Job Description

Job Title: Fashion Designer (Clothing/Textiles)
Location: Leeds
Salary: £17,000 - £20,000

The Opportunity
Do you have a flair for creative design? Do you think outside the box and make your garments stand out from the crowd?

If you answered Yes! we have the perfect job for you. Working for the UK's leading Fancy-Dress Costume Design Company, you will have the opportunity to not only play around with fun exciting designs on a daily basis but progress your career like many of the Senior Costume and Textiles Designers who have developed through the company. Wake up excited to come into work and take on new and inspiring projects.

The Role
As Designer you will act as an essential cog in the Creative Team's mechanism, creating new imaginative designs and managing existing ranges for the companies brand and private label accounts. Developing innovative and fun ranges, whilst building strong relationship's by listening to their needs and putting your own creative spin on the designs.

As part of your role you will be expected to keep your figure on the pulse, watching all the newest movies and music videos from Lady Gaga's red sequined number at The Super Bowl to Ryan Reynold's spandex morph suit in Deadpool. You never know what you might be making next!

We are not looking for somebody who colour's inside the lines but somebody who is pushing designs to their limits. This role will keep you on your toes and you will be busy but who wants to sit around watching the clock? You will be expected to manage the development of your own ranges from concept stage, sampling and the presentation process for each of your customers, ensuring all deadlines are met. You will work closely with the Account Managers and the Technical teams, demonstrating strong product knowledge, fabric compositions, printing techniques and garment construction, enabling you to design within budget and to customers testing requirements.

Alongside the in-house training you receive when you start you will have tons of hands on experience and the support of the company will dramatically increase your professional skill set.

The Candidate
We aren't looking for a Designer, we are looking for a rule breaker, the James Dean of the fashion world. You will need to be the sort of person who thrives working in a creative, highly charged and positive atmosphere. Somebody with focus when lots going on around you.

Somebody with a degree in something textiles or fashion based would be great but if you think you still have the skills in clothing design or product development, please don't hesitate to apply. It's important to have experience using CAD in order to create Spec Packs and Technical Illustrations. To understand garment construction, have an eye for patterns and fabrics so you can hit the ground running when you start.

The Company
The Creative Team is made up of 10 Designers of all levels from Graduate to Senior. The Design Manager you would be working with is Alison, a lovely lady with a background in underwear design. Alison is keen to bring somebody in who will not only fit in with the positive and creative atmosphere they have already but will bring with them their own spark.
