I cannot take all the credit for Urban Prima - I have an amazing team of ladies behind me that back me all the way and help turn my ideas into a reality.
Let me introduce some of my Prima ladies:
I have Amanda who is the production manager and who has been working in the family companies for just over eight years. She knows everything about sewing - especially in stretch which we love. She has a keen background in design and aced all her fashion design classes back all those years ago.
Amanda is backed up with Sharon, who is the main production assistant with a flair for design and new techniques. Sharon like Amanda has a big background in sewing and loves the costuming world as well as fashion.
We also have Tracey who joins our talented team of sewers and production, she has been part of our family business for close to ten years! She brings so much knowledge having sewn for a variety of different companies over the years. Experience and knowledge in this industry are just paramount!
Head of patterning is Kerry (also known as mum), who without a doubt has the most experience in stretch pattern making that I have come across. She can whip up something easily just from drawing pattern by eye and grading manually. She helps the team remotely while she travels around the globe.
We also have really talented work experience and interns who make up the team and are with us from our local TAFE and Queensland University. Adding to these amazing ladies, we have Felicity head of graphics and marketing, making a nice team of ten and growing weekly!
The most important thing I can say is "We made your clothes"! We love it and we have so much fun working together creating something beautiful for you to wear.
I believe that when you receive your garment you will see that it has been made by people with love and devotion for what they are doing and the brand they are sewing for. We are all Urban Prima and we live and work with the great values that stand behind my brand.
