Apparel Design & Development Pro

Daniela Caine

I grew up in the Apparel Industry working for global powerhouses Adidas, Nike and Columbia Sportswear. After leaving the corporate world I worked as design consultant and most recently as partner of a global design and sourcing agency. Seeing the struggle apparel developers and engineers go through maintaining spread sheets to stay on top of the creation process, I set out to harness the power of technology and developed a simple, intuitive and affordable product creation management app.
