Title: The Natori Company seeks Josie Natori Design Intern
Date: 1 January 2017 | 5:00 am
The House of Natori, founded in 1977, has since been turning the world of fashion inside out and has become one of the fashion industry’s most recognizable designer brands. What started as a single embroidered nightshirt shown in Josie Natori’s apartment has become four sought after labels – Josie Natori, Natori, N Natori and Josie by Natori.
The Collections reflect the designer’s distinctive East/West aesthetic, with products ranging from ready-to-wear, lingerie, loungewear and sleepwear, to home textiles and accessories, bath, fragrance and eyewear. Natori products are available in the world’s leading luxury retailers and specialty stores, including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Dillard’s, among others.
As a Design Intern, students will be working with the Josie Natori RTW and Lingerie designer team for the purpose of developing viable fashion collections. Specific projects may include: developing mood/concept and color boards, preparing line sheets for sales, setting-up lab-dip pages and pitch print sheets, print development and colorations, working with CADs on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, setting up technical packages, attending fittings/design meetings/print appointments. The internship program will hopefully enhance students existing experience and training in Fashion, allow students to work closely with industry professionals and gain new skills in a hands-on environment. Design students may need to present a portfolio or a few sketches as part of our interview process.
