I was responsible for...
Help create garments by adding lace, fringe, crystals, and various appliques and cutouts. Also create my own sketches and sew cut fabric to make garments from scratch.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment during my internship was learning so many different sewing techniques to help create elevated designs.

I learned...
The greatest lesson that I learned during my internship is to make sure to communicate with everyone that will be involved in creating each garment to make sure that everyone is on the same page and all concerns are addressed.

Advice for others...
My advice for future students is to be open to trying new things and ask plenty of questions, not only of your supervisor but also other workers.
