Real Internship Experience: Shoshanna

Trade shows are an integral part of every fashion company's annual calendar, so when Jeanine Fajardo began her Winterim internship at Shoshanna, a contemporary dress and sportswear label, she was able to experience an important aspect of the industry.

"I worked full time during Winterim and truly got a sense of what goes into the business of fashion. I did specs, sourced trends, helped the in-house patternmaker, and sewed buttons and trims onto samples. My internship at Shoshanna reinforced the passion I have for the fashion industry. It's where I'm meant to be." -- Jeanine Fajardo, AAS Fashion Design, '07

"During Jeanine's internship, we were busy preparing for a major trade show for the summer market. Her enthusiasm and willingness to help with everything from merchandising meetings, costing, and line sheets, to running to the sample room were fabulous. She came to the Intermezzo show at the Javitz Center with our team and took an active part in showing the line to our customers and helping with orders." -- Kasey Kahler, Sales Executive, Shoshanna
