“I’ve worked with Abigail for almost a year and am so pleased to have her on our team. She has not only helped us design amazing garments that fit our design ethos perfectly and created excellent patterns but she is also knowledgeable about the sustainability of each design and the impact of different textiles, trimmings and accessories. Abigail’s creative mind and experience in not only design but also production has been a valuable asset in the work we do. Not only do we love her designs – we have also received compliments from our manufacturer on the patterns she has made as they are clear and easy to follow. Alongside her design and production skills, Abigail is also very friendly, easy to communicate with and always timely. I’d highly recommend Abigail to anyone who’s looking for brilliant execution and a true creative mind.” Emilia
