They combine an innovative approach to textiles with a practical view of the end-products as usable garments. Knitwear designers are usually involved with overseeing the production and manufacture of their products, although some work freelance to deliver concepts and designs to manufacturers. Many knitwear designers progress to running their own labels and providing goods direct to customers through a shop or e-commerce outlet.
