Rams’ Apparel Design and Production Interns in the Big Apple

Fashion Week is starting next Monday and we’d like to shine a light on the Rams studying with some of the top designers featured at this biannual industry event. We spoke with Carol Engel-Enright, a professor in the Department of Design and Merchandising at CSU, as well as the internship coordinator for the school. She spoke of seven Apparel Design and Production interns who will be working behind the scenes with New York designers featured in Fashion Week.

Brendan Olsen interning at Thom Browne

 Brendan Olsen, a design intern for Thom Browne in New York, described why clients look to Thom Browne, “Customers come first and foremost for the immaculate construction and perfectly tailored shrunken suiting made in the highest-quality fabrics, but they keep coming back for the statement pieces that are released every season.”

When asked about his duties at the firm Mr. Olsen stated “I work closely with the head of Product Design (my boss) in coordinating and allocating materials, trims and tags to the various factories and vendors we have around the Midtown Manhattan office. Additionally, I work with PLM software to create purchase orders and tech packs for factory production, as well as working on Illustrator making flats (line-drawings of garments) and technical specification and construction sheets.”


The designs of all of the students mentioned above will also be featured in the CSU Fashion Show “Spectrum” planned and produced by current CSU Apparel and Merchandising students at the Lincoln Center on April 6. The collections presented will include modern, athleisure, luxury ready to wear, and so much more.

Look for more info on the Spectrum Fashion Show in upcoming issues of Style Overview.
