I'm very excited to announce my work experience has been confirmed for April this year. I will be working on my university stand at Printsource trade show in New York. I will be exhibiting my fashion fabric prints which will give me a great insight into the full process from designing a final collection to selling the designs to clients which then are reproduced. I will get the opportunity to hand out my press pack internationally and gain more contacts in the industry. My aim is to get a position in industry where I would do a month designing prints and a month selling. I have already completed two studio placements and can't wait to experience the selling side to make sure it is definitely for me!
