We have had some fantastic feedback from our recent fashion graduates this week.  Caroline Punch completed our part-time Fashion Buying & Merchandising course last year.  After some time spend in London working in a high end fashion boutique she is now back in Dublin and ready to embark on her fashion career.  We put her in touch with Arnotts who were offering internship programmes for the summer and we are delighted to say that Caroline starts with Arnotts next week.  Over the course of the 6 week intern programme Caroline will get to work with the Fashion team in preparing for Pennys Seasonal Press Day.  She will also get to work within the Homeware department allowing Caroline to gain experience in both buying and merchandising strategies.

Another fashion student gaining valuable experience this month is Natashja Beshoff.  Natashja who is a current full time Fashion Buying & Merchandising student is about to start a 3 week fashion styling internship with Uber fashion stylist Constance Harris, fashion editor for Sunday Independent.  Constance recently visited the college to deliver a guest lecture to our students about the role of a fashion stylist, working on fashion shoots and fashion forecasting.  Natashja will work alongside Constance over the next few weeks as she preps for a new fashion title about to be launched in to the Irish market.

Finally, Melissa Alvarez, part-time Fashion Buying & Merchandising student has landed a role with high street favourites Pennys.  Melissa starts a Merchandising role with the brand this week.
