HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 8, 2012 – Erica Lang, a rising senior majoring in interior design at High Point University, is serving as an intern in the professional field of interior design at Sew Fine II this summer.
Lang’s main responsibility at the internship is to shadow three professional designers. She also selects fabrics for clients, updates fabric books, measures window treatments and prices accessories.
Experiences inside and outside the classroom at HPU have given Lang the knowledge needed to make real-world decisions at the internship this summer. She has visited the High Point Market several times as part of her classes at HPU and met world class designers, such as Genevieve Gorder, the host of “Dear Genevieve” on HGTV.
“Everything that I learned in the classroom at HPU has a real application at my internship,” said Lang. “For example, my textiles class has already helped me understand how certain fabrics are made, their durability and where they are best used in a room.”
