Addison Farrell
Senior Design Major Addison Farrell 
interned at EGG New York .“I am extremely grateful for the experience and exposure of the design industry and real-world tasks. I have grown as a fashion student and professional. Working alongside Abby, the head fashion designer for EGG New York, has exposed me to many tasks that must be completed outside of conceptualizing and designing clothes. I worked on organization of sketches, line sheets, style number information, and more that is essential for designs to come to life.”
