Jeremiah’s approach to design is based upon research, analysis and the evaluation of data and ideas. He is enthralled by the whole creative process – from inception to completion – and finds that designing and pattern-cutting fulfil both creative and mathematical interests.

With a background in new media and advertising, he has worked with stylists on editorial shoots on magazines such as LookBook and twenty4seven before graduating from London College of Fashion in 2005. He has worked with designers, including Tristan Webber, Pauric Sweeney, Giles Deacon and Boudicca while in London. He later went on to work as the main pattern drafter for Marjan Pejoski and KTZ and overlooked the production in Indonesia. He later moved to China and worked as a product developer for companies such as JC Penny’s, Kohl’s and Toys ‘R Us. He has also taught drafting and construction in Mumbai for two years before returning to Singapore in 2010. Meanwhile, he frequently consults for UK label, Bodybound.
