Senior Garment Technologist

About The company...

My client launched in London, it set out to push the boundaries and embrace a more creative approach to childrenswear. My client always challenged traditional, limited perceptions of what children should wear, exploring a design aesthetic that is modern, considered, playful and always a little unexpected. Each item is designed with passion and the utmost attention of detail: the garment silhouette, the cut, the fit, just the right sort of lining or even buttons are all highly considered. Quality is never compromised and we constantly strive for excellence. Recently, the brand expanded into womenswear. You do not have to have childrenswear experience.
