Fashion internships offer an opportunity to learn about business-to-business trade between the fashion supply and demand side, as well as trends and forecasts, production processes, finances, fashion marketing and sales, fashion design processes, fashion media coverage, as well as international and public relations. Working in Fashion, interns may be involved in administration of fashion distribution, stock control, product merchandising, invoice management and control, assistance with production processes, and learning clothes manufacturing and design techniques. Interns will have the opportunity to learn about generating ideas and concepts, understanding designs and keeping up-to-date with emerging fashion trends, as well as general trends relating to fabrics, colours and shapes. Interns may learn how to sketch their designs by hand and digitally sketch their ideas with computer-aided design (CAD) programs which allow interns to see and adjust their work on virtual models.
This role requires knowledge of fashion principles and methodologies, as well as all aspects of the apparel industry, pre-production and production, garments consumption, costing, patterns, supervised samples, sewing rooms, mass garment production and cost and quality control. This role also requires interns to know how to fabricate designs that appeal to the target audience, and then to promote the product line with complementing campaigns. Interns will assist with a large scope of work, such as enhancing fashion and design methods, visualizing an idea and producing a design by using computer-aided design (CAD).
