I am a garment designer and graphic artist based in Vancouver, Canada.
I specialize in 3D virtual fashion, custom garment design, apparel technical design, trend and colour research, graphic and print design, as well as illustration.
3D Virtual Fashion
I design and create garments virtually by using CLO 3D. The process starts from an idea or sketch to 2D pattern drafting, to fit on the avatar, to develop tech packs for production, and then to the final presentation.
Custom Garment Design
Provide your inspirations and preferred style images. I will be able to create what you are dreaming of and make the garment custom fit to you for your special occasions.
Apparel Technical Design
I am experienced in creating technical specification packages for bulk production. This includes flat sketches with measurements, construction details, bill of materials, label/hangtag placement, grading rules/tolerances, and to meet predefined brand standards.
Trend & Colour Research
Through market research, I identify trends, fabric, colours, and construction techniques to create mood boards. I visualize ideas by hand or computer-aided designs; plan and develop ranges based on target customer's lifestyle and business strategies.
I am able to create original hand-painted or digital artwork based on trends or mood boards; modify provided original designs by adding or taking out print motifs, changing scales, changing to different colourways; create seamless repeat and separate colours for production.
I also do graphic design with particular interests in fashion branding, editorial design, and packaging.
I mainly uses pencil, gouache, watercolour, and watercolour pencil for my fashion illustration.
My illustration has clean lines with subtle attitude; sometimes sophisticated, sometimes quirky. I am inspired by Japanese Super-flat Art, the dreamy moment in Michael Gondry’s films, fashion editorials, and the Marion Cotillard’s Edith Piaf in movie “La Vie en Rose”.
