An internship with us is a very hands-on working experience - you will be cutting out, preparing garments and accessories for sewing, pressing, cutting loose threads, overlocking etc. You will also be shadowing Jed Phoenix, a successful niche market fashion designer, who has been running a distinct fashion brand since the early noughties. We are based in South London. More information about the role can be found by reading the fashion studio production assistant internship article.

What Previous fashion interns say about their internship

Andrea came over from Mexico in 2014 and did a 3 month internship. She co-designed some of the pieces that now form our 12 key looks and immersed herself in what it's like to run a niche market fashion and style brand. Asking her what she gained from her intership in London, she said:

"1) There isn't just one way of doing things. 2) It's ok to f*#k up. Everyone does. Its part of the learning process 3) You can never know too much 4) Always be open to knew ideas 5) Taking a break is essential for productivity  6) Time is money (I had heard this a lot but grounded it once I put it into practice) 7) HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE are essential for a very successful business"

Rosie was a fashion student at Plymouth College of Art and did a 3 week internship in 2012.

"It was really exciting to see garments coming together from initial concepts or new ideas developing from simply playing around with scraps of fabric. I love the design journey and weird ways in which ideas can come about. My confidence has definitely grown and I have learned to take a more hands on approach rather than spending too much time contemplating a concept. I am now a lot happier with getting stuck in straight away!"
