TNSE: Fashion Design | Tech Design Intern
The New Standard Edition (TNSE) is a New York based contemporary men’s wear brand that provides modern alternatives for work and weekend apparel. They started in 2013 with men’s bottoms and recently expanded to tops and sweatshirts. While I interned in fashion design for TNSE I had the opportunity to design and make tech packs for the Spring ’17 collection.
For each item in the spring ‘17 line I created a tech pack with specs, call-outs, colors, and fabrics. I focused on the details in this collection. For example, the Harrison Contrast Cuff Chino has printed chambray pockets and waistband lining. I made call outs for each detail to make communication with factories in China easier. By the end of this internship I designed a total of seventeen garments and three prints. Samples of the spring line arrived after I left TNSE. However I was able to see the finished products in the look book and on-line at newstandardedition.com. The collection went on sale on TNSE’s website in February 2017 and became available on nordstromrack.com in April 2017.
