Kaylin Moore: Intern for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia
My internship at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia was an invaluable experience. I was the textile design intern for the soft home department. My department created all of the bedding, kitchen, bath and beach textiles for the Martha Stewart lines sold at Kmart and Macy's. I first heard about the internship through Philadelphia University's career site. I started in June and worked until the end of August. Working at such a large and well known company was a great learning oppurtunity and I was given the chance to be involved in all aspects of the design process. These included working on art work to be used mainly for Macy's bedding, visiting vendors in the New York City area, partaking in conference calls, and attending in house design and merchandising meetings.
One aspect of design that I saw while I was working at Martha Stewart was the care and concern for the quality and detail of the product. It was important that the construction, color, and feel of a product was perfect before the Martha Stewart name was to go on it. I feel that this care exemplifies the ideals of the company. It was a great oppurtunity and I felt that I learned so much and was able to use many of my skills while working that I had learned while in school.
