Internship News & Kerry Fashion Weekend 2012

Internship News & Kerry Fashion Weekend 2012

Hey everyone ! Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve blogged. As most of you might know, I’m in Monaghan at the moment Interning at the amazing Fashion label, NATALIEBCOLEMAN. I’ve been assisting with all the PR & Sales preparation ahead of New York & Paris Fashion weeks & I’m absolutely loving it so far. We’ve had some very long days in the last week, but I am learning an unbelievable amount each day & I’m over the moon to be here ! I’m documenting everything as it’s happening so I’ll be doing a post all about the Internship once I finish… & should have that ready at the weekend for you to see :)

Also, before I came to Monaghan, I helped out at the film shoot for the new collection, A/W 1213 ‘I LOVE ME’ in the beautiful Gibson Hotel in Dublin. There was such a great team there on the day & I cannot wait to see the final result. It will be posted on the Website, Facebook & Twitter very soon….so stay tuned !
