A Day in the Life of a Fashion Intern
Posted by Stephany on 12:31 PM in | Comments : 1
9:00am Arrive to my fashion PR internship on time (whew!) and get settled in the intern room. Briefly chat with my fellow fashion interns.
9:05am Grab a notebook and check in with my account executive for my daily assignments.
9:10am Format press on the computer and compile it to show clients.
10:30am Assist a stylist by giving them a tour of the showroom and helping them chose items to pull. Get everything (sometimes heaps of clothes) approved by account executive and then write everything up.
11:45am Merchandise the showroom by arranging all clothes by designer, color and sleeve length.
12:30pm Another stylist has returned with tons of garment bags that need to be checked in.
1:00pm Just received an urgent email from a fashion magazine that needs clothes from our clients shipped to them by the end of the day! This includes: choosing items that fit their description, getting them approved by an account executive, constructing a box, folding clothes and placing them in neatly in box, creating a shipping label, packaging it up and sitting it on the bench in time for pick up.
2:30pm Officially starving! I brought a lunch but some of the account executives want me to go pick up their lunches. Um…
3:45pm Time to work on a pitch informing fashion bloggers of our client's latest lookbook.
4:30pm Assist stylist with a pull.
5:30pm Almost quttin' time! Time to tidy up the showroom and the intern room.
6:00pm Time to go! Another exhausting day completed.
