I was responsible for...
My main responsibility was to assist Maggie Turner, the Product Development Manager. This includes working with different factory charts, the fabric library, Pantone color ways, and attending different fabric appointments to name a few.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment was creating the factory chart for the upcoming season. Every department of the company uses this chart for various reasons. I also got to learn about the upcoming season through this chart.

I learned...
If you are confused on something ask your boss right away instead of trying to figure it out on your own. It will make things a lot more time efficient.

Advice for others...
Your internship will be what you make it. Reach out to different people and get involved with the company! The higher ups will see this and appreciate it!

Submit your experience!
