Summary of Internship

At my internship I had many different responsibilities interning with my mentor in the technical design department. I attended meetings, made updates in either the men's or women's book, I attended model fittings with my mentor, and helped around the office. Thanks to the activities in which I participated I learned how the business and fashion industries come together and how they impact one another. I feel that I was given the opportunity to get a good idea of what the business industry is like in fashion.
