Are technical matters consuming all your time? 

I let you spend time on your core business again

Are technical matters consuming all your time? Frustrated by delays and miscommunication?

Would you prefer to leave the technical work to a professional who can follow your creative brain and think along with you?

Then you should be with me. Danielle Steman, nice to meet you.

I am your digital right hand and I help you with digital solutions for important parts of your creative process and your business operations.

This is what I can do for you:

pattern development

Hand over the boring part to an expert and focus on what you do best, designing beautiful clothes.

Digital sampling

Speed up your time to market, save your money and set huge sustainable steps with digital samples.

Remote tailoring

Offer your customers the luxury of tailor-made but leave the labor-intensive manual work behind.

advice & training

Increase your skills with a hands-on training or follow an online course in your own time and pace.

Why would you work with me?

There are plenty of others out there who can also make patterns. Just google on “pattern maker”, “pattern development” or “make clothing samples” and you have plenty of choice.

But why would you choose me anyway?

As a designer with a technical tic (or techie with a fashion tic, that is also possible) I understand exactly what you encounter.

I’ve been making clothes for almost 40 years, so by now I know what can and cannot be done.

I know a lot about fitting (I can write a book about it if there were more than 24 hours in a day).

Due to my technical background I have an excellent 3D insight and I am super handy with CAD programs.

Sustainability is extremely important to me. This is the reason to invest heavily in 3D software and thus make the clothing industry a little bit more sustainable and less destructive. Because it is quite clear by now that the current model doesn’t work anymore.

How did I get here?

When it comes to “important” things I have always been a bit nonconforming; I choose a practical education (technical mind you) instead of going to university, I have never been married and I have no children.

And then in 2016 I quit my well-paid job to “do something in fashion”. Something to do with whining on the couch, depression and choosing for yourself (I can recommend you by the way, but preferably without depression :-))

But then what? It was obvious to work as a tailor, after all I also have a tailors diploma.

And so it happened …

… And then you find out that sitting behind a sewing machine for 40 hours a week for work is something different than making a nice dress in your spare time.

And the nerd in me missed the technical work too. Digital pattern drawing (I soon abandoned the manual work) is much more fun than sewing.

Meanwhile, the pattern drawing has escalated a bit out of control. Photo module here, 3d module there. I can do something with that…

It had to be pointed out to me, but that “something” turned out to fit together very nicely and even more was possible than expected. As a result, I now only offer digital pattern related services.
