We’re excited to introduce two of our interns from Oregon State University. They are based in our Corvallis, OR office and work directly with Browzwear teams to learn 3D Apparel Design with Browzwear’s VStitcher, Lotta, Stylezone, tech pack, fabric testing, material creation and digitization – necessary tools for a digital end-to-end product creation workflow. In addition, the interns learn to build digital assets, help with fabric testing and assist on client projects. At the end of their internship, they will have their own 3D portfolio project built with VStitcher and Lotta.
Lauren Johnson Oregon State University, Apparel Design
Browzwear intern Lauren Johnson was born and raised in Albany, Oregon, which is just “down the street” from Corvallis. She attends Oregon State University as a full-time student double majoring in Merchandising management and Apparel Design, and is now entering her senior year. Lauren likes to draw, listen to music, and hang out with her roommate’s cat. When she decides to do something a little more exciting, it’s usually spending time with roommates, friends or her family. Lauren enjoys hiking, playing soccer, thrift shopping (for clothing and home decor), and taking trips to “ma-and-pa” restaurants around Oregon. After her internship ends, she is planning to take a trip to Virginia to see her boyfriend of 5 years. He joined the Navy last year and is now stationed in Little Creek, VA, but is able to visit home every 6 months for about 2 weeks at a time… she can’t wait to see him!
Lauren hopes to gain skills from this internship that enrich her capabilities in the apparel industry. Fit has been one of the more challenging subjects for her in school, so she is excited to use an interactive visual tool to help her understand the mechanics of a garment and also create her “Vision to Reality” project this summer. Lauren first majored in apparel because she likes clothing, but couldn’t necessarily find exactly what she wanted in the stores, so she thought it would be better if she could alter or make make her own clothing. With everything she has learned and hopes to learn in the future, Lauren wants to own her own line of eco-friendly clothing with a sustainable business/production model.
Braden Yokota Oregon State University, Apparel Design Braden Yokota is originally from Portland, Oregon and joined Browzwear part-time in March, 2018.. In the Fall, he will be a Senior studying Apparel Design with a minor in business.
When Braden first started university, he planned on becoming a Mechanical Engineer because he enjoyed playing with any new technology and unique software that he could find. He most enjoyed the process of understanding how machines and technology worked. After one term, he was not enjoying the classes as much as he thought he should, so he searched for a different major that would better fit his interests…and he found Apparel Design. Braden’s interest in Apparel came from the latter half of his middle school years when he lived in Germany, a few steps from a large H&M shop. Braden really enjoys the Apparel Design program and has not regretted the switch, but he does still miss tinkering with technology, and he sees Browzwear as a bridge between his two main interests.
Braden loves working with all of the new technology that he is exposed to through Browzwear. Learning the ins and outs of the software, and tinkering with the Fabric Analyzer and Vizoo imaging box have been a lot of fun for him.
