OSMAN, The eponymous label from british born designer OSMAN YOUSEFZADA, made it's debut in 2008 at London Fashion Week. OSMAN’S unique architectural, elegant aesthetic and strong, sculptural designs both flatter and celebrate the woman's body, qualities which have established him as one of London's most exciting talents. 2008 saw him nominated for the Designs of the Year award at the Design Museum, whilst also being awarded the prestigious BFC Newgen award sponsored by Topshop, for three consecutive seasons. OSMAN has also been shortlisted for the BFC/Vogue Designer fashion Fund in 2011, 2013, 2015, whilst also being shortlisted for a Frieze art award in 2014. Between collections, he also produces a collaborative journal - The Collective - A cross-disciplinary publication in which Osman draws on his own circle of fellow artists, writers and other creatives. OSMAN is sold internationally at the likes of Browns, Galleries Lafayette, Selfridges, Matchesfashion.com and Harvey Nichols.
This is a varied and hands-on role, in a busy and exciting studio environment with a very friendly, close-knit team; So teamwork and a pro-active, can-do attitude are key.
As a design intern, your role will play a key part in helping the assistant designer in the general development, and running of collections, including artworking, research and design development, working very closely with Product Development/fabrics and Sampling departments, and being general support for Osman and his Development team when necessary.
This is also a great role for anyone interested in print/fabric design, particularly hand drawn/painted prints, embroidery and fabric development; All of which form a core part of our collections, and are an integral part of Osman's design DNA.
In return we hope to offer brilliant first-hand experience, working in a small but fast-paced studio environment, with the potential for real involvement in our design and development process, as well as a close up view of how a small, successful luxury brand operates.
