What kind of work did you do and how relevant were your projects?
This is a strictly design internship. No production or sample making. I was happy that my first job was rendering flats on the computer. The rest of my internship included fabric and trim sourcing, creating prints on the computer, helping create mood boards, organizing the collection by fabric in a computer chart, archiving past collections and organizing the fairly tidy design studio. I also helped with model fittings and dressing for the show. An important part of this internship was being able to listen in on design meetings between Peter and the assistant designers.

This is a very relaxed internship. Everyone is very friendly. As you may have heard, Peter Som is a foodie and often brings gourmet treats for everyone. You will gain experience, and maybe a pound or two.
