PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT COLLABORATION:

CANDIE'S AT

KOHL'S

This Product Development collaboration occurred with a company called JES Apparel, one of the design houses for Kohl's. We met with designers and project managers to discuss trends, customer demographic, and brand image. I was the designer and team leader for my group, Sweet tooth, designing for Candie's. After completing a six piece digital line board, JES Apparel chose two ensembles for me to construct and present to their design team.

 

The first ensemble is a two-piece dress and cardigan set. The dress is a modest length, with a triangular cut out at the sternum. There is a waistband in a metallic floral, because trend research suggested metallics and florals are trending. The neckline is square and also modest, making this dress suitable for young teens. 

The cardigan is a bell sleeve, open front sweater with a satin tie around the waist. The floral belt loops incorporate the metallic fabric into the cardigan, allowing it to match while also making it a versatile piece. The neckline and front opening are finished with a self binding, and the sleeves and cardigan hem are rolled and topstitched. 

This ensemble was completed during the second semester, junior year.
