Saskia Norris Explaining her internship at Blendworth
I really enjoyed looking through their archives, creating colour boards and just spending time within the design studio, seeing how they planned, created and presented collections, the designers were so lovely to work with and really inspiring! Learning how to create strong colour palettes at uni was very helpful, but also experiences within group crits, being able to listen and communicate was really helpful within the workplace.
Mia Layzell Marc Jacobs
Everyone at Marc was so friendly and welcoming and I was treated as part of the team, being asked my opinion on designs and being properly involved, it felt like a little family. Being able to put my own ideas forward and for them to be welcomed and appreciated was really rewarding and something I never thought I’d be able to do there as an intern.
