Dear Rachel!

I would very much appreciate your help. I am studying for an MA in Marketing at Kingston Business School under the supervision of Professor Robert East. We are conducting research about Fairtrade goods and ethical fashion clothes, and ask you to complete the enclosed short questionnaire. 
I am also offering a £50 shopping gift voucher to the lucky prize draw winner!!!!

Could you please complete this questionnaire, following the link

Thank you very much for your help.
Yours sincerely,

Alma Erzhanova

I think if you send your CV as well then they can see what else you've done. Because I did knitted textiles, I mainly helped in the design of AW11 knitted garments and accessories. But I also got to do some woven & print. I did everything from making fashion specs & editing and other photoshop work, swatching knitted samples, grading, visual feedback for knitwear, deliveries, showroom duties... It was a lot but it was good. I did have a part time job for a while but i've got other commitments with the artist co-operative I'm with. you do get a lot of responsibility but its exciting and you will learn so much. If you get the chance to intern with them, definitely do it. x

Basically its all about having the confidence to just go for it.

I graduated. I knew I needed to get moving because there is a lot of competition in our field. So I just emailed loads of companies. I knew about People Tree for years and I knew that they were the kind of company that I wanted to work for.

So I just applied for the design internship online and I also followed it up. I think that the key to getting noticed is just going for it and to try and have confidence in your work and yourself. People say I'm confident, I dont think I am. I get major butterflies but it pushes me I guess!

I would email them now actually, or if u want to send me your CV I can forward it on to the buying & design team. They're all really lovely. x
