“Interning with VPL, a small yet upcoming designer women's wear company in NYC, was an invaluable experience and allowed me to view all aspects of the industry. Everything from the original design sketch, to sourcing fabric, to production, to sales, all took place within the studio” -Alyson Wellman, Intern, VPL, NYC.

“Nordstrom internship was a great experience and I highly recommend it! – Intern, Liis Sober, San Francisco.

“This experience has surpassed all expectations I had of this internship with Dawahares. Interning with such a small company has allowed to me to be involved in almost every aspect of merchandising, from preparing samples for photo shoots, buying, completing the open to buy every Monday etc. Best of all they offered me a position!!!”
