Hi, I'm Maryam, a 33 year old looking to do some technical design on side. After earning a BFA in Textile Design, and moving to New York, I have spent the last five years gaining experience in the various aspects of the design industry. Right now, I work in both the design and production side of the business, and have and in-depth knowledge of how the business functions. During my time at my current company, I have learned how to create detailed technical sketches/technical packages and work daily with factories in both the US and China from development to finished product. During the summer of 2014, I was sent to China to gain additional knowledge about the mills. My understanding of trends, what women want, and passion for production is strong.
