Global Experiences is known for its expertise in fashion industry internship placements in Italy and around the world. The Project Moda concept was developed to offer fashion interns the chance to be involved with some of the more public and glamorous aspects of the fashion world. As a young fashion professional, it is rare to see the process of fashion from concept to catwalk. Much of being a fashion intern is focused on tasks based on the season, improving technical design skills or navigating the business side of the industry.
In 2010, Global Experiences launched Project Moda: Season One. This innovative program complements the internship experience by providing a unique, experiential fashion event as well as networking opportunities for students and European fashion industry professionals.The fashion industry is one of the largest global employers and an international perspective on fashion is essential for fashion students to launch a successful career. Global Experiences are preparing these future fashion leaders through experiential programs such as Project Moda. This video highlights the program in 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13A8bVfr1zU
