CHARLOTTE BOURKE

 

CREATIVE DIRECTOR 

As a seasoned designer I have extensive experience within the apparel & graphic design industry. 

Via in depth trend research, hand sketching, CAD development, technical pattern cutting and my 3D rendering skills, I have progressed through my career designing for men’s, women’s and kidswear for an array of projects and brands. 

As a University of Salford (Manchester, UK) graduate, showcasing at London Fashion week in 2010, I began my career designing for Hussein Chalayan's Puma line. This insight into fashionable sportswear lead to gaining the Adidas role working on the London 2012 Olympic Games. As the experience with the games came to an end, the love of ath-leisure blossomed and I continued to design for the brand within the Training department, based at their HQ in Germany. Designing Men's and Women's training wear and supporting graphic tee range. 

Missing home, I moved back to Manchester, as lead designer for New Balance's lifestyle apparel range. This role progressed into being promoted to Senior designer within the New Balance Football department. I designed performance kit and trainingwear for the brands top flight afiliate football clubs such as Liverpool F.C, Celtic F.C, F.C Porto, and many more. 

 

Sensing a gap within the market I decided to build my own design agency; CHABOU Create delivers bespoke concept to design packages, designed to the clients needs and specifications. I have built a team with diversity in mind, each designer specialising in various areas of design and softwares. 

Fashion, performance sportswear and lifestyle apparel ranges are our strengths. Portraying your design brief in either 2D factory approved techpacks or 3D marketing content aimed to wow in presentations to ensure your brand makes that lasting impression. 

 

Our goal is to inspire, enable and educate our clients. We support and nurture the design process, providing guidance and apparel production knowledge throughout the key phases of 'bringing to market'.
