2019Fashion Merchandising Intern Profiles/Takeara Purnell Pic 1.jpgVan Dale Industries, Sales and Showroom<p>While at Van Dale Industries, I work in the show room along with the associates who work here on a daily basis. My duties are inventory checks for the brands that are held under the Van Dale name such as Jessica Simpson, IZOD, Rampage, Babydoll, etc. I also help out with pulling items for upcoming meetings with buyers of various retail stores. Occasionally, I make runs for some of the designers at Van Dale to drop off garments or pick up color chips for their designs. </p><p>The University of Delaware has prepared me for this internship in many ways. I was prepared for this internship by learning from various fashion courses the business side and textile side of fashion. With my knowledge of fashion business I was able to point out how sustainable this company is. Instead of throwing away old garments, for example, they find new and innovative ways to make them unique and stylish for a new costomer. They’ve also prepared me to have the knowledge of how to care and maintain different garments depending on the fiber or fabric they were made from. Lastly, I learned that professionalism is key in the fashion industry along with any other business. All in all, being open to new ideas helps with succeeding and learning more about the fashion industry. </p><p><br></p> Intern Profiles/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=33
