Single garment designs taken from a client brief
Often, a client has a pretty good idea of the style of garment they’d like to produce, but may need assistance with putting the design together in a commercial way. In this case, Jamie can interpret ideas through client photos and descriptions to come up with a finished and highly producible design for the market intended.
