Technical Design

Clothing reflects a person’s style to the outside world and provides function for their wearing occasions from walking the dog to a night out on the town.

At Nordstrom Product Group (NPG) we are dedicated to providing garments allowing comfortable movement while flattering the figure. Our technical designers work with suppliers to achieve consistent fit and quality by maintaining standards while achieving the brand’s cost targets and design integrity.

The Technical Design team manages the fit process from design through commercialization. Technical Design works directly with the manufacturers throughout the fit process to ensure that the fit and construction integrity of the design is maintained throughout the product lifecycle.
