March 2nd, 2009
I was so excited when I was asked to be an intern at Twinkle. I love the fun, easy, and wearable pieces they create; they just make fashion fun.
When I started in January it was right before fashion week so the office was a buzz with preparation. I’ve worked in other studios, but never for a company that presented during fashion week. I couldn’t believe the immense amount of work that goes into a fashion show.
I had the opportunity to help with the chunky knits that Twinkle is famous for. I hand knit all the hats that were in the fashion presentation. It was a lot of work that involved knitting, de-knitting, and re-knitting some of the hats until they were the correct length and pattern. I’ve always loved hand knitting and am so excited that I got see my hand work in a fashion show. I worked right up to the last minute on the hats and my work paid off when I saw the images from the show on WWD.com.
I’m truly enjoying the office atmosphere here at Twinkle and can’t wait to see what the following months hold for me here!
