How was it to be a Fashion Intern?

It’s not just about glitz and glamour or passion for fashion there’s got to be dedication and hard work.

Hustle the early morning call time, late night pack up, even all-nighter sometimes. The job requires physical strength, patience, creativity, and intellect. I remember carrying stuff like bags of clothes and movable racks, helping arrange the set, steaming the clothes, and running for errands. It tested my patience for there were a lot of waiting, retakes, re-do, and re-steaming. Some days I need to write short articles, at times I will be researching for current trends, I get to assist in styling, graphic/photo editing, and do transcribing. Not to mention I need to be street smart for all the commuting.

It’s not all work and no play.¬† I have gained perks beyond my expectations. Exclusive invites to events, lux freebies, met great new friends, and food (A lot of food). I can just imagine boxes of pizza behind every editorial and breakfast to dinner buffet in every campaign. And the most important are the experiences and lessons that I will carry with me forever.
