We started our swimwear label, Matilda Cove, almost two years ago with the expert assistance of Alice and the team at Alcie May. Alice has helped us to transform our vision into an end product from concept drawings, through pattern development and finally high quality production of our eco-luxe swimwear garments. Alice is professional, talented and skilled. She provides both advice and problem-solving skills to assist us to achieve the design aesthetic we require and she has never let us down in terms of meeting our development and production deadlines. We regard Alice as an integral part of our label’s success and we hope to maintain our collaboration as our business continues to grow and thrive.


Alice has been sewing samples and production garments for my Activewear brand 'Flow' since the inception of the business in mid 2015 and I truly feel so lucky to have discovered this gem of a woman. She is an expert sewer, with a sharp eye for detail and is ever generous in sharing her knowledge of garment manufacture and design. Her passion spreads outwards as she helps to create not only her own future, but futures like mine as well.


Alice’s personal motivation, thirst for knowledge, attention to detail and natural creative flare serve her well in achieving high quality design outcomes in the highly competitive swimwear market. Her aesthetically outstanding product is enhanced by exemplary technical and quality standards. Alice uses time efficiently and never fails to meet deadlines. Her communication skills, illustrative, written and verbal have always been clear, concise and creative. Her patternmaking, design and presentation outcomes consistently achieve industry benchmarks, an outstanding achievement for such a young designer! 


Working with Alice is unique. Her technical craftsmanship is excellent, but what sets her apart is her commitment to challenging the status quo of the prescribed manufacturing environment. She supports clients to build their own businesses within an agile framework, from undertaking rapid iterations during the design process, through to deployment using lean start up principles; supporting the reduction of waste and allowing for scale quickly once demand for particular designs within a collection becomes visible.  She understands her clients, their business and customers, and standards as well as her own, often managing issues before they arise and looking for opportunities to mitigate risk.
