The summer of 2013 I interned in New York City for Project Runway finalist Fabio Costa and his design partner Rebecca Diele's line Not Equal. My tasks included hand dying, braiding, sewing up garments made out of leather and jersey, bleaching denim, copying patterns, and aiding in the design process for the Spring/Summer line. I learned about successfully starting a brand, creative marketing, and how to be organized and timely with customers.
