This post is for the young upcoming designers who not trained in fashion design and are interested in interning for me at Poisa, please do not get offended if I can’t take you on to intern at Poisa. At Poisa we only intern people who have trained and are training in fashion design. This is because there are very few places for fashion students to intern and upcoming trained fashion designers to learn the fashion industry in Fashion Houses in Kenya. I believe that they should get the priority because they have seriously chosen to become fashion designers and not just pursuing a hobby. So Please don’t get offended, I just feel the place should be filled by someone training or trained in Fashion Design. Thanks Pat Mbela.
