We’ve been working with James for several seasons and, recently, our cooperation has become very close and effective. James is an exceptionally talented designer and creative consultant with a large experience in fashion development and production. Working with James is an exciting experience that we definitely recommend.
— Andrea Gorone - Owner of SEAB srl, QTA Founder, Trimming Sourcing & Development Specialist
Working with James for over a year was one of the most educational, enjoyable, and hassle-free professional relationships that we have experienced. His skill, knowledge, and dedication to our brand was exceptional and exceeded our expectations. The final collection that we were able to create with the expertise of James was exactly what we were hoping for. James was attentive, patient, and an excellent communicator throughout the entire process. He took our brand concept from an idea to a collection with real value. We could not recommend him any higher, and we look forward to working with James again in the future.
— Anna Headman - CEO & Founder of 88FRESH
James has become an integral and invaluable part of our design team here at the Uniform Studio. He is as quick to respond as he is to smile which makes him a joy to work with.
— Lois Hill - Director at The Uniform Studio
James has worked with Marané since 2014, and our relationship is still on-going.
James’ support, expertise and contacts were instrumental in the initial phases of launching Marané. He took the time to really understand what we were looking for and supported us the whole way. He often went above and beyond what was expected of him to help us achieve our goals.
I now count James as a friend, and have learnt a great deal from him.
I highly recommend him for his talent as a designer and tailor as well as his relentless commitment.
— Christine Serhal - Co-Founder of Marané Punta del Este
I have worked closely with James and his team for over 2 years not only with my brand REPO but collaborating on other projects also.
Their holistic approach to everything they do allows them the ability to understand your brand and the project fully. Their constant researching on markets, trends, new technologies and best sellers makes them one of the best.
James is an extremely talented designer/creative and unlike many designers, he has a strong commercial sensibility. ’Will this sell’ is always at the front of his mind and is very critical of his work.
James and his teams attention to detail every step of the way and having a reason behind everything they do is what makes his company exceptional. They have an amazing amount of solid and reliable relationships with a multitude of manufacturers, mills, and suppliers that can cater for almost any price point needed, so I always feel confident in leaving a project with them and excited when I am going to see the results. They always surpass my expectations.
James is incredibly passionate and it shows with his honesty, dedication and professionalism every step of the way.
Not only is it a continued pleasure to work with James, I now consider him to be a good friend.
