Duo-internship experience Pavani
Who are you?
I’m Pavani Vyncke, 25 years old. I studied Fashion Technology.
What did you do after your studies?
I had already looked up some vacancies, but there was not much choice and I was also not sure of what exactly I wanted to do, so I opted for the duo-internship.
In our final year of Fashion Technology we had a session in which Young Patterns was introduced. I then looked further on the Young Patterns website and requested an interview with Katrien and then later with Ann. With Ann’s help I ended up with Jo De Visscher for my first six weeks of the duo-internship.
Where did you do your internship? What do the companies do exactly and what was your role?
I did my internship at Jodevisscher , a Belgian fashion label with a boutique in Ghent. The fashion label is designed in Ghent, a large number of prototypes are also produced here. Since it is not a gigantic fashion house with hundreds of employees, I had some more time to explore different aspects. I stitched prototypes, cut fabric, made Illustrator drawings for the technical file, helped preparing the production and did retouching.
