3-Clothing is an environmentally conscious women’s apparel company based in Baltimore that has been described as “yoga chic.” Founded by Nikki Gordon, a former yoga instructor and holistic health counselor, this company has the goal of providing clothing that is professional, comfortable, and locally-made. Ms. Gordon began by making her own garments and finding people who wanted to buy them. After locating a local manufacturer to produce her clothing, 3-Clothing was officially established and continues to support the art of sewing and local manufacturing. The company now carries a variety of product lines in local retailers such as Jean Pool, Milagro, and Liquid Blue Denim in Baltimore.
I have been an intern with 3-Clothing for a year. Since my first day, I felt like a part of the family. I was taught everything from the quality control of garments to how to set-up and run events. Now, a year later, I am still a part of this great venture and am doing whatever is needed such as sewing, embroidery, assisting with styling, or quality checking and tagging garments. This internship has taught me how to create designs from start to finish as well as the opportunity to experience trials and tribulations faced by a young design company.
