating with the overseas factories, & final Top of Production stage.
