The first 2 weeks with Partners in Bespoke have been very intense and interesting, a full-immersion in the Made-to-measure world. I met my HE and he welcomed me at the office. The other staff members are very nice and have a helpful attitude to assist me and the others colleagues with our work. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The place of work is divided in different areas: there are a showroom, a tailoring, a fabrics warehouse and an office area.
My HE explained me the enterprise’s development, experiences and missions and then made me an overview of task priorities in order to start with the preparation of the program.

In the first week I have started to study and learn a lot about brands that they handle and supply to the customers, fabrics and several collections, in particular about Scabal, their largest brand. Every fabric is of high quality and value. I learned about the raw materials, the fabric’s weight, the spinning and the different types of weaving. I could see and touch every fabric, to know better its material, design and pattern.

In the second week I focused on studying the procedures about the promotion, distribution and sourcing. I analyzed better the luxury fabric collections and their past promotional campaign. In the meantime Benjamin gave me some tasks to do like checking some suppliers, their catalogues and websites and then setting up all informations obtained in their folders. Another task was to help the project manager for quality control to test some fabrics and prove their quality. I took videos and pictures about testing. Very interesting.
The project is taking shape and I am very enthusiastic about it.
