Atelier Sposa (Bridal Atelier)

May 17, 2013


Last Friday was my last official day of my internship with Sabine Valente, a bridal atelier located just a 5-minute walk away from the IES Milan Center. Over the past three and half months, I’ve learned a lot through this internship, even though bridalwear is not something I’m personally interested in as a designer. I definitely created a bond with Sabine and my amazing supervisor Caterina, and I will miss them dearly when I leave Italy. They have supported me so much, whether in chatting about relationship problems in Italian (a good sign of improved language skills!) or encouraging me in my abilities as a photographer. My hope is that we will be able to keep in touch until the next time I get a chance to come to Milan!


Venerdì scorso è stato l’ultimo giorno allo stage con Sabine Valente, un atelier sposa che viene trovato a due passi dal IES Milan Center. In questi mesi, ho imparato tanto per questo stage, anche se gli abiti da sposa non mi interessano come carriera. È stato creato un vero legame tra io e Sabine e la mia supervisore meravigliosa, Caterina, e mi mancheranno di sicuro dopo sarò partita dall’Italia. Sono state un grande fonte del sostegno, sia quando chiacchieravamo in italiano dell’amore e dei rapporti (un segno che il mio italiano è migliorato!) sia quando mi incoraggiavano come fotografa. Spero che possiamo rimanere in contatto fino alla prossima volta!

She is currently a junior. She strives to design innovative, functional, and enduring clothing that elicits an emotional connection with the wearer. Her dream is to become a &quot;people&#39;s designer&quot;: far from the realms of both luxury and fast fashion, serving those in the average population who understand that clothing is meant to be cherished for years beyond a single season. When she isn&#39;t in the studio, Jocelyn likes to knit, study foreign languages, journal, cook, bike, play the guitar, run, and wash dishes, occasionally (somewhat) simultaneously.</span></p>
