Internship Opportunity at Lavalune

Lavalune Internship

Lavalune is a dancewear and yoga-inspired activewear apparel manufacturing business. The company is a small business selling wholesale and e-commerce retail, but the plan is to further expand into new wholesale markets in 2011. The internship will involve design, pattern-making, cutting, sewing samples, and possibly contract sewing. Heavier emphasis will be on pattern-making, design, and cutting. The intern may also be able to participate in occasional wholesale sales meetings, tradeshows, or attend the apparel mart.
Must have good pattern-making skills and good understanding of fit
Be able to offer new design ideas
Must have good sewing skills
Be detail-oriented
Be available immediately and ideally be able to continue through the summer (time commitment is usually a few hours a week but there could be some busier weeks)
Fabric knowledge helpful – especially pertaining to drape and stretch capability
Have real samples of your own work (that you’ve sewn) ready to show
Work from home is OK, so hours are flexible, but be willing to meet about once per week or as needed (Lewisville area near I-35).
Please submit a resume and 3 pictures of clothing/samples you’ve made. Plan to bring these when we meet. I will be calling to interview starting immediately.
Compensation: This is predominantly an unpaid internship, but you will receive course credit toward your degree. There may be a small fee paid for certain functions. More details given during interview.
