After two years designing Boy’s product, I was promoted to Senior Designer of Men’s Denim, Swim, Vintage and Paratroop Bottoms. I was able to grow the business 180% in my first season. It was an amazing experience, and I worked alongside some of the best teammates I’ve encountered in my career. I learned how to brand build at AnF, and loved every moment of it. I drove my categories, concept through completion and traveled seven months out of the year, doing development. I think I’ve spent more time in Asia, than in the U.S. in my adult life.
AnF is where I grew my skill-set in wash and fabric development. I worked hands on in laundries and with mill’s, across the world. Experience became my best teacher.
