During my first year as an assistant designer, I had ownership of SO Sleep, developing pajamas for Girls 7-16. It was a great learning experience, giving me the opportunity to grow into my role designing apparel after a summer immersed in home textiles. I researched trend, sketched, filled CADs, collaborated with cross functional partners like merchants, production specialists and artists. I also got to navigate the nuances of children’s sleepwear safety regulations and grow my illustration skills. Ultimately after two seasons of development, this section of SO Girl's business was exited from the total Kohl’s strategy and I took everything I learned with me as I was moved into new category within the Girls team!
