DESIGN INTERNSHIPS


A&F Design Internships provide top design students a behind-the-scenes look into the creative process that drives the A&F brands. This 8 week program in Apparel Design, Technical Design, Print & Pattern Design or Graphic Design (on-apparel) exposes students to the fast paced world of fashion retail. Interns will be placed in a specific product category where they will work with cross-functional teams to create trend right product for a specific brand. After one week of intense training, interns will quickly take on more responsibility, gain exposure to senior management and have the opportunity to make an impact on their product category. These highly competitive internships are unique for their level of creative involvement and are designed to prepare students for full-time Assistant Designer positions after graduation.

In addition to working hard, interns will experience a summer full of exciting team-building and social activities!
