I had really long summer holiday, so not waste the time I decided to find a job. Because I have an experience as Sample Machinist I have searched for this type of job. I could earn some money to help me during study. The are very many fashion brands that looking for student and offering internship, but I wanted to find a paid job, not internship and for a short period of time before I back to study.
I have applied for few position, one of them was the Sample Machinist at Palmer/Harding. Finally I get a job with them for about a one month to help to sew the SS17 collection for London Fashion Week. Also I helped them during the LFW show.
This is an amazing company, the team is very friendly and I had a really good experience.
