FASHION DESIGNER AT C&A (Vilvoorde, Belgium)
Since 2/September/2013 until 20/May/2016
C&A is an international chain of Fashion Retail clothing stores, with its European head-offices in Belgium and Germany, and stores all over the world. In the 19th century, C&A revolutionized the Fashion Industry, creating a new market of vast potential by offering affordable fashion. It is also the world's largest supplier of organically grown cotton clothes.
Since September 2013, I've been working in the Baby Department, developing ranges for Baby-Girl and also some ranges for Baby-Boy and Newborn. I started as an Assistant, helping the Design Team in different tasks, and I've been promoted to Designer in June/2015, focusing now on the Baby-Girl collections only.
Our creative process starts with visits to International Fashion Fairs and Competition Shopping to London, Paris, Barcelona (and more). Through our trips and by analysing Trend Books and websites, we prepare our moodboards, colours and fabrics to start building our collections. Designing garment shapes and placement prints, jacquards and all-over prints, are part of my tasks, reporting every collection to the Fashion Coordinator and the Buying Team.
I've worked on collections for different seasons: Fall-Winter 2014/15, Spring-Summer 2015, Fall-Winter 2015/16, Spring-Summer 2016, Fall-Winter 2016/17 and Spring-Summer 2017.
