What does a typical day at work look like for you? 
7am-11am – In the Cutting Department either spreading/cutting fabric or making markers

(Editor’s note: markers are templates that the cutting machine uses to cut the fabric. When creating these markers we ensure the least amount of fabric offcuts possible).

11am – Head up to Licencing to finish up any editing/submitting completed work from the day before

12/12:30pm – Meet up with my work wife, Amy for lunch

1pm-3pm – Photographing swatches, samples or completed garments, editing them to make sure they look exactly as they do in real life and submitting the work to whichever license I’m working on!

Opening up the next fabric marker so we can start cutting!
