School

What kind of work did you do and how relevant were your projects?
I learned so much while I was interning at Coogi. I learned how to do pattern repeats on cads in plaids and stripes, how to freehand new styles and fill them in, I was able to help design a collection with one of the other designers. I worked on trim, met with the merchandiser etc.. I thought it was a great learning experience. Before getting there I knew that Adobe Illustrator was important, but I did not have the confidence that I needed that comes with experience to land a job after school. My first job was very fast paced and from my internship I felt I had the skills to help me, because they trained me to work faster and smarter by showing me short cuts for design details and giving me deadlines to finish small projects. I highly interning there.. great people and a laid back environment.
