Fashion Design

Recipient of Penny Fox Internship Fellowship

I will be completing a costume design internship with Philadelphia’s International Opera Theater in Città della Pieve, Italy this summer. The specific production is Camille Claudel. It is based on the life of Camille Claudel, who was a 19th century sculptor with a creative and sometimes romantic relationship with Rodin.

I believe this internship will help me to achieve my goal of being a costume designer.. It will give me the chance to supplement my technical skills and also increase my understanding of the theater industry. Additionally, I feel this internship is an ideal fit for my personality and abilities. I respect the organization for their philosophy, the manner in which they decide the operas to produce and their dedication to avoiding depletion of natural resources. The Penny Fox Internship Fellowship will make it possible for me to experience this wonderful opportunity, without which, it’s unlikely I would be able to attempt such an ambitious undertaking.
