Behind BodyAware: Tess, the Designer!
Posted on 21 July 2016
As a creator of fine underwear designs, what sets us apart from the competition is the incredible attention to detail. From our talented designers, experienced stitchers, and highly specialized machines, the dedication to well-constructed garments and their personal touch makes all the difference.
At BodyAware, we count ourselves lucky to work with talented professionals that make such beautiful, high quality products.
And these designs all start with Tess, our head designer! Here's what a day in her life at Bodyaware looks like.
First, she molds cut-outs into a rough design, and then uses a magical machine called a digitizer to transfer the digital templates of these cutouts to her computer.
Then, she digitally fine-tunes the designs, turning the rough shape into a pattern that looks much more like underwear.
From there, she creates a tech-pack, which gives more detail on how the garment should look for the front and back. This is what she sends off to our stitchers so they know what they have to do to craft the garment.
Tess then prints the markers, which are the final "stencils" for the underwear designs which is what the stitchers use to cut out the right amount of fabric to be sewn into your beautifully constructed undies!
And in between all of the hard design work that she does, she's also sending out underwear samples to other manufacturers for collaborative purposes, helps the stitchers in the warehouse, helps pack some of the underwear for shipping, and even comes with us on photo shoots! She just does it all!
