GREENVILLE, S.C. (December 1, 2016) – Leigh Anne Riggs, a senior apparel, textile and design major at Bob Jones University, interns for OOBE, located in Greenville, South Carolina.
Riggs, a resident of Tazewell, Tennessee, serves in the design department. Her responsibilities include creating fashion illustrations using Adobe Illustrator, doing trend forecasting, creating mood boards and flats, working with merchandise, sewing, doing product quality tests, organizing and creating notebooks of tech packs for accounts by year and garment description.
