I’m Deedee, Your straight-talking fashion Coach, and design & development specialist.

Welcome to Chickadee Design Consultancy.

We are a creative fashion design & development hub working with SMEs and startups through brand coaching, creative & technical design, and product development. We are passionate about supporting you on your fashion brand development journey from initial concept to finished product. Our goal is to help you create original, commercially viable, and successful collections that align with your brand vision and identity.

Together we will make this a fun and inspiring process and get your ideas into production and ready to sell. With our down-to-earth and honest approach, not often associated with the clothing industry, we will support you through this sometimes overwhelming process of launching or growing your clothing brand. We are a multi-product fashion design studio with an excellent tech support team offering a professional end-to-end service that will meet you where you’re at.

Andree Girard-Kemp (aka, Deedee) founded the consultancy in 2018 after 15+ years of international experience working as head of fashion design and development for some of the largest global sports, lifestyle and RTW brands. She now works in a coaching and mentoring capacity and along with her team, on all aspects of the clothing design & development process, creating and producing sellout collections from creative brief to 1st sample to bulk production.

The consultancy also offers digital resources and toolkits all ready to download to help you develop your very own clothing line! My new product “How to Develop a Clothing Line” has just launched and is the perfect mix of informative ‘How to’ and creative planner. Take a look right here.

Andree was a real joy to work with. Very experienced and knowledgeable. Andree kept to the agreed deadlines and the quality of her work is superb. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks Andree.
