Over the past two summers I have had an internship with Adrianna Papell and loved working with them. My mom works there so thats how I got the internship. Their office is right before Times Square on 7th Avenue. I loved working in New York City. I would commute from Jersey on the train which would take me an hour to get there so I would have to get up at the crack of dawn to leave. But all in all it was worth it since I got to learn a lot of things about the fashion industry to help me after I graduate. My first time being an intern there was very easy and laid back, I helped with the sales team and they buyers. Actually most of the time they forgot I was even there. There was no room in the office for me so I had to sit in the showroom with another intern that was working there at the same time as me. I would just sit on a laptop on Facebook for almost the entire day. It was really boring I barely did anything and I wasn't getting paid.
But the second time I did my internship I worked with the design team (btw I was getting paid this time :]) and that was more fun. Or should I say a lot more running around NYC. They literally had me non-stop running around the city, picking up samples, choosing buttons, picking up beads. It was never ending. But in the end it was all worth it. I got to see what it was like to work in the real fashion world in one of the biggest fashion cities.
