Commando

Commando founder, designer & CEO is Kerry O’Brien. Having no formal design background, she contributes with a unique approach to the fashion industry. Rather than fitting a style on a model with standard proportions and simply grading the pattern up and down, they test their garments on all sizes and create unique, custom patterns to optimize fit. Kerry personally fit-tests every garment, and if she doesn’t love it, it will not go into production.

Their production is based in the US and they source their fabrics from Europe. Finding skilled sewers and people interested in working in manufacturing in the US is challenging. Commando offers paid training to sewers and production workers interested in developing skills to sew, cut, trim and produce. They ensure that the people making their products are working under proper conditions and being paid fair wages.
