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.
