perhaps your advice on the experience prior to the internship? how you prepared for it as far as your resume? previous experience you think assisted you getting that internship? etc? great article by the way, makes me feel better for the future.

Good read

Your article is totally spot-on. I've interned at an internationally-acclaimed fashion magazine and two huge PR agencies and I gotta say, internships may be tough (at times) but it really moulds your perceptions of the industry and shapes your experiences.

i enjoyed this a lot!i have always dreamt about such an internship and i often think about how i would deal with *insert absurd situation here* ..where i live (calcutta,india) i haven't come across any such opportunities..maybe when i move i will get something...being a film studies student i want to combine my love for fashion and films and work in the wardrobe department maybe someday..

Thanks for this review. I'm an upcoming senior in college and this is a big help for me when i take my internship later on :)

It's weird and naive to gather knowledge from a movie even though fashion industry seems rather unique... Good luck anyway :)
