Products

Product Development Management

Product development begins with concepts, inspiration and ideas. These are transformed into physical prototypes following a streamlined process of technical design, drafting and sample construction. Prototypes are revised until they are approved for production and manufacturing.

Events

Event Coordination and Management

Event management is the preparation and execution of all factors necessary to create an effective experience for guests and participants. Important factors like quality vendors, proper flow and budgeting are taken into account to prepare a detailed plan for success.

Consult

Fashion Industry Consultation

There are many moving parts to product development in the fashion industry. Understanding the responsibilities of each party or team member in the process helps to create more efficient and prosperous work flow. Knowing what others need to do their work benefits the big picture. Additionally, designs and ideas must be interpreted into executable plans for product development as well as product must be managed with set expectations.

Testimonials

Jessica is an extremely hard working individual with a wealth of knowledge she brings from her experience in the corporate world as well as working with individual clients. She is in tune with the apparel and sewn products market. She does her research, and tailors the research for the job at hand, and can advise clients on the best way to put together their product so it's ready for market. Jessica's technical design background, as well as her strong work ethic make her a solid addition to any product development team. I highly recommend working with Jessica.

Karin Tsang, Freelance Technical Designer, Silk Road Consultants Inc.

Jessica came into Crescendo as a consultant to help with some ongoing production challenges. I learned why we were having so many problems and decided that Jessica had a skill set in Technical Design and Production Management that was greatly lacking in my Fashion Designer. Jessica is such a conscientious worker and takes responsibility and ownership for the the tasks assigned to her. She inherited a big mess and worked tirelessly to correct it and create systems so that we would be in a better position in the future. She is great at anticipating problems and proposing solutions. Along with being extremely detail oriented, she is an excellent researcher. Jessica's passion for excellence and fashion industry expertise would make her a great addition to any team.

Kathryn McKechnie, Owner, Crescendo Apparel

Jessica consulted and guided our product launch from post-design phase through final fittings and production, bringing our designer's work to life and serving as a guide throughout each phase of the project. She worked closely with Fibre's Creative Director on refining our products and improving construction, durability and fit while keeping an eye to costs while retaining the spirit and impact of our designs. Her interaction with and management of the manufacturers throughout the production was equally as valuable helping us to bring our products to market through a very tight timeline. Jess is a consummate professional whose positive energy, confidence, creative input and strong management of vendors during a very busy and challenging time was key to our success. Fibre Athletics

Jess has been awesome to work with while developing AMMO Athletic. She's been a trusted hand with our tech design (our tech pack was widely commended by factories), and has worked with us through a tricky factory situation. Any designers looking for an experienced pro would be well served with Jess' advice. AMMO Athletic
