Sylvie de Gil, Fashion Visionary - Page 2
Describe the general process you go through to design and realize a piece of clothing.
Young designers send me their designs. I need to ask them a lot of questions so I can understand exactly what they need. After, we make the pattern with all the adjustments and the first sample. We can duplicate for marketing, production and of course, if the Designer would like as well, we market the product with a strong marketing campaign with social media, press and more.
What skills are required to be a successful fashion designer?
Original, talent, and most important find really the right people working with you. PEOPLE TAKING TIME TO LISTEN YOUR PROJECTS, YOUR IDEAS, YOUR NEEDS, confidence and collaboration.
What do you mean by marketing coach?
I communicate a lot with the Designer. I work with him or her several times a week. I encourage, via mandatory weekly session by Skype or in person, to follow the projects and starting from the beginning of the project. We interpret designs, prepare logos, labels, marketing, I SUPPORT him or her along the project with information, giving hope and most important...TO BELIEVE IN THEIR PROJECT AND TALENT.
