Constantly analyzing consumer standards and upcoming social habits, Carlin delivers biannual trend-books as a creative tool for brands.
Another aspect of the company is consulting : Defining brand values and global positioning, accompanying brand development, etc.
As Junior Designer for the Intimates sector, it was my job to participate in the creative development of Carlin's Lingerie and Swimwear trendbooks, outlined as follows.
I enjoyed working with a diversity of global clientele, either as project assistant or
leading my own collaborations.

Reports and consumer insights
Always looking out for cutting-edge developments in the sector, I was in charge of regularly composing trade show & consumer reports. I also participated in the Interfilière Color Consultation as a member of the panel of fashion experts gathered prior to the show, to envision & discuss the next major trends and to establish the season's color palette.
