Lavalune Internship

Lavalune is a dance and yoga-inspired activewear apparel manufacturing business. The company sells wholesale to stores and e-commerce retail. The internship will involve design, pattern-making, cutting, and sewing samples. Heavier emphasis will be on pattern-making, design, and cutting. There is also an opportunity to learn and use the Gerber design software system at our factory location. The intern may also be able to participate in occasional wholesale sales meetings, tradeshows, or attend the apparel mart.

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.
