We have dedicated designers, with a wealth of knowledge and strengths across all areas of ladies wear, who can interpret your individual design requirements, or offer ideas from an array of development concepts.
We work into catwalk trends, producing seasonal design boards, working closely with the fabric sourcing team, to create trend driven fashion boards, for our customer selection.
By identifying the key silhouettes for the season we offer all our customers support with their brand direction.
We undertake frequent directional shopping expeditions to Paris, Milan, and London to identify key silhouette, trims and fabrications.
Our design team work collaboratively attending the fabric fairs Premiere Vision and Texworld, involved in selecting key fabric qualities to be made for customer focused projects and Karpelles own developments.
We think it a great advantage that our designers work closely with our pattern cutters to ensure the correct styling design and proportion of design samples.
We regularly hold customer focused design presentations here in our shown room in Manchester as well as traveling to attend design meetings with our customer presenting research, sketch ideas, and design samples working into the brands specific requests.
