NYC Together X Line & Label

Internships are often thought of as being for the benefit of the intern, but more and more we’re seeing what effect they can have for the company taking on the intern, too.


When Jerome arrived at Line & Label, Kate O’Riley’s hip Greenpoint boutique, she didn’t know what to expect. She said she partnered with the NYC Together internship program this winter simply because she wanted to pass on what she knows to aspiring designers.

“I always thought it would feel good to mentor or help someone, but never could I have imagined how good it made me feel,” she told us recently in an email. “It was a life changing experience for me. I think the bond that I developed with Jerome will be life long. I am truly thankful for the time that I get to spend with him every week.” 

When Jerome arrived, he loved clothes but he really didn’t know anything about making them, she said. He helped her mostly by taking packages to the post office, picking up sewing and trimming supplies, and doing inventory. She helped him by teaching him some basics in designing, draping, patternmaking, and sewing.

“What I wanted him to learn was first making a simple tote bag,” she explained. “He made the flat pattern, cut and then sewed the bag. I was pretty impressed, he had never made anything like this before from scratch.  Now we are in the process of making a custom fit button up shirt with his measurements.  He is learning that he can take an existing flat pattern, and make the adjustments according to his (or someone else's) measurements.”

Jerome is a senior in high school and hopes to continue his education at a fashion school next fall, where he’ll have some skills when he enters the classroom.

“There were a lot of people in my life who influenced me,” Kate wrote. “I would love to be able to inspire and help someone work toward their goals and dreams.”

Meet David, Owner of Local Silkcreen Shop "Made In Brooklyn"

1. Where did you live before coming to Brooklyn?

I was born in a small town in Ukraine called White Church. I lived in Kiev Ukraine for the first few years of my life. My mother and I emigrated to Brooklyn NYC, when I was about 7 years old, almost 22 years ago. I have been living in Brooklyn ever since. Brooklyn is, was and always will be my home. 

2. What was it that inspired you to start your own silk-screening business?

I always loved the concept of DIY. I also had many dealings with printing shops from around the city and always had issues, with minimums and hidden fees. Because I was not getting hundreds or thousands of shirts, I always felt like I was on their secondary list. That's where my company is different. I worked in a tattoo shop for many years and have gotten to know many artists of all walks. That's who I want to work with, artists, or small companies that are just launching lines. I want to help artists and businesses grow and myself grow with them.

3. Do you have a certain medium you prefer using or printing on?

I recently did a project printing record boxes for vinyls. It was not an easy task, but it was a lot of fun getting away from fabrics and working on heavy card stock. My next project is going to be hand made business cards and I'm going to attempt to print skateboards!

 

4. Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your work?

Most of my inspirations comes from music and the artists all around me. It very difficult to be an artist full-time in this town. Everything is so outrageously expensive. I want to work with artists that have incredible artistic skills and talents. I want to help them get their names out there by printing their designs on anything i can get my hands on!

 

5. What are a couple of your favorite collaborations you've done? 

I love making merch for bands. So my favorite collaborations have been with STB Records and Poisoned Mind Records

6. What are you working on at the moment?

At this moment, I am working on various projects for the record labels. As well as a few projects for gyms and local companies based in Brooklyn. I am working on a few lines with tattoo artists which should be ready within the next few months. I just opened up and the orders keep flowing in! I am really excited about that!

 

7. Describe your ideal day off - what are you doing when you’re not working?

Don't have many of those nowadays! But a perfect day off would include sleeping in. A large lazy breakfast. Followed up by a dinner and a concert. If i can take a few days away, it would definitely include a road trip to get away from the grind of the city.

8. Do you have a favorite go to spot for food & drinks?

Brooklyn and NYC are full of incredible restaurants. My favorites would be Fette Sau, Traif or Hometown BBQ in Red Hook. For bars, I really dig Saint Vitus on Manhattan Ave or Pete's Ale House on Atlantic. 

 

9. If you had to live anywhere else in the world, where would it be and why?

I really love it in Brooklyn. It's the only place I can proudly call home. But one day I want to move away from big city life. Something with mountains and small populations. Like Northern California or Vermont. Where everything is made by your neighbors. I think I would really enjoy the quiet life, but not quite yet. For now my aim is to grow this company. So I will be staying right here and I am going to keep getting it Made In Brooklyn!!!

 

Sunday Brunch at Glasserie

We had the chance to check out this Greenpoint gem all the way north by the waterfront.

Glasserie is located in what was originally a glass factory built in 1860.

Throughout the restaurant you can find prints from their glass fixture catalogues.

 

The food has a sophisticated Mediterranean influence. I highly recommend going with a bunch of friends so you can order a variety of dishes and share family style.

Lamb turnovers.

 

Poached eggs in spicy tomato stew with bread slathered in tahini.

 

Lamb, apple, and yogurt sandwich.

 

Cauliflower and grapefruit with pine nuts.

 

 

Your table awaits!
