Intern in 2018
Haute École des Arts du Rhin, Mulhouse, France
Focused on textile research for the project CACAU, I enjoyed developing patterns, weaving and creating technical drawings for this meaningful project. I also worked on the preparations for the Maison & Objet fair in Paris. It was a great experience to learn how to organise an exhibition booth as well as advertising on the exhibition floor. It showed me the importance of communicating about your work during a professional event.
I was delighted to share discussions about brand business, textile, design, travel, Dutch culture, and to discover delicious Dutch meals during lunchtime!
Nikkie transmitted her friendly vibes to me, and this internship made me believe in my aspiration to make textile design my profession. Currently, I’m working on design and weaving projects concerning the combination of sustainability and textile.
