shinerhilldesign is a textile and fashion consultancy created to help brands get their product to market with ease and efficiency. I offer knowledgeable, customer driven, transparent product development. Drawing on fifteen years experience and working with an extensive network of industry experts I specialise in design, fabric sourcing and product development.
A textiles graduate of Central St.Martins, I have headed up the design teams in global manufacturers Esquel and Dewhirst. I have worked with companies including Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein Home, Tommy Hilfiger, Li & Fung, Ted Baker, Fred Perry, Burberry, Next, Marks and Spencer, Target Australia, Country Road and Thomas Pink in both New York and London.
In 2004 I realised a long held dream of moving to New York where I combined textile design and lecturing at the Fashion Institute of Technology, with a role at Pointcarré a leading textile design software company. Moving back to London in 2007 and focussing on menswear I progressed into a design management role while developing an awesomeness in product development and the manufacturing process.
I live, work and attempt to sleep in South East London with my partner, two young girls and crazy cat.
