Eden has established links with a number of fashion courses including Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. Their Fashion Management degree course has now been running for six years, and Eden has been involved with offering work placements to their fashion management course students since its outset.
Over the years we have also worked alongside students from Glasgow Caledonian University plus international students from Holland and France. Currently on placement is Karen, who is our sixth intern from RGU. Karen is almost at the end of her placement and over the twelve weeks gained an insight into the day to day workings of a small independent fashion boutique, plus attending fashion shows and buying appointments.
From a personal point of view I think it is important for the students to have an opportunity like this, so they are able to put their theory learned through their studies into practice within a working environment. The areas in which practical experience is offered include managing our social media presence, website, sales & marketing projects and buying trips to suppliers.
