NAVIGATING THROUGH INTERNSHIP HURDLES.

This summer, having completed two internships, I can affirm that each of the companies I was working with sought to test different skills or abilities in the interns working with them.

A Fashion Stylist Assistant’s Reflection

As I write, I write having already completed my fashion internship. If there was a way I could compile my experience into a page, I totally would but there’s just no way to do that. My takeaways from this experience have far exceeded my expectations and I am beyond grateful for that. In fact, the…

Meeting Boston Fashion Week’s CEO

I had to take a huge breath before I met him. As I told my inner self that my mind was not lying to me, I finally came to terms with the fact that indeed…my stylist invited me to a meeting I really should not have been allowed to attend, but because of fashion stylist…

Behind The Scenes Fashion Photo Shoot Experience

I had always wanted to be a part of a photo shoot. Today – now over a month or so ago – I got a serious taste of that! My fashion stylist had told me about it a week in advance (as she always did) and me being me, I was super excited about it.…
