Behind the Scenes: The Product Specialist [On the Runway]
Pattern maker and production manager Cindy Ferrara: "In the beginning, I would bring mannequins in my duffle bag so the sewers in the China factory had a western figure to work with. Again, it was this sense of origami, that’s how they approached pattern-making. It was the kimono heritage. The idea of rounding and shaping was foreign to them.
