Get Osana To New York City

Project 2015-05-16 14:50:38 +1200

Osana has been an intern for Lindah Lepou learning a lineage approach to fashion and Equinox Apparel for almost 12 months now, focusing her on building her confidence in real-world CMT (Cut, Make & Trim) i.e. sewing ‘production’ skills that will not only complement her three year fashion degree at Southern Institute of Technology, but enhance her life.

With us, Osana experiences first hand, our day-to-day pressures and the speed required in a real clothing manufacturing business dealing with real money gains and losses, from design, costings, cutting, sampling and garment construction that gives her invaluable insights she will continue to draw on over her career.

Being ‘independent’, building ones own ‘foundation’ using ones own lineage and unique gifts to live a fulfilled life experience is my expectation and utmost excitement for her.

New York


This trip is an opportunity for Osana to travel abroad, research and develop NEW ideas, meet likeminded people and experience diverse cultures, visit historical places, utilise all the inspiration and start documenting her journey towards a stable and exciting foundation to call her own.

Opportunity

This is an opportunity for you to contribute to someone who is responsible, talented, trustworthy and proud of her Samoan and New Zealand heritage. Your support will not only help Osana begin a new adventure that will open her up to multiple opportunities, but you can go along for the ride!!

Introducing Osana

Hi my name is Osana Suniula, Samoan born, raised in Auckland, New Zealand. I am currently living and studying in Invercargill at Southern Institute of Technology, in my 3rd and final year in Fashion Degree.

This internship has allowed me to gain knowledge and skills and have real world experience, hands on training and see how the industry works. The skills I have gained from the internship are invaluable. The internship has taught me to be stable, secure and independent especially in this industry.

This is the beginning of building my foundation, taking a risk and investing in myself. My love of fashion begins with fashion Art, which allows me to push boundaries with no barriers. I believe everything we create has a powerful meaning and a story behind it, I want to use my upbringing, my journey and lineage approach to create my story using Fashion art.

Travelling to NYC, will be a new experience for me, I want to visit educational establishment (Metropolitan Museum of Art etc), and do further research for my first collection for an exhibition at the end of the year.

NYC is the fashion capital, but it offers more than just what you see on TV and magazines, it has a rich history and I want to tap into that and allow myself to be immerse in the culture, vibe and energy.

Purpose is to be fulfilled in whatever I do and create a story (of my journey) that will make an impact long after I have gone.

$5000 will cover the cost for return flights and accommodation.
