Laurie, 21 years old, has been a proud fashion technologist since June 2020. Laurie was faced with many uncertainties when she graduated. In February 2020 she left for Spain on a foreign internship as part of her studies. A dream come true. In April the virus caused her adventure to the end and this made Laurie insecure about not being able to gain a lot of experience.
Laurie came in contact with Young Patterns through our ‘Fashion Flows‘ the first time. After finishing her internship she found us again. We, Young Patterns gave here the opportunity to do a duo internship. In this way Laurie could get here experience in the Belgian companies.
On September 17th she started her internship at Caroline Bosmans, this for 8 weeks. Here focus was on the production. She fulfilled various tasks such as making the technical files, fitting the pre-production samples and further monitoring the production. Att the beginning she was nervous, but eventually Laurie gained a lot of confidence.
The 2nd part of her internship will start soon. Laurie will start this time at Chirstian Wijnants, with the focus on marketing and communication. Something completely different but that makes a duo internship very interesting.
During a duo internship you can discover different things.
