Ocha and Garth: consultancy work

Cannon-Jones, Alan (2003) Ocha and Garth: consultancy work. UNSPECIFIED. [Fashion > Fashion Design (Menswear)]
Creators:Cannon-Jones, Alan

Ocha & Garth are an emerging company who design and manufacture high quality menswear. As technical consultant, Cannon-Jones' role included translating 20 paper design sketches into 3-D garments through the production of development patterns and prototype garments, advising on technical specifications, sizing, grading and production methods. His work is based on the authentic traditions of menswear injected with innovations in cut and technology which fit comfortably into the contemporary male wardrobe.

Cannon-Jones researched elements of tailored sportswear and multi-stitch technology and drew on his experience with companies such as Dockers and Dirk Bikkemberg, to achieve elaborate cutting which could be manufactured on an engineered basis for batch production by UK manufacturers. Unit cost targets had to be efficient to be within budget, which were achieved by sourcing and evaluating manufacturers to meet requirements.
