Are you an experienced, highly creative and organised designer who loves a fast and dynamic workflow? Do you want to be a part of a small, but fast-growing and DNA-driven fashion brand that takes pride in delivering newness & eye-catching designs for Express?
We are looking for an experienced Designer to join Y.A.S in Aarhus.
Working from our new and open office in the heart of Aarhus, you will join a small but dedicated and ambitious team – counting 13 people who are highly efficient and eager to share knowledge and experiences.
We work closely together to ensure that all design requirements regarding development of products are brought to the customers with short notice. Being a small brand, we are very ‘transparent’ and in close contact with our sales team, picking up any requests and developments daily – showing flexibility and understanding for each other and the work we do. We have a strong and heartfelt team spirit – we support each other in reaching higher goals.
As a Designer at Y.A.S, you will be responsible for creating six Fast Track (Express) collections each year in close cooperation with our Buyer. You will also ensure and identify new product opportunities to support growth and expansion of the business on a day-to-day basis based on an identification of increased sales opportunities.
Furthermore, you will be responsible for creating our SHOW collection three times a year. Our SHOW contains signature party dresses and apparel lines for special occasions.
In our Express team, we design commercial and coherent ranges in a fast-paced and energetic environment. Therefore, it is very important to listen and adjust the demands and, at the same time, drive a highly innovative trend level.
The ideal candidate is used to working with express, fast fashion and high volume collections in a fast-paced environment. You are confident with taking initiative, and you show independent decision-making. Furthermore, you are a highly creative and organised individual with a flexible work ethic. You thrive in a creative and dynamic environment where focus is on meeting deadlines and reaching our common goals.
You have a strong understanding of fabrics, trims, graphics, printing, embellishments, etc. You feel confident in range development, and you have a strong ability to predict fashion trends. Working as part of a team comes naturally to you, but, at the same time, you enjoy working independently, and you are highly self-motivated. Finally, you are commercially aware and able to think strategically in every process – always with Y.A.S’ target group in mind.
The position is a one year maternity cover.
