What is it like as a fashion design intern?

What are some of the day to day activities? What's the best and worst parts of your day?

What are some of the day to day activities?

My day to day activities are usually spent pretty late at the studio based in NYC. This is my first internship so thankfully it’s been great so far. I learn something new every day like getting proportions down or learning how to use a sewing machine. I’ve been encouraged to focus on personal projects so I’ve been buying different fabrics and it’s been a pain because each fabric behaves differently so most of my time is spent practicing on how to master them ;)

What's the best and worst parts of your day?

Best part of my day? I would say the best is when I get to tag along to fashion shows here in NYC. I’m right in the middle of the fashion buzz which is a dream come true really. Worst days are when I’m in a slump because I’m surrounded by a lot of hardworking and talented individuals who are lightyears ahead of me. The competition is pretty fierce in the Big Apple. Everyone is always in a rush and the fashion industry is equally as fast paced.

Hope this helps answer your questions Anon :)
