We are seeking a Women's Shoe Designer with a speciality in heels to join our rapidly growing team.
As the first shoe designer to join the company you will have the unique opportunity to design our very first ranges and launch our shoes category. You must therefore be capable of working without any technical assistance during the development process - taking only creative advice from other members of the team. You must also be supremely confident about the Oh Polly target demographic, current trends / celebrity fashion and be able to communicate to this target market through your designs.
You will work closely with the Creative Director during the initial stages, creating mood boards and conceptualising trends for the upcoming seasons. You will then work closely with our shoe suppliers and sample development teams to develop physical samples of approved concepts - problem solving issues and monitoring development at every stage. You will then be responsible for testing the quality, comfort and durability of each product to ensure its suitability for bulk production. You will do this while maintaining short turn around times of 45-60 days from concept to approved production.
There is an extremely rewarding career opportunity for the right candidate; with Oh Polly currently one of the fastest growing online fashion brands in the UK - your designs have the potential to be seen by and worn by hundreds of thousands of people globally including A-list celebrities.
We are willing to create a great remuneration package for the right candidate.
Junior (1-2 years): £19-22k
