Gawd you guys...so I should really tell you all about Company! I'm sorry that I haven't updated you but as I'm sure you can understand things have been pretty mental/hectic & also I've had some internet issues.
Anyway I can't believe this is going to be my final week... I'll probably now keep posting about it afterwards as there's so much to catch up on.
Then in September I'll be talking about some new ventures, some great fashion events and of course getting into the realms of London Fashion Week - I'm so excited for September. It'll be fashion central... oh, and I'm off to Uni! If any of you guys are let me know - maybe we'll even be in the same place!
I don't want to overwhelm you with heaps of writing so as I said I'll definitely be posting about Company for a while over multiple posts. I'm gathering more photographic "evidence" in my final week too ;)
I was pretty nervous about my first day; looking the part, getting there on time, remembering everything... Lucky for me the Company fashion team is lovely to work with. They may often be stressed or too busy to help but at the end of the day we'll chat about everything and the whole experience hasn't actually been too stressful at all! A big difference to what I've heard from other interns. Not only has it not been too stressful but I've actually got to do so much more than I thought I would, and again a lot more than others. Seriously we work so hard to impress our superiors! On my first day I met Tobi, the other intern, and we got on so well. I love her style & whether she wants to be or not I'll get some photos of her up on here.
My first week mainly consisted of learning the ins and outs of the fashion cupboard. We did returns [luckily not on foot!], made appointments for the team and got prices for credits. It's really interesting liaising with PRs and we had great fun calling in items for an celebrity shoot.
I was absolutely amazed when on my second day the fashion director asked if I wanted to go on a photoshoot with her that Thursday - my first week! I'd tried really hard to impress her and it looked like it worked. The photoshoot was amazing and it was a great opportunity to get one on one time with the fashion director before she went on holiday; I asked a lot of questions! It was just the two of us on the shoot plus make up artist, hair stylist, photographer + assistant, and because we were lucky enough to have a location bus, our driver Dan!
The final images looked absolutely stunning & I wanted so many of the clothes used. It was an edgy British lady look with tweed, dogtooth & tartan matched again leather and boots; yum. We used a gorgeous 1960s Ford Mustang [car] too as a backdrop - my favourite! I was so grateful for the experience and I was focused on making sure the FD had everything she needed, taking credits & I even got to help with styling! Wow.
More soon - and images too!
Lots of love x
