  • Assisting the design team on the development of the collection (dying zippers, sourcing trims and materials, fabric treatments, embroidery artwork/process).
  • Delivering and picking up from garment factories, fabric and trim vendors – (this will include a responsibility of time management skills).
  • An understanding of patternmaking.
  • Organizing trims and tracking inventory as well as pulling trims for production.
  • Knowledge of excel, Illustrator and Photoshop is a plus

Our company holds in-house patternmakers as well as seamstresses and a tailor, allowing for a very fulfilling environment to work – one can observe the development process from design concept, draping, patternmaking, construction, execution – to production and to sales/ PR.

While the internship is unpaid, we can offer school credit. Part-time or full time, at least 2-3 days a week for a 3+ month period is preferred - this is beneficial for both parties as more learning and experience gains with time.

An internship at KAUFMANFRANCO will provide you with hands-on experience and industry exposure!
