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.”
