”My biggest project was working on market week for fashion buyers. I have been able to assist the VP of Sales at Elizabeth and James in the new showroom!” 

I have always had a love for the fashion industry, and an aspiration to work in corporate retail and marketing.  As a rising Junior, I interned for Madison Paige, a brand that designs and sells women’s blouses and dresses to retailers.The showroom internship was a great opportunity because I learned all about the wholesale business in the Garment District. Working in a showroom is a very ‘behind-the-scenes’ job because we sell lines of merchandise to stores. Getting to know how stores choose and buy their inventory was a great learning experience, and I was able to network with industry professionals.

As a senior, I interned for Elizabeth and James.I helped the design team unpack the collection for pre-fall, and steam and organize it by style. I also helped them with some work on Excel to edit line sheets and make sure the garment descriptions were correct.My biggest project was working on  market week for fashion buyers. I have been able to assist the VP of Sales at Elizabeth and James in the new showroom! My previous internship experience helped, because I knew exactly what tasks need to be completed. It is obviously a little different for a high fashion line, so my main duty was to dress a live model. I kept the back room organized, and sent out models for the buyers to see every look.
