McKnight & Brown and the team have undertaken a new venture. We have embraced the opportunity to provide an internship for a third-year SIT Bachelor of Fashion student – Sarah Xiao Ping Jones.
Sarah is interested in tailored men’s fashion and her final collection is going to be focused on this area. We feel that we can provide Sarah with some valuable learning in this area, and in turn, learn from her technical expertise.
Because our product mix is heavily weighted towards tailored clothing – suits, jackets, and trousers, the internship should be an ideal vehicle for the furthering of Sarah’s education and provide a greater understanding of the fashion supply chain from production to retailing.
McKnight & Brown’s initial association with the Design and Technology department of SIT
was our sponsorship of the Chrysalis Nova showcase of the 2017 Bachelor of Fashion graduates. Having an intern from the programme allows us to build on this involvement and play an active role in the future of local menswear fashion.
Keep an eye out for Sarah in the store and make sure to say hi.
