Week One-First week in the city
After moving in and trying to learn my way around the city, I started my week off with a short internship at the Texworld trade show. While it was interesting to see all the beautiful pieces of fabric the trade show had to offer, I actually found the entire experience pretty boring. I spent both days of my internship, standing around guarding a trend display, which is as easy as it sounds. The rest of the week I was looking for a challenge.
In my first day of the study tour class, we got a chance to see real high class shopping first hand by going to Madison Avenue, we started in Barney’s and went to all nine floors. I was really amazed by the variety of clothing Barney’s had, every time you stepped onto a new floor, it was like walking into a different store or showroom. I plan on going back to Barney’s to buy me at least one investment piece before I leave. After Barney’s went window shopping for accessories’; we stopped in Ivanna Trump’s jewelry store and tried on some beautiful diamond rings, while also doing a little networking with the sales associates. Then we went to Chanel, which was a learning experience in itself. We learned that only the Chanel costume jewelry has the double C’s on it, we also learned that Chanel has symbolic pieces like her Camelia flower. We also went to Donna Karen and Giuseppi Zanotti shoes, this day of shopping made me fall in love with fashion all over again!
To end my week, I started my internship at SELF magazine, found a really cool and pocket friendly diner in the NYU area, got lost on the subway, and had a beautiful dinner with my friends at the VIEW restaurant. I can’t wait for my adventures this week.
