Following the successful completion of this round of school training in textile designing and block printing, Dastoor developed portfolios of the trainees’ designs. These were forwarded to several textile houses and fashion brands for internships and a hands-on opportunity to experience the work. Koel, a textile and home furnishings brand, recruited 3 of our trainees for a month-long internship in block printing, which their own employees would supervise. The students are tasked with developing small products such as cushions and wallets to get a sense of product development and design. This opportunity will allow them to apply their newly acquired skills in a professional setting, more in line with market trends. The internship ends in the first week of August.
