My design process starts simply: Concepts that have been floating around in my mind are transformed into simple pencil sketches on paper.
When I’m developing a new collection, I’ll arrive at the New York production studio with piles of drafts, which we use as a reference to bring those sketches to life in the sampling process. Sometimes, one design might take 4-5 rounds of samples before it feels just right. Once finalized, we make a spec sheet for each style (kind of like a recipe card), so that we can recreate the designs consistently every time.
The creative process makes my heart race, and taps me into a crystal clear focus, like I’m hunting for ideal resolution and it’s in the studio, witnessing my designs come to life that I know I’ve hit the mark. It’s both maddening and invigorating all at once! Our talented production team is proud to handcraft each CMD piece directly from our studio straight to you.
