Internship - Love, Adeline

Aside from all my school work and trying to design/construct my first collection, I’ve also been interning over the past few weeks at one of my favorite apparel brands. Bridge & Burn was the first “Portland” brand I was exposed to when I moved here four years ago. Since then, they’ve always been on my fashion radar. When the chance came up to help out as an intern, I couldn’t pass it up.

So far I’ve learned a lot about samples, costing, and the art of measuring specs. It has been a blast and it’s a great reminder of my long term goals. It blows my mind sometimes when I realize this little dream of mine is actually starting to come true.

It has begun! I’m in the process of making patterns for my new line, Machine, that will launch in April. Tonight I did fittings with my fit model and it went so smoothly. The patternmaking process has been the scariest unknown for me in this whole process, but so far it has been pretty great. We’ll see how things progress over the next few weeks.

The last big hurdle is finding the right fabrics. I have a few different selections for samples, but I’m missing some key pieces. I just hope I can find something that I love that is magically also in my budget. Ha…
