Textile Designer - Luxury Dog Apparel
We're working on a start-up dog apparel retailer brand.
As part of this project, we would like to begin working on an internal brand, focused initially on a clothing range of coats (rain and warmth) for dogs that are design-led with strong eco-friendly and sustainable credentials.
The branding project is almost complete and will set the stage for the clothing. It's an elevated, classic design direction with items retailing between €50-€100. This will need to come through in the material selection and the pattern designs.
The product is to be designed and made in Portugal, where the business is based.
We're looking for someone with expertise in a space we know very little about. We are e-commerce, branding and marketing experts, so there will be plenty of guidance around the audience, targeting, branding, photography, positioning and packaging. Still, we're looking for your guidance on the development process for a textile product. Ideally, you can support and advise (loosely on IP) and the development process, sketch/design & pattern making. You will also support the conversations and relationships with the chosen production facilities, also based in Portugal.
This is a really exciting field; luxury pet products are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the eCommerce pet category. The individual who comes on board will be a pivotal team member, helping launch a new product with ample opportunity to take a central role as this project blossoms into a growing and valuable brand.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
