Full-Service Design Studio - Dev - Pattern - Cut / Sew / Trim
I've never quite been so-all-about what I do for work|life,it requires discipline sometimes to take a break from working [creating].Pattern-work, product development, specs dev, are, by far, the most satisfying aspects of the design process for me - akin to architecture - of the 3D human form.
