DRZ Design provides independent apparel advisory services. It currently focuses on assisting established apparel focused businesses and entrepreneurs with all aspects of apparel design, product & textile development, sourcing, and production management.
DRZ Design was launched by Dessires Zarin in February 2015, after gaining more than 15 combined years of experience at two large international apparel companies. Dessi has worked on all aspects of apparel design and manufacturing with a focus on men’s, women’s and children’s sportswear, dress shirts, and activewear.
Dessires has 15 years designing private and branded labels for nearly all major retailers and department stores. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in fashion design and a minor in marketing & fashion merchandising.
Dessi’s experience and education has given her a comprehensive understanding of all stages and aspects of the apparel design process – from conception and product development through manufacturing and on-time delivery.
She provides hands-on guidance with all phases of apparel design, trend development, color palates, sourcing, and pattern selection. She also provides direct interaction with her clients’ vendors and manufacturers to ensure deadlines are met and the final product is refined and fashion-forward. Dessi also enjoys assisting start-up companies and entrepreneurs take their vision for new innovative and unique apparel products from simply an idea to a marketable product.
