A Day In The Life Of A Design House – Part Two

Posted on 24 May 2008 by genshi

Continuing the series of photo sessions of the Fashion Design and Manufacturing house near the City of Commerce, this series, “The Factory and Warehouse” shows the workers of this massive production house in their daily routine. But this is no sweatshop (luckily.) These young men and women were very hard working, but they were happy, healthy and very personable.

A Day In The Life Of A Design House - Part Two

As I mentioned previously in part one of this series, the shoot gave me real insight to the day to day workings of such a huge company and their process. From the executive meetings in the showroom, to the art director’s brainstorming sessions, to the designers and their fleet of iMacs as they mockup patterns using CAD programs, to the pattern factory where they take the CAD files and create prototypes of the designs as well as the warehouse workers that pack and ship tens of thousands of products each day; their warehouse overwhelming.

The shoot itself was quite fun and more importantly, gave me a chance to tell their story Reportage style as I tried to capture the “moments” of the employees in their day to day business.

A Day In The Life Of A Design House

Posted on 21 May 2008 by genshi

I recently finished a series of photo sessions for a Fashion Design and Manufacturing house near the City of Commerce. Though they are not very well known by name, they are actually a huge company that designs and manufactures everything from cosmetic bags, travel bags and men’s grooming kits, to baby bath products, pet carriers and luggage. The clients they design for are the big chain stores, everyone from Target to Sears.

I also had the chance to spend time with the warehouse workers that pack and ship tens of thousands of products each day. Their warehouse was overwhelming.
