    • Name: Junior Sone
    • How long have you been at the TOM TAILOR GROUP? 
      Since March 1, 2014 
    • Position/Function: Design Trainee 
    • Department/Division: TOM TAILOR Denim Male/Jackets + Denims

    My day at the office begins ...

    usually with coffee. Afterwards there’s more variety. Even as a trainee my tasks are very diverse. Whether it’s trend searching, material definition or fitting and evaluating prototypes, I work independently in the different production phases. But of course always after consultation with the designers.

    What I like about my trainee programs ...
    is that I have the opportunity of working independently on my own projects and also supervising them.

    A very special experience at the TOM TAILOR GROUP is ...
    the “international presentation”, also known as turning over the collection to Sales. This takes place once a month and I find it exciting each time.

    My favourite piece of clothing is ...
    a nylon bomber jacket that I designed myself for TOM TAILOR Denim and helped to develop.

    What I can do especially well is ...
    drawing! What’s great about it: It’s one of my tasks.

    What word do you associate with the TOM TAILOR GROUP?
    I can think of two: nonchalance and openness.
  • Since when have you been working at the TOM TAILOR GROUP?
    I started with an internship in September 2012 and then worked on my Bachelor’s thesis in International Sales at TOM TAILOR. After attaining my degree in May 2013, I had the fantastic opportunity of starting in e-commerce at BONITA.

    In which division & in what position do you work?
    I work in e-commerce at BONITA and my job title is Specialist Visual Creative.

    What did you do before?
    From 2006 to 2009 I was a trainee as Administrator for Audio-Visual Media with a focus on photo production & casting. From 2009 I studied Fashion Design at the “Akademie für Mode & Design” (Academy for Fashion & Design) and worked at various jobs in the field of photo production & marketing. In 2011 I did an internship abroad in Shanghai for several months, where I also came up with the idea for my Bachelor’s thesis at TOM TAILOR.

    What I like best about my job …
    is the fact that I can turn my hobby into a career.

    What special experience do you associate with the TOM TAILOR GROUP
    Without a doubt: the launch of our BONITA E-shop in June of last year. It was great to create something new and to be a part of it from the very beginning. And to be able to enjoy daily how the shop and the team developed and grew.

With passion, creativity and determination, the TOM TAILOR GROUP has become an international, publicly listed fashion and lifestyle group. Some of the most important facts:
