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. In retrospect, I recognize that the hurdles I overcame must have been intentionally put to test how I handled each situation. From the challenges…

Seeing the Jewelry

This week at work (week 6), I finally had the opportunity to learn about the jewelry and its production process. The tassel necklaces takes 10 hours of labor because they are hand beaded using a process that makes them impressively durable. The beads are made of hematite and some are polished to be shiny or…

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.…

Unexpected Highlight: Fashion Instillation Presentation

Every time I have a new assignment or event, my stylist was always good about notifying me about it. About a month ago I received an email from Terri requesting that I meet her in the city to discuss few important items she and I needed to brain storm for Boston Fashion Week happening the…

Designer Luke Aaron’s Fashion Show

The more fashion shows I attended, the more I just couldn’t wait to kick-start my career within the fashion industry. I was fortunate enough (again) to be able to attend yet ANOTHER fashion show. This time it was very exclusive, so my stylist found a way to get an extra seat for her assistant (me!).…

Boston Caribbean Fashion Week and Rhode Island Fashion Show!

The events I have been exposed to have been absolutely AMAZING. One of which was Boston Caribbean Fashion Week which occurred few weeks after the one I facilitated at the genesis of my internship. The only difference between my first fashion show and the one that happened at Boston Caribbean Fashion Week was that I…

Getting To Know The Fashion Stylist

It’s amazing how my stylist, Terri, really took the time to get to know me initially before my internship began. Though I was oriented very well my first day on the job facilitating my first ever fashion show, Terri made sure she always set aside time to get to know me and my ambitions. Few…
