Designers Guild is a Fabric & Wallpaper Store and has multiple showrooms around London. I worked at Designers Guild for 2 weeks and had the most exciting time. I spent majority of my first week in the sample room, ordering samples and assisting customers to find the samples they desire. I must admit, I became quite good at this, knowing exactly where all the fabrics were placed and becoming very familiar with the Fabric Codes.
The second week was more practical. I really wanted to make a mark during the time I was with them. I knew they continuously have interns coming in and out and I really did not want to feel like I was just another intern passing through. So as well as keeping up my daily duties in the sample room, I was willing to do a lot of decoration/ painting work in the showroom, just because I know that once the internship is up, the work will still be beautifully displayed there.
I did a lot of painting, the walls and the sample blocks and extra bits and pieces to help with the decoration aspect of the showroom.
Lots of Love
