New York City Fashion Internship

           

We often hear from teenage girls who dream about an internship in fashion. Fashion internships can involve a multitude of experiences, so as we meet with individual students, we try to identify the type of experience that would best match their skills and particular interests.

Lauren, a student at Scarsdale High, had previously taken the Saturday program at FIT and wanted to have a “behind the scenes” experience in the fashion industry. We matched her to Stylcaster, a NYC on-line fashion company with an energetic young staff.

“What I love about the company is that my responsibilities vary day to day. I have catalogued merchandise, worked on the set of photo shoots and organized marketing events. My favorite thing was assisting guest stylists.”

Her mentor wrote a wonderful recommendation and said that Lauren was actually helping the college interns!

“Lauren exceeded all expectations with each assigned project. Her poise made her seem mature beyond her years and her responsibilities quickly expanded. She will undoubtedly be very successful in any direction she chooses.”

Boston Fashion Internship with Esteemed Designer

Hannah, a junior at Needham High, is passionate about writing and fashion. We searched for the right internship that would combine Hannah’s interests and talents and matched her to the hottest designer in Boston, Daniela Corte.

Hannah interned at the Newbury Street studio where she learned all aspects of running a fashion business. Her responsibilities included contacting high-end boutiques across the country, greeting clients and fashion editors, making travel arrangements, blogging about fashion and products and working on photo shoots.

Not only did Hannah learn what goes on behind the scenes, she learned what it takes to be a professional.

“Because I’m representing Daniela, I must be professional, knowledgeable, organized and responsible. It’s important to embody the vibe of her company. Seeing how she interacts with customers and industry insiders has given me a whole new outlook on how I need to present myself…I can actually see myself growing and learning.”

Boston Fashion Start-up Internship

Lauren has a bubbly and outgoing personality and loves art. A sophomore at Landmark School, she thought that she might be interested in a career in fashion. We matched Lauren to 2 young women who were CEO’s at fashion start-ups.

The first invited Lauren to help out at a trunk show where they demonstrated their innovative products; Clients have a hand at designing their own shoes.

The other CEO has a company that developed an innovative dress shoe that converts from a low to high heel. She hired Lauren as a summer intern.

In her journal, Lauren wrote,

“This internship gave me an inside look how to start a company in the fashion industry. Although my passion is fashion and design, I learned about business as well. I conducted research, communicated to vendors, used PowerPoint and Excel, sewed and designed.

New York City Fashion And Marketing Internship

Sophie is a sophisticated young woman at Columbia Grammar, interested in fashion and makeup. Because of her experience as a thoughtful consumer, she was able to express her own opinions about how items could be packaged and marketed more effectively.

We matched Sophie to a seasoned marketing mentor who was in the initial stages of starting a focus group and online community for girls to share their shopping finds, beauty advice, and style tips.

Her responsibilities included:

  • Involvement in online marketing + social media efforts through short-form communications
  • Watching, story boarding and writing short video segments on new trends.

Sophie learned about starting a fashion and beauty business in New York City and was able to express her views and opinions to the Senior Directors of this early stage company.

Lauren, High School internship – Fashion

Now in her twenties, Lauren is an Interior Designer at Gensler, NYC. Her career path began with a high school fashion internship that we established for her in New York City. At Scarsdale High, Lauren had previously taken the Saturday program at Fashion Institute of Technology and wanted to have a “behind the scenes” experience in the fashion industry. We established an internship at Style-Caster, a NYC on-line fashion company with an energetic young staff.  In her Internship Connection journal, Lauren wrote:

“What I love about the company is that my responsibilities vary day to day. I have catalogued merchandise, worked on the set of photo shoots and organized marketing events. My favorite thing was assisting guest stylists.”

Lauren’s Career Path: Scarsdale High School, Saturday Program at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Style-Caster, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Interior Design Major).

Lauren’s mentor wrote a wonderful recommendation and said that Lauren, even as a high school student, was actually helping the college interns.

“Lauren exceeded all expectations with each assigned project. Her poise made her seem mature beyond her years and her responsibilities quickly expanded. She will undoubtedly be very successful in any direction she chooses.”

It’s gratifying to see that Lauren’s responsibilities on her fashion internship served as an introduction to her college major and future career in design.

Hannah, High School Internship – Fashion and Journalism

Hannah is the Author of Playing with Matches and the Dating Editor at Elite Daily.

When Hannah was a junior at Needham High we placed her on two part-time internships relating to her dual interests: a fashion internship for Boston Designer Daniela Corte and a journalism internship with 3 Harvard grads, the Founders of Her Campus, an online magazine for college women. Hannah was always poised, diligent and appreciative of these opportunities.

She went on to NYU where she studied journalism and history, becoming the assistant features editor at Seventeen Magazine. She has written for Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and is the dating editor of Elite Daily. We are excited for Hannah as she received accolades for her first novel, named “A Best Book of Summer” by Refinery 29, Bustle, and Pop Sugar.
