Rachel Comey Studio is seeking immediate full time and part time interns to join our footwear design, apparel design, pattern making and wholesale teams. We are an NYC based womenswear brand that grew out of the downtown arts scene of the early 2000s, and has become known for collections with artful custom textiles, graceful modern silhouettes, and covetable footwear.

This is a great opportunity to learn from close involvement and one-on-one with a supervisor, and interface with other departments in a close studio environment. This is not an employment position, but we can offer credit towards course completion.

Requirements:

Footwear Design:

Tasks include: researching trends, new materials, trims and color palettes; participation in creation of initial concepts, design sketches and innovations for footwear and accessory ranges. Must be proficient in Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Minimum of 3 full days/ week commitment is recommended. Minimum term is 3 months.

Apparel Design:

Tasks include: researching trends, silhouettes, fabric treatments, embellishment and trim; participation in creation of initial concepts and design sketches for all RTW and Knitwear categories; shadowing the sample manager in the sample development process and visiting local factories and suppliers. Must be proficient in Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Minimum of 2 full days/ week commitment is recommended. Minimum term is 3 months.

Pattern Making:

Candidates must have a fashion design background and an interest in pattern making and draping. Prior experience with sample rooms and design development is a plus, but looking most for organized and driven interns. Part time interns are recommended to commit to 3 full days/week for a minimum of 3 months. Full time interns can intern for a shorter period of 1 to 3 months.

Wholesale:

Tasks include: participation in creation of weekly analytics, researching new stores, shadowing the sales team in showroom appointments and maintenance. Must have experience with Word and Excel. Minimum of 3 full day/ week commitment is recommended. Minimum term is 3 months.
