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.

Cannon-Jones Current Research
My research and professional practice are interlinked within the areas of the "technical and technology" for the fashion industry. Working as a consultant and practitioner embraces both "hands on" and research opportunities. Attending exhibitions, fairs and conferences as either a delegate and/or a speaker on an international platform both informs my own knowledge and creates the opportunity to share information with my peers. As a member and Hon. General Secretary for the Federation of Clothing Designers & Executives I am involved in regular meetings and seminars with practitioners on an international platform. My professional practice embraces research as I work with International designers and companies. By being involved in the research for new projects I am then able to contribute to conferences and written works.
