Summary of Internship

During my internship, I was given a lot of responsibilities by my mentor Lisa Rosa in the Technical Design Department of DKNY. At DKNY I attended meetings with my mentor, updated major changes that were made to her binders, organized the models vouchers and invoices, and helped other workers that needed my assistance with the Technical Design Department. Given this opportunity to be a part of DKNY, my whole perspective on the fashion and business industry has changed. The demand of what needs to be done on time is a great responsibility and needs to be done accurately and efficiently. When it comes to having a job here, it was my priority to make sure I do the best job I can.
