sorry i've been MIA for the past twenty years! life catches up with you!
wassup from the big apple!!! racking my brain for updates from the past few weeks! Work has been amazing as usual. Things have slowed down a bit so we have gotten sooooo much done. I've also become great friends with the ladies I work with and two of them came with me to the beach this weekend! It ceases to amaze me how cultured so many people are within the fashion industry and throughout NYC as a whole. Just a few things that some of my fellow interns have done or are going to do: Caroline- lived in LA, went to FIDM, now goes to FIT, and is going to Paris to study abroad next year; Victoria- studied in Germany and France, plans on doing a coop in Germany and getting a double degree in International Business from her school in the US and the school in Germany. Literally died. These women are incredible and keep in mind that we're all just interns together at Lucky! So much more ahead of us, and we get to work with some inspiring women at Conde Nast. It just keeps gettin better (cue Christina's song).
At work, I went with the Associate Market Editor to appointments to see a preview of the holiday collections for Splendid, Ella Moss, and a few other labels. I've helped the stylists edit through some of the looks for photoshoots, and attended a production meeting, where everyone joins together from each department to assure that everythin for the upcoming issues are on time, etc. Very cool! I've also become a pro at returns. Because last week was the 4th and a lot of people were on vacay etc, we caught up on sooo many old returns that I pretty much have it down to a science! It helps too when everyone is so appreciative!!
I traveled to Georgia on the 28th for an ADPi leadership convention. I know, doesn't sound too exciting, but I actually had a great time. The programming was interactive, and I met some presidents from other adpi chapters around the US who were down to earth and all around awesome.... ADPi nerd right here.
This past weekend was SO relaxing in Long Island. Sunday was probably my favorite beach day all summer! Beautiful weather, perfect water temp, and great tanning :)
I'll try and keep up with the posts!
