Fashion Design Intern - Learn by Doing!Bookmark This
86 Pierrepont Street Suite 5a
DescriptionHone your skills and get experience you won't at most internships.
Hands-on opportunity for design students or recent graduates to get experience working side-by-side with our designer, Paul Carroll. If you are looking to bring your skills up to the next level, this internship will give you the chance.
We have internships available for fashion design majors or people with intermediate to advanced sewing and draping skills to assist in preparing our sample collection for presentation and photography.
We are a very small design house that produces two collections a year. We do everything in-house from sketching, draping, flat patterning, cutting, and sample production.
Our collection consists mostly of cocktail dresses and separates, and evening wear. It is high-end, modern, and sexy. You can see what we do at www.paulcarroll.com

ResponsibilitiesThe position can involve any and all aspects of working with the designer in a (small!) workroom to create the samples. This is the ideal position for a motivated student who would like to work side-by-side with the designer to get hands-on experience. Tasks would include sourcing and pricing of fabrics, notions and trims, organizing and cataloging workroom supplies, cutting out patterns, simple garment construction, and sewing sequins or beads on finished samples.
The internship is unpaid, the hours are flexible, and it is a terrific opportunity to get real hands on experience doing everything involved in putting together a small collection. Chosen candidates will be required to be responsible, on time and reliable.
Our workroom is located in Brooklyn Heights, one stop from Manhattan, and is very convenient to many subway lines (4, 5, 2, 3, R, A, C).
Please be sure to include the word internship in the subject line.
RequirementsThe ideal candidate will have intermediate to advanced sewing skills and will have a keen interest in fashion and pay great attention to detail.
Must be available at least two days a week up to full time.
