Trenery’s head designer, Jane Grimme, understands the importance of creating authentic clothing, underpinned by modern shapes, quality materials and world-class fabrication.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Grimme has gained extensive experience in design and fashion retail, working for established labels that value quality, brand heritage and high fabrication standards.
Having started her career in New York as a design assistant for a small retailer, Grimme eventually landed a job as senior design director at Ralph Lauren – under the close supervision of the man himself.
After five years with the eponymous brand, she left New York for Melbourne to raise her young family. She was recruited by Trenery in 2008 as womenswear designer and soon promoted to head designer.
Her experience in New York put her in an ideal position to identify key trends and design focus for Trenery and help develop the brand.
In celebration of the newly formed Trenery Guild, Wanted Online caught up with Grimme to talk about how this initiative fits into the fashion brand’s vision.
