Interning at Preen and helping out at the LFW show has been one of my highlights this year!
I spent most of my time working alongside the Collection Manager and was in charge of creating specs for each garment being made in production. I'm a very confident Adobe user, and my Illustrator skills were key here as I was on a Mac every day drawing up garments.
Despite all of the horror stories you hear about interning and working backstage at fashion shows, it was actually a lot of fun and very relaxed. Yes, there were late nights the days before the show, but pretty much all of the pieces were finished about a week before.
