Our Quality Assurance department plays a key role in the development of our collections. Our Garment Technicians translate the ideas of Design and Buying and guarantee a consistent and proper fit. They give technical advice on what is / is not possible with respect to fabric, and model construction. They occasionally make and grade (basic) patterns and monitor our own basic patterns. An internship in this department will give you the change to assist our Garment technicians.
WE believe in people and togetherness. Just like our name implies, WE believe life is always lived best when shared and experienced together. WE believe in our heritage. From humble origins as Amsterdam merchants, WE embrace change and move with the times, driven by our entrepreneurial spirit. Fueled by our energy and optimistic outlook, WE believe in the unity of one world where every one tunes in and connects to make truly great things happen.
