2020Apparel Design; Graduated 2018 Fashion Merchandising https://www.fashion.udel.edu/Images Intern Profiles/Dan Koob Intern Profile.jpgApparel Technical Design Intern<p>This Summer 2019, I had the privilege of working at QVC within their Design, Development & Global Sourcing Department, a branch of their greater Merchandising Department (also housing Buying and Planning teams). I worked as an Apparel Tech Design Intern, where I gained hands-on experience in developing technical packages, measuring incoming sample garments from our overseas counterparts, and used industry PLM systems to communicate fit corrections to our production factories. </p><p>Once a fit sample garment arrived from our factories, it was my job to spec (measure) it and notate whether or not it was out of tolerance (a small range in which a sample can measure and still be approved for production) noted in the tech pack POM sheets. Afterwards, the sample would go to the tech designer to conduct a fit session with fit models to observe the physical placement on the body. I shadowed these sessions and observed the process of writing fit comments (of any design/measurement changes) that would then be communicated back to the factories. </p><p>QVC overall was incredibly welcoming and truly encouraged our professional development. The skills learned from our Product Development, Patternmaking, and Illustrator classes were keys to our success throughout the internship. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to work for such a unique retailer. Thank you, QVC! </p><p>(Summer 2019)<br></p>https://www.fashion.udel.edu/Images Intern Profiles/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=37
