I principally worked in the e-commerce and PR department. During this placement my duties consisted of assisting on photographer led photo-shoots for website photography and look-books, coordinating and maintaining stock, as well as photographing items myself which were uploaded onto the company website. As a consequence I was able to gain a very good understanding of how styling, composition and proportion are critical when showcasing garments and items to their best potential. My role also consisted of liaising with external PR companies, providing samples and information for press coverage as well as cataloguing brand appearances.
By way of introduction my name is Jessica Rice and I am a recent graduate from Loughborough University where I was studying Textiles Innovation Design specialising in Printed Fashion. I also gained a Diploma in Professional Business Studies.
